In the first of what he promised would be a daily video, the ex-MSNBC and ESPN commentator wasted no time in lacing into Trump’s mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic. Olbermann titled his series “The Worst Person In The World.”
Olbermann described the president as “a mass murderer,” a “creature” and “the worst terrorist this country has ever faced.” Trump continues downplaying the pandemic ― even after he was hospitalized for three days with COVID-19.
“Earth is now ruled by a virus and America is now ruled by a madman,” Olbermann said in the 15-minute video.
The show recalls Olbermann’s scathing monologues for GQ’s “The Resistance” show he hosted until 2017.
Episodes of the new show will be released on YouTube daily at 5 p.m.
