The MSNBC host claimed the president had told an "evil lie" when he claimed during the 2016 presidential election race that he had lost "hundreds" of friends in the twin towers, changing that figure to "many, many people" in an appearance on Meet the Press just one day later.

"As soon as Trump said that in the campaign debate in South Carolina that he lost hundreds of friends on 9/11, I said that he was lying," O'Donnell said on Tuesday night. "I didn't know how many friends he lost on 9/11 but I knew it wasn't hundreds."

"Knowing the way Donald Trump lies as I do, I suspected then that the real number was zero, and then I checked, and the real number was zero. Donald Trump did not attend a single 9/11 funeral, not one," he added.[link:https://www.newsweek.com/msnbcs-odonnell-slams-trump-over-evil-lie-about-losing-hundreds-friends-911-1118108|
