NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: During an MSNBC segment, Lawrence O'Donnell, a fervent liberal commentator, hailed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as the "chosen one" in the wake of Donald Trump's conviction for falsifying business records in the Stormy Daniels hush money trial.

On the show, O'Donnell shared with viewers a glowing 1995 article from the Harvard Crimson.

Notably, Bragg had his tenure as a leader in the Harvard Black Students Association during his undergraduate years at the liberal arts college.

The Crimson article was published following Bragg's arrangement of a speech on campus by Leonard Jeffries — a controversial City University of New York African Studies professor.

Jeffries gained notoriety four years earlier for suggesting that Jews and the Mafia collaborated to suppress the Black community.

“The Crimson ran a profile of him and the title of that profile, in his last week of college, was the ‘anointed one,’ ” O’Donnell said in conversation with fellow host Rachel Maddow on the night of May 31.

He added, “You finish that article thinking, ‘Yeah that’s the right title. That’s who this guy is.’"

“The people of Manhattan who elected him, that’s what they saw. They saw somebody who is dedicated to doing this job and doing it flawlessly and so profoundly modestly,” O’Donnell gushed.

Erroneously speculating, the article mentioned that Bragg would likely not pursue a career in politics, praising his skill in bridging diverse individuals and conflicting perspectives.

Meanwhile, Trump has pledged to appeal his conviction, with his campaign raising $53 million within the first 24 hours following the verdict.

Netizens slam O'Donnell, call him a 'sick freak' 

Viewers were not very pleased after O'Donnell made his comments on Alvin Bragg, tagging him as the 'anointed one'.

One viewer expressed, "Unbelievable."

Another shared, "And people think this is “news” and information that msnbc offers…. It’s no wonder the US is such a mess."

One viewer pointed out, "Pathetic."

A follower observed, "Don is such a loser."

One comment stated, "The level of disgust these monsters have put on full display is astounding. Every word from their State Media just pushes more to the side of the people. Ew."

Someone else wrote, "Lawrence o'donnell is a mule."

"Sick freaks," shared an individual.
