Lawrence O’Donnell Backtracks, Endorses Barney Frank For Senate

Earlier this week MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell threw his hat in the ring for the vacant U.S. Senate seat from the great state of Massachusetts.

On Twitter, Facebook and “The Last Word’”s website, viewers strongly supported the idea of “Senator O’Donnell.”

“I reached for the phone to call Governor Patrick, when I realized, I didn’t have his phone number,” O’Donnell said. “Then I realized that I would have to establish a residence in Massachusetts, which I would have to do Mitt Romney style and use the basement of my brother Kevin’s house, and he is a Republican, which would make things wicked awkward at the breakfast table.”

So, with all of that said, O’Donnell decided to endorse his guest that evening, former Congressman Barney Frank.
