Never one to hold his silence on matters of importance, Keith Olbermann did not mince words when it was revealed that Donald Trump gave Russian officials Classified Intelligence during their Oval Office meeting last week.
Trump’s own words confirmed the multiple reports that he revealed classified information to the Russians. In his twitter rant, Trump claimed presidential privilege as the reason, saying that as president, he has “absolute right” to give Russia the classified intelligence.
As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”
Trump and his White House Minions were taken aback, yet again, by the universal outrage to his intelligence disclosure. Naturally, they tried to divert blame, saying that instead of focusing on what Trump did, we should all be damning the person who leaked the details of the meeting to the press.
Let’s weigh those options – Trump giving Russia America’s classified intelligence, or getting angry with the person who leaked information about the meeting to the press. I’m grateful to the person who brought this info to light.
Keith Olbermann is grateful to that person too. In defense of that person, Olbermann told Trump exactly what he thinks about him.”
“YOU are the leaker, you stupid, pea-brained, motherfucking traitor,” Olbermann said. “RESIGN.”
YOU are the leaker, you stupid, pea-brained, motherfucking traitor. RESIGN. https://t.co/ZRXevAonG9
