MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell aired a hard-hitting attack ad he penned about Chris Christie that takes aim at the New Jersey Governor's possible GOP presidential run, Politico reported Thursday.

"I wrote that ad in a few minutes," O'Donnell told viewers on Wednesday. "I was just sitting there listening to him, just grabbed those quotes and wrote it," he said, referring to Christie's mea culpa press conference a week ago regarding bridge-gate.

"I wrote this commercial while Chris Christie was actually still doing his press conference. You can do this at home, it’s easy."

The narrator of the O'Donnell commercial questions whether Christie could be trusted if he were to be elected president: "Chris Christie embarrassed and humiliated New Jersey, don't let Chris Christie embarrass and humiliate America."

Story continues below video.



In May 2012, five months before the presidential election, Fox News came under fire for producing a four-minute TV commercial attacking President Obama. Fox then issued a statement the video "was not authorized at the senior executive level."

MSNBC could not be reached for comment, Politico said.
