  1. Trump- lets nuke s hurrican
    North korea is shooting rockets
    Trump -I got a love letter
    911 Anniversary in two days
    Trump-Lets send an invitation letter.

  2. MSNBC and Lawrence O'Donnell along with "Sources" and Susan Rice…? get ready for another Retraction…
    Is this the same Susan Rice that Unmasked the Trump Campaign Officials…? and then Lied about it…
    Not Very Credible MSNBC… Try Harder Your Ratings are dropping as we speak.

  3. and susan rice was the main liar of the fake news reason for the assault on Benghazi telling all Americans that her information was true, which it was not.

  4. Oh Susan on another media tour? Americans remember the last time she did that, SHE LIED about the MURDER of our ambassador John Christopher Stevens! Remember that Susan you freakin' CRIMINAL! But don' you worry, after Hillary is locked in prison, you'll be NEXT!!

  5. HEY, HOW MANY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE DO YOU THINK HILLARY MURDERED WITH HER GMO GENOCIDE PLAN https://www.globalresearch.ca/hillary-clinton-pushes-gmo-agenda-hires-monsanto-lobbyist-takes-huge-dollars-from-monsanto/545098...

  6. Trump is possibly the most intellectually incurious person I've ever seen.  He knows less than nothing, and yet he refuses to listen to the experts with years of experience in their fields. Instead of surrounding himself with highly qualified experts, he has surrounded himself with C and D list sycophants, roguish grifters, and the most unqualified and unprincipled staff of  neophytes ever assembled. As it stands now, only this most unqualified, unprincipled, and quite possibly, mentally disturbed people would want the job as his National Security Adviser

  7. The same Susan Rice who masterminded the unmasking of dozens of Democrat opponents? Please. Can’t you find a single HONEST former Obama official to interview?

  8. Susan Rice was completely unqualified to serve as National security advisor. But is a Obama sychophant who was willing to break numerous laws to appease her boss. she gave us all some insight into her level of intelligence, when she emailed herself on her last day in the white house. She was part of the coup to remove President Trump and should spend the rest of her life in GTMO

  9. The least qualified NSA in recent memory…but she ticks all the politically correct boxes which is all that counted for Barry and his Stooges.

  10. Ms. Rice did an outstanding job in any capacity and makes Americans proud of how it used to be and how our government will be again come 2020… We have a major problem when the Candidate with millions fewer votes wins… We need to be a true Democracy…

  11. Why are you still on the air Lawrence O'Donell?? Fake News.!!!! President Trump and the Patriots have got this!! They are in complete control!! I'm so enjoying the show!!! You can't touch Flynn!!! He is an American Hero!!! Boomerang is coming and you all know it!!! Treason!!! You all are going down! The American People are awake!! Love this segment. You are such fools and can't hide the fear on your faces!!! You no longer control the narrative…praise God!!! Yes and Youtube sucks….before my own eyes saw the likes of my comment go down.

  12. Susan rice is a treasonist criminal and when General Barr and John Durham hand down a plethora of indictments her name will surely be on one. Not only did her foreign policy fail America in every way, but she conspired in the Coup D'etat against Trump, helped in the hillary cover up, Uranium One, 30 K deleted emails and was never competent to do more than clean toilets.

  13. Msnbc you should be ashamed faje news putting a liar like susan rice on your fake news network 🇺🇸we the people dont believe a word you say like susan rice just lies lies lies 🇺🇸

  14. Flynn was the only one that was honest, that is why he didn't last very long, MSNBC a propaganda network will only tell you what they want you to believe. Bolton was a war mongering piece of trash left over from the Bush administration, why would Trump allow the swamp flood into his cabinet? Wonder what bottom dweller Trump will allow to resurface to another position to replace Bolton, Washington is like a garbage recycling plant, they bury the trash until everybody forgets about them then they are allowed to resurface to the top years later to stink up the world.

  15. America is loaded with traitors and enemies of its great constitution. No nation on the planet has such a wonderful constitution as the Constitution of the United States. " The pursue of life liberty and happiness.

  16. Fire whoever tried bringing the Taliban to Camp David around 9/11 (or any time). Those terrorist murderers don't belong anywhere in America.

  17. Hummm!
    I myself, willll stick to my Presidents Plann !
    Maybe a Very Pleasant Gift to My Republic, I love while MAGA !!!
    AS FAR AS SUSAN, ISNT SHE SPEAKING FROM THE OBAMA CAMP AGAIN ?

    The ohh yea,
    Now, go back to doing EVERYTHING BY THE BOOK GAL
    Nevermind !
    YEAAA.!
    .TRANSPARENTCY ISNT A GOOD THING ,
    IS IT SUSAN?
    hope she reads the CONSTITUTION AGAIN..
    AFTER SHE SEES, SHE WORKED FOR THE PEOPLE, AND NOT THAT EMPTY CHAIR .
    sorry but everything ive said Was Also Seen On Your own PROGRAMS IN THE PAST, MSNBC.

    not dm

  18. Cleaning out the swamp takes time lady! Its like every candidate list he gets thrown in front of him is made by the democrats or the elites in which case they aren't a good fit and they are sowing discourse and adding problems to the administration in between.

  19. Ideal time to get the war criminal Bolton behind bars – Qantanamo bay preferably (with Ms Rice). The fact that DT employed him in the first place shows DT intelligence.

  20. Yeah Obama was so interested in our national security that's why he want give billions to Iran so they can have a nuclear bomb good thing we voted Trump in he put a stop to that stupid stuff!

  21. Oh yeah, her…I recall Rice coming to Ethiopia in support of a Marxist dictator Meles Zenawi and even calling families of his victims and his political opponents “Stupid”…on Ethiopian national TV. Such a peach, she is.

  22. Bolton is a traditional war mongar… You people know this and said that… Trump used him because he is intelligent but the President has a method to prevent war. You have no concept of WHY WE SHOULD BE USING OUR WEALTH TO GUIDE PEOPLE TO FREEDOM. You all think that we should conform to others, and then act surprised when we get attacked. Wake up to how you guide people… Then you look to Susan Rice? SMH… inept people are going to preach their supiority when that are inept… Susan Rice is a establishment joke.

    Media ignorance and wasteland..

  23. Susan Rice — this pathetic and compulsive liar needs to be in jail !
    She lied to congress far more than General Flynn did. Flynn never lied to congress – he was accused of lying to the FBI which we all know was nothing more than a purgery trap to try and get to Trump…just one of Mueller's games he played. Yet he didn't touch Rice who flat out lied to congress under oath and on camera ! Repeatedly….the ole Democrat double standard — AGAIN…

  24. MSNBC you cockroaches risking the life of an undercover agent and dimishing our ability to procure needed information to keep our country safe by running this story. Everyone at MSNBC involved in this story should be arrested for treason.

  25. Rice loses ALL credibility with the jibe about Trump being at fault, not Bolton. She was appointed by Obama and they made more than their fair share of blunders together – to say the least.

  26. Susan Rice, the one that spent days on talk shows as the National Security Advisor under the Obama administration to protect Obama by shoveling the BS about the Benghazi attack being the result of a protest about a video when she knew it was not true, ya lets listen to what she has to say.

  27. Rice was the worst NSA ever. Nothing but a "yes man" for Obama. She had the audacity to lie with a straight face that the attack on the American embassy in Libya was due to some obscure video made by some unknown individual. Disgusting.

  28. Susan Rice allowed billions in cash to be sent to Iran, watched Russia invade Ukraine, invaded Libya which is now a mess, Syrian war and the list goes on and on…

  29. I watched the tape where Trump was talking to Jeffery Epstein at that party everybody made a fuss a about. I could have sworn that John Bolton was standing about 10 feet away in front when Trump whispered in Jeffery' ear.

  30. Susan Rice-"Benghazi was not an act of terrorism". Susan, you are the BIGGEST liar on the planet.
    You are a disgrace, but as long as you bash Trump, you will always have a place to spew on MSDNC.

  31. Rice lied, people died. More thumbs down than thumbs up, like CNN on this story and it's not because of the rotten guest.

  32. President Obama was President for 8 years and accomplished only 2 things, Trump has been President for 3 years and accomplished over 20 things.

  33. Every time trump fires someone I am thankful we have gotten rid of whatever ,corrupt or incompetent clown it happens to be.That gratitude is immediately followed by dread of who will be thrust upon us.I always fear the next person who’s judgement is so poor they think it a good idea to work for trump.

  34. REPUBLICANS SWEEP NORTH CAROLINA SPECIAL ELECTIONS… Just letting everyone know since you’re not seeing it covered on MSNPC.

  35. hahaha check out earlier comments and the "likes" for this vid. More people on the right must watch MSNBC than on the LEFT . When do dey find da time da watch FAUX news anymore? dey do dat doh don't dey? chuckle : –proof they think this is REAL news instead of the slop FAUX feeds them. ~ got here by accident I don't watch either one "don't want NO MUSH!"

  36. Trump will never appoint anyone who meets any of Ambassador Rice's criteria for national security adviser. In the first place Trump will never appoint anyone to his Regime who has integrity. If Trump should fail and appoint someone with integrity, that person would refuse to work for such an incredibly corrupt person as Donald J. Trump. Undoubtedly Trump will appoint yet another fawning sycophant.
