MSNBC is now doing the Democratic National Committee’s work for them. On Wednesday evening, host Lawrence O’Donnell produced an anti–Chris Christie ad and provided opponents material for future TV spots.
O’Donnell told viewers he wrote the ad while watching the New Jersey governor’s two-hour press conference last week. He presented the ad as one that the governors opponents could use in the 2016 GOP primary. “I mean, I wrote that ad in a few minutes,” he said. “I was just sitting there listening to him, just grabbed those quotes and wrote it. You can do this at home, it’s easy.”
