Howard Fineman appeared Thursday on MSNBC's 'The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell' to discuss the recent resignations of multiple senior campaign aides to Newt Gingrich.

Fineman explained, "I think the staffers, the ones that I know, have been unhappy from the beginning with the way Newt Gingrich was trying" to run his campaign.

Summing up his feelings about Gingrich's presidential campaign, Fineman said, "it was never clear to me at all that he was ever really serious about it. And now we know for sure that he wasn't, at least in the eyes of all the people who quit today."
