Keith Olbermann Rips Trump for Being Dumber Than ‘a 10-Year-Old’ (Video)

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

On Wednesday, GQ’s Keith Olbermann lit into Donald Trump’s Muslim ban by pointing out that idiotic moves like these are exactly what terrorists want us to do.



“The United States of America invoking exactly the kind of action that Islamic State always said it would,” Olbermann said. “An intelligent 10-year-old could tell Trump… that the last thing the new Banana Republican government of the United States would want to do if it wanted to prevent radical Islamic terrorism would be to ban Muslims simply because they are Muslims.”

Olbermann added that this was our “greatest possible gift to ISIS.”

And he’s absolutely right.

This is the problem when you have short-sighted morons in charge of situations that require complex critical thinking.

In the mind of Trump and his supporters, they think banning Muslims is going to keep us safe — it won’t. Sure, it’s an illusion of “safety” for those who live in the world where if it sounds right, it must be right, but Trump’s ban simply plays right into the hands of terrorists.

What these ISIS monsters want is a war against the West — a “holy war” between Islam and Christianity. They want to be able to recruit by saying, “See, look at the leader of the United States, banning Muslims, slandering Muslims, vilifying Muslims — that’s the enemy.”

After all, what better way to recruit people to fight for your side than to point out that the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth is publicly vilifying and attacking their religion as “the enemy”? What better way to help barbaric terrorists wage their holy war than by helping them make it into one?

As Olbermann said, a 10-year-old could see that the last thing you’d want to do to prevent terrorism is to ban people simply because they’re Muslim.

But this is the sort of asinine thinking taking place within the Republican Party. These are people who comically believe that you can’t “defeat terrorism” unless you say the words “radical Islamic terrorist.” They’re so ignorant that they somehow think giving the terrorists exactly what they want is weakening them and making us safer.



It’s all ridiculous.

This nation went from being led by a sane, rational, intelligent human being in Barack Obama, to a live-action version of the mentally unstable fools who post the “top comments” on Breitbart.

    I have profited $104k previous year by doing an on-line job at home a­­n­­d I was able to do it by w­orking part-time for 3+ hrs each day. I followed an earning model I came across online and I am so amazed that i was able to make so much extra income. It’s so newbie friendly and I’m so happy that i discovered it.

    ROFLH . . .

    Allen, things must be getting rough for you in Houston.

    First you quote Dan “the forger” Rather, who after being fired from CBS News is now found interviewing has been rock stars on Netflix . . .

    Now, you are quoting Keith “fire me again” Olberman who has been fired not once, but FIVE times from different media employers.

    Yep, this is demonstrating what a paragon of political science you are becoming.

    ROFLH . . .

      Dan Rather is a man who has seen a lot and has honesty and integrity. What does he have to gain by stating nothing but facts? Think about it. He’s speaking for the millions of people who feel like our once great country is about to lose all credibility and go down the toilet. Sounds like you just want to attack Allen, one of the most widely read Liberal leaning men who speaks the truth. You should find s site where everyone will upvote your crap.

        My point on Dan Rather is, that as the “top journalist” while on CBS news, he was fired.

        Why?

        For lying, and actually FORGING documentation. Rather later tried to sue CBS for his firing. The judge tossed Rathers lawsuit out of court.

        So this “supposed” journalist, Dan Rather, gets fired for his dishonest acts, and NEVER GETS EMPLOYED BY ANY OTHER MAJOR NEWS OUTLET, and then Allen starts quoting this guy like he’s all of a sudden some oracle of honesty?

        Give me a break.

        Unfortunately, people make mistakes, even in their jobs. He has paid a price (Dan Rather). However, I have been following his recent tweets, and everything he has said resonates with me. If all of us could never stand up and say what we think, especially in the current environment, we would be one big, silent cauldron of hate and unspoken venom. We are close now. For the most part, I have always had respect for Dan Rather. He at least is not, and never was telling outright lies like you here everywhere on the News now. If people follow him because of his name, so be it.

    “What these ISIS monsters want is a war against the West — a “holy war” between Islam and Christianity.”

    Someone is a little late for the party. Radical Islam, or is it just Islam, has been at war with the west since at least 9/11, and off and on since it conquered Spain and Turkey. Jefferson is said to have read the Koran before deciding to attack Tripoli to know what he was dealing with. That said, most Muslims are nice people who don’t want anything to do with holy wars just like the people who were killed on 9/11.

    G.W. Bush got this country into an insane war because he was neither smart nor principled enough, not to. Bush is far smarter and more principled than Trump. Trump is a dangerous fool, who has surrounded himself with even more dangerous fools. This is not going to end well for anyone but the defense contractors.
