Lawrence O'Donnell let Bill-O have it for his rant the previous evening, where he was still trying to blame Trayvon Martin for his own death because he was wearing a hoodie.
July 23, 2013

During Bill O'Reilly's ugly rant of a Talking Point Memo this Monday night, along with the laundry list of other really offensive things he said, he was still taking a cue out of Geraldo's book and blaming Trayvon Martin for his own death because he was wearing a hoodie.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell let him have it during his Rewrite segment the following evening and reminded his audience that Martin isn't the only one out there wearing "clothing sometimes used by street criminals."

O'DONNELL: Now, I would have had no problem with that line, if O'Reilly rewrote it to say "and sometimes used by Fox News gangsters."
