MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell: We Can’t Cover Bob Menendez Trial, Because Donald Trump Is On Twitter

The laundry list of Menendez’s ethical issues actually goes a lot deeper, since those “lavish vacations” allegedly involved the hiring of prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, but that’s the gist of it.

The charges were filed back in April.  Since then, virtually no Dem-friendly media outlet has been reporting on it. We all know why. The bias is so obvious at this point that no one seriously tries to deny it anymore.

Still, hacks like MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell occasionally try to pretend they’re doing their best to cover these sorts of stories.  According to O’Donnell, they simply can’t. The reason?  Donald Trump.

It’s seems Donald Trump is so awful that they have no choice but to ignore Democrat corruption.  Trump is on Twitter, you see, and there are only so many hours in the day. As O’Donnell said during a recent radio interview:

“If we had anyone else in the White House, if we had any other president in the White House, any other of the Republicans that were running for president, never mind, have Hillary Clinton as president, the Menendez trial would be a very big item in all of our coverage. But this is what Donald Trump has done to coverage; the trying to keep up with everything the president is generating on a given day is just overwhelming. Now you have a special prosecutor and that is more important case than the Menendez case. If it not were for the special prosecutor’s investigation and the congressional investigations and the Trump presidency, Menendez coverage would be much higher.”
