He’s been off the air for over a month after suffering injuries in an automobile accident, so Lawrence O’Donnell called up his show last night to update viewers on his recovery.
“I’m getting pretty good on crutches,” O’Donnell said, adding he’s doing okay in physical therapy after breaking his hip and injuring his legs in a taxi cab accident while vacationing.
He also poured cold water on substitute host Ari Melber suggesting O’Donnell will be back soon.
“Ari, what is this bit about me coming back soon…who says I’m coming back soon?” O’Donnell joked, asking Melber if his absence was interrupting Melber’s vacation plans.
O’Donnell told Melber he can clear his calendar at some point in June, when he returns to host “The Last Word.”
