Lawrence O’Donnell and the Tiger Woods ‘Lifestyle’

by Eliana Johnson

During his speech to the RNC Wednesday night, Senator McConnell jokingly remarked that President Obama has been more focused on earning a spot on the PGA tour than on earning re-election.  In this, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell detects racism among both Senator McConnell and his speechwriters and, beyond that, an attempt to associate the president with Tiger Woods’s, um, “lifestyle.”  Challenged by host Martin Bashir, O’Donnell does not back down.
