‘Beneath contempt’: Olbermann blasts Trump’s ‘self-serving exploitative’ trip to Texas to get his face on TV
Commentator Keith Olbermann was all over President Donald Trump’s trip to Texas on Tuesday as the region affected by Hurricane Harvey was still reeling and and first responders and the National Guard have their hands full rescuing people.
According to Olbermann, the trip was self-serving for a president who himself is reeling in the polls.
“Trump’s self-serving, wasteful, exploitational, resource-draining ill-conceived plan to travel to Texas in the middle of the nightmare there was beneath contempt,” he began. “But the tone-deafness, the disconnectedness, the cruelty, the inhumanity of Trump’s response to the situation in Houston and the entire area did not begin with this.”
With that Olbermann described the tragedy on the ground, he said of Trump, “It has become mind-numbingly clear that the man occupying the office of president of the United States has no human empathy to give, no understanding of tragedy, no concern for the lives of anybody in the nation except those he knows personally.”
