Keith Olbermann On The View





The other day, Keith Olbermann Talks Trump, DNC Campaign Bombshell, Russia Probe, and much More.


"Whatever was done there didn't work out particularly well for her," Olbermann said of Hillary Clinton and the recent DNC allegations.





"In retrospect, based on what we've seen in the last two years in this country, I owe [Sen. John McCain] an apology, I probably owe George W. Bush an apology, and I would happily take a third term of George Bush rather than this," he said of the current state of politics.

He says, "Attention John McCain, my name is Diddy. You may know me by my government name Sean Combs… "I had to check in with you to tell you that you are bugging the f**k out. I don’t even understand what planet you’re on now. This is your job to be the leader of the free world. No disrespect… but things happen. Like… you got a running mate, I mean, Alaska? Alaska?… I don’t know if there’s any black people in Alaska… Sarah Palin? You really think that we’re gonna let you in the White House with all these crazy decisions that you’re making? You’re bugging. "I’m calling all youth, all colors, all youth voters. November 4th, we have to take our future. The lady (Palin)’s nice, she’s cool, but she’s a heartbeat away from the president… but what in the hell? This one right here is not respectful to our lives… Sarah Palin, that is completely irresponsible. I want you to be down with the whole cabinet, but you ain’t ready to be no vice president!" Palin was unveiled as McCain’s running mate last week, but the appointment has been met with criticism from some people, who claim she has little experience.

JOHN MCCAIN TAKES AIM AT MADONNA

Madonna On Tour


Presidential candidate John McCain is taking aim at Madonna after the singer seemingly used her latest world tour to compare the Republican leader to history’s most notorious dictators.The superstar kicked off her Sweet & Sticky tour in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, and featured McCain in a video segment which accompanied the song Get Stupid. In the footage, watched by thousands of fans, the Republican politician’s image was flashed up alongside scenes of destruction, global warming and starving children. Adolf Hitler and Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe also appeared on-screen. John McCain’s representatives are furious at the singer’s comparisons, stating fans of democratic contender Barack Obama will stop at nothing to smear McCain’s campaign. The Republican’s spokesman Tucker Bounds says, "The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time. "It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow worldwide celebrities refuse to consider any smear or attack off limits." Although Madonna hasn’t publicly backed Obama, she featured the popular politician alongside images of beloved cultural icons, including John Lennon, Gandhi and climate control advocate Al Gore.
