Lawrence O'Donnell reignited his long-running feud with Glenn Beck on his Wednesday show, expressing outrage that Beck had called President Obama's trip to Ground Zero "slimy" and "disgusting" on his radio show. Beck said that the trip—Obama's first during his presidency—was just happening because Obama was trying to score more political points off of the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
O'Donnell noted that Beck had actually celebrated (though with tongue somewhat in cheek) Bin Laden's death on his Monday show with a marching band and confetti.
"So after saying the event was worthy of a marching band, Beck now says that the president of the United States going to the place that made Osama Bin Laden the most famous and dangerous terrorist in history is inappropriate," O'Donnell said in a silkily contemptuous voice. "In Beck's word, disgusting. Disgusting. As he's proven time and time again disgusting is way too nice a word for Glenn Beck."
