Former ESPN and MSNBC broadcaster Keith Olbermann appeared on ABC’s “The View,” on Friday where he claimed that Osama bin Laden did less to hurt the United States than President Donald Trump.
After he was asked does he really believe that Trump and his family have done more damage to America than bin Laden and ISIS combined, Olbermann answered:
“Yeah, we did really well after 9/11. I don’t think that the country has given itself enough credit for what we did not do. We did not restrict all the freedoms in this country. We did not single out people.”
Why do you separate yourself from the terrorists, Dondi? You and your family have done more damage to America than Bin Laden + ISIS combined https://t.co/TaKeIP6RFt

“3,000 people died on 9/11,” co-host Meghan McCain interjected. “The comparison is absurd.”
“But more people died in the Iraq War than died in 9/11. We didn’t need to be there as a response,” Olbermann said.
“You think Bin Laden did less to damage America than President Trump?” asked McCain.
“Yes,” Olbermann said.
Can I tell you something? When I hear rhetoric like that, I think Whoopi and I are in agreement that we want Americans to come together. Rhetoric like that is so damaging. By the way, my brother fought in the Iraq war and deployed numerous times. So before we start tit for tatting, there’s a lot of service in my family. So I don’t understand, when you are saying things like that, bin Laden was dedicated to the destruction of all, everything that we hold dear and our freedom, so when you compare it to that,” McCain said.
Olbermann said: “The Iraq War was a waste of these people’s lives. And it was unnecessary.”
“Do you want President Trump to fail?” McCain said. “Do you want America to fail? Because I’m genuinely curious.”
I cannot believe there is this much stupidity in the world. The worst part is the media gives them a voice to spew this shit.
Take a good look at this guy, because Olbermann is the face of what the American Left looks and sounds like. It’s just that Keith’s a bit blunter, that’s all… But Olbermann does say what many of them think, and that’s exactly why Keith is still around after all these years, and why he still has an audience who he can show his ass to five days a week…
And as far as John McCain’s kid claiming that Whoppi “wants Americans to come together” goes, Whoopi has made plenty of Taliban/Republican and Trump/coup comments herself, so please, give me a freakin break.
