Keith Olbermann: Bin Laden Did Less To Hurt America Than Trump [VIDEO]
GQ’s Keith Olbermann said on ‘The View’ Friday that he truly believes President Donald Trump is more harmful to America than Osama Bin Laden.
“You said recently via tweet that, ‘Trump and his family have done more harm to America than ISIS and Bin Laden combined,” cohost Sunny Hostin said as the audience clapped. “Do you believe that?”
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

“Yes,” Olbermann replied. “Yeah, we did really well after 9/11, I don’t think the country has given itself enough credit for what we did not do after 9/11… we did not restrict all of the freedoms in this country, we did not single out people.”
Conservative cohost Meghan McCain was clearly disturbed by Olbermann’s comments, and chimed in, “A thousand people died on 9/11, I mean the comparison is absurd.”
“You think that Bin Laden did less to damage America than President Trump?” she asked, unable to believe what she was hearing.
“Yes,” he said again.
McCain tried to explain that Bin Laden was “dedicated to the destruction of everything we hold dear,” and Hostin argued that some people feel that way about Trump.
