Anybody see Lawrence O'Donnell just destroy Tom Selleck?

Gave him hell for the NRA and their adv using Obama's children. Rant went on for several minutes, and then he called him out and questioned his humanity.

2. Wish I could explain it better than the original post, but that rant

is one for the ages. Everyone needs to catch that video clip.

9. you gave an accurate & succinct summary, elwood.

this was one of o'donnell's most memorable & brilliant "last word" segments - from the beginning to the kick in the pants end.

have always enjoyed selleck's low key acting - but now, i have a completely different view of him...and i am waiting to see what this hollywood actor does with this challenge to "show his humanity".

6. NO

Selleck has been on the board of NRA and has been silent about all shootings since Columbine.

8. Ah.. didn't know he was on the NRA Board! good for

L O'D calling him out then. Remember when Rosie O'Donnell called out Tom Selleck on her show a long time ago? Some said "ambushed".

Thanks RichGirl

10. They showed the video clip on the show

At first I was confused when Lawrence referred to another O'Donnell show in 1999, but it was a perfect illustration of his point. Thanks so much for posting this. It's a must-see!

12. I'm not holding my breath that he'll respond

But Rosie is certainly exonerated. Apparently, Mr. Selleck chose to step up to the plate when his good friend Charlton Heston was in failing health and the NRA needed a high powered replacement...
