Lawrence O'Donnell didn't give Birther and recent Donald Trump fan Franklin Graham the kind of pass he got from Christiane Amanpour on This Week, but man, was this interview painful to watch. O'Donnell laid Graham's hypocrisy bare when it came to pretending that he didn't know full well that our President is a Christian, but he let him off the hook for the Birther nonsense, just like Amanpour did.

O'Donnell had an opportunity to really go after Graham when he gave his blathering answer as to whether he'd actually given up everything when he supposedly devoted his life to Christ, but he just allowed Graham to ramble on and make a fool of himself instead of a doing a little follow-up.

I don't know how much money the Grahams take in every year, but I imagine they're doing pretty well if they could afford to be flying Sarah Palin around on private jets awhile back.

Can you help us out?
