Lawrence O’Donnell: Trump Camp Wants Us to Believe He’s Working on His Speech

‘I cannot, with any reasonable authority tell you that Donald Trump was actually working on his speech tonight’

O'DONNELL: "Donald Trump is at his Florida home tonight. His staff claims that he is preparing his inaugural address. Actually, kind of working on the writing of it with senior members of his team. It should always be remembered that reporting from inside the Trump camp is never authoritative, because no source speaks for Donald Trump including Donald Trump. Donald Trump could personally give a reporter a tip on background one day that turns out to be false by the end of that day, because Donald Trump was either lying or changed his mind. And so I cannot with any reasonable authority tell you that Donald Trump was actually working on his speech tonight. I can only tell you that members of the Trump staff want you to think that."
