Lawrence and Martin talk RNC speeches

Updated

For the second day in a row, the first guest on Martin Bashir’s eponymous msnbc program was one Lawrence O’Donnell. And for the second day in a row, the lead interview of that broadcast featured the two politically sharp minds trading spot-on analysis of the RNC laced with plenty of sarcasm. Several chuckles could be heard across The Last Word newsroom.

Today, Martin and Lawrence discussed the aftermath of last night’s RNC keynote speech by Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ). Things started off with some talk about “love.”

The pair also previewed tonight’s speeches from former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) and presumptive vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).

Lawrence also gave his thoughts on the closed-door process of the convention speechwriters.

“These people reach for every single possible racial double entendre they can possibly find in every one of these speeches… I know these speechwriters are insensitive. I know the way they work. They do not have the same sensitivity level that others speechwriters do.”
