Donald Trump has been expressing his departure from reality since he hit the campaign trail announcing his presidency by referring to unauthorized Mexican immigrants to the U.S as rapists and murders. Some, he believes, may be good people. Now Keith Olbermann, formerly of MSNBC and now a correspondent for GQ Magazine’s “The Resistance”, is setting the record straight and dishing up a healthy serving of reality for The Donald.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re sending people that (sic) have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” – Trump
Keith Olbermann had a lot to say concerning Trump’s vacation from the real world. Like those lines that Trump falsely claimed were 6 blocks long to see him speak at CPAC. You buy tickets to CPAC, it isn’t a stand-in-line kind of event.
“There are lines that go back six blocks. I tell you that because you won’t read about it,” Trump pontificated to his wide-eyed sycophantic base at the Conservative Political Action Conference. And he was almost correct. The only reason anyone read about a 6 block line of people coming to see the Liar in Chief speak, is because news organizations fact-checked the claim and found it wanting.

“[Trump’s] own house is such a sieve.” – Keith Olbermann
Trump has been crying over the leaks coming out of his administration and calling any organization that reports on them “fake news”. Trump proved yet another disconnect from reality when CNN’s Jim Acosta confronted the billionaire despot at Trump’s ill-fated rambling he referred to as a press conference.
“…Just something that Jonathan Karl was asking you about. You said that the leaks are real but the news is fake. I guess I don’t understand. It seems that there’s a disconnect there. If the information coming from those leaks is real, then how can the stories be fake?” – Acosta
“The reporting is fake.” – Trump
So the leaks are real but the reports detailing the leaks are fake. Trump needs to add one more book to his repertoire of reading material that as of now is limited to The Art of the Deal and one-page intelligence briefings with pictures. American News X would like to suggest perhaps the addition of Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. Maybe then he would realize that his lies to the American public and his obfuscation of the truth are the only “fake news” reports being received by the nation daily on such a massive scale.
This isn’t just an assault on the principles of American democracy but on the truth itself.
Watch Keith Olbermann deliver a reality check to Trump that only he can below and let us know what you think in the comments. Resist.
