Stephen Colbert empathizes with Lawrence O'Donnell, the MSNBC host who has apologized for a leaked off-air rant.

After describing O'Donnell's behavior as "Dad on day three of (a) road trip," The Late Show host admitted, "This can happen to the best of us."

In the spirit of solidarity, Colbert released footage of his own "meltdown," in which he was being antagonized by drilling and a woman ringing sleigh bells in his ear.
