On Monday's show, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell slammed Craig Sonner, the "cowardly" lawyer representing George Zimmerman, for fleeing from interview at the last minute.

Moments before the show, the guest walked off the set and into his waiting car provided by MSNBC, literally running away from Lawrence's tough questions on the murder investigation.

Proving the show must go on, Lawrence furiously ran through his line of questioning to the empty chair that was supposed to be occupied by Sonner. His client is the man who shot and killed Florida teen, Trayvon Martin.

"Who is paying you, Mr. Lawyer? Who hired you?" he demanded of the vacant seat.

New York Times columnist Charles Blow also weighed in on the investigation. He also took partial credit for scaring away George Zimmerman's lawyer.


Okay, the fact that they interviewed the chair just made me laugh my ass off. The rest of the segment is also very, very good, with Charles Blow talking about his time with the family and the case in general. Also, not entirely sure what to tag this. Suggestions?

I wanted to slither under the desk and die on his behalf.
