Keith Olbermann is back with his piercing commentaries and just in time to counter the evil, hypocrisy, and journalistic dereliction we are living through at this time.
Keith Olbermann stick it to Rudy Giuliani and Tom Brokaw
Watch the entire video here.
Keith Olbermann went on a tear. He slammed Rudy Giuliani for his unconscionable attack on Clinton and questioned Tom Brokaw's journalistic integrity.
Olbermann first points out that Rudy Giuliani is Donald Trump's Hillary Clinton attack dog. But he told a back story that Rudy might want to remember. While running against Hillary Clinton for Senate a few years back, Giuliani had a bought with prostate cancer. Hillary Clinton never questioned his ability to serve. She never brought up the possibility of recurrence.
When he left the race at the same time that he was abandoning his wife, Clinton never attempted to tie his sickness or marital problems as a cover story. Rudy should examine his dignity, his heart, as he at least owed Hillary reciprocity. Olbermann justifiably slammed Giuliani given his lack of class.
And then there is Tom Brokaw. There is no love loss between Tom and Olbermann. Brokaw, according to Olbermann, betrayed him and Chris Matthews by acquiescing to GOP demands to remove them from coverage. It is with that sour taste that Olbermann questioned Brokaw's journalistic fraud in his commentary on Clinton's health care. Knowing nothing, Brokaw made suggestions that she see a neurologist. Of course a few hours later it was revealed that Clinton had pneumonia for a few days.
These are but an example of the latent misogyny Clinton must tolerate. It is clear that there is a double standard. Prostate cancer vs. pneumonia? Where is the health concern over 267-pound obese Donald Trump? Dr. Oz referred to it as slightly overweight. Is that really slightly overweight Dr. Oz?
Olbermann ends with a golden comment.
"Hillary Clinton has been campaigning with pneumonia since at least last Friday," Olbermann said. "And making more sense per minute than Donald Trump has in his entire campaign. How is her health? She is fricking Wonder Woman."
