Watch MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell Crack Up as They Discuss Giuliani's Stormy Daniels Admission

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell was responsible for informing his colleague Rachel Maddow late Wednesday night about the latest breaking news in the Stormy Daniels case, and they were both grinning and laughing as they discussed the developments.

"Rudy Giulian went on the other network, went on Fox News, and he stayed on longer than he should have because that's when he got to the Stormy Daniels admission," O'Donnell said. "Rudy Giuliani, telling Sean Hannity — who was asking good questions about this stuff — that the president reimbursed Michael Cohen for the $130,000."

"Did the president flat-out say that he didn't pay Stormy Daniels — you had to ask Michael Cohen, Michael Cohen dealt with that, he didn't know anything about that?" Maddow asked. "And now his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, says 'Oh yeah, he paid it.'"

The pair could hardly contain their laughter throughout.
