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.

One of the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee who will be interviewing special counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday explained to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell why she believes it is time to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) immigrated to the United States from Ecuador as a child. When Mucarsel-Powell was sworn-in to office following the 2018 midterm elections, she became the first Ecuadorian-American and first South American immigrant member of Congress.
"Most Americans don't have time to read a 448-page report," Mucarsel-Powell said. "We found substantial evidence that shows us that the president obstructed justice. "And I think it is critical for the American public to understand that and that’s why this hearing will be very important on Wednesday."
Watch Rachel Maddow broadcast ‘exclusive story’ that undermines Mike Pence’s claims
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Monday presented an "exclusive story" -- that undermines public claims by the Trump administration.

Pence has described the treatment of detainees as "compassionate" and "excellent."
But that was not what Maddow reported on Monday.
"You haven’t seen this anywhere else," she introduced. "This is the first time this has been broadcast."
The story was an exclusive interview NBC News correspondent Julia Ainsley conducted with a child refugee from Guatemala who was held in one of the camps for eleven days.
