Olbermann: Trump’s reckless handling of intelligence would have gotten Hillary ‘impeached before sunrise’

Published

on

Reaching back to the not-so-distant past, when conservatives had a meltdown over Hillary Clinton’s private email servers, commentator Keith Olbermann railed at President Donald Trump’s infinitely worse handling of national security.

Addressing Trump posing for pictures at his Mar-a-Lago resort dining room as aides scurried around with information on a North Korea missile launch, Olbermann called it “mind-boggling.”

“The president of the United States was reportedly receiving information vital to the security of the nation about a provocative North Korea missile test in a golf club restaurant,” Olbermann began with disdain.

“Not merely in a setting of insecurity, but surrounded by and photographed by people who could be anything from gawking tourists to Russian agents,” he continued. “And if this cannot get worse, the president couldn’t be bothered to even leave the dinner to go to slightly more private place where random passers-by cannot take souvenir pictures of a security briefing so they can post them later to Facebook.”

“Trump slandered Hillary Clinton,” Olbermann remarked. “You could argue Trump beat Hillary Clinton on charges on insecure handling of emails. Nothing she was ever accused of, nothing, comes close to this debacle near Trump’s version of the Bushwood country club,” a reference to the club used in the movie ‘Caddyshack.’

“If Clinton had done just this, the Republicans would have impeached her before sunrise,” Olbermann concluded.

Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, spent his day with MSNBC to provide live analysis on the first day of televised impeachment hearings.

"It’s also striking, George, that every defense falls apart almost before the end of a single news cycle," anchor Nicolle Wallace reported. "Everything that people have said in an effort to defend him has collapsed under the weight of the president’s conduct."

"What we just heard the president say is delusional," Conway replied. "And it’s debilitating."

Published

President Donald Trump looked on as Turkish President Recep Erdo?an denied the Armenian Genocide during a joint press conference at the White House.

Trump allowed Erdo?an's visit despite Turkey's ethnic cleansing of America's Kurdish allies in northern Syria.

Onlookers were shocked that Erdo?an did this in front of the president and multiple Republican senators.

From the White House, Erdogan is ranting about the Armenian Genocide, saying it didn’t happen and that he wants to set up a “history commission.”
