Donald Trump has been called many things during his presidential campaign, but “demonic messiah in Oompa Loompa’s clothing” is probably a first.
His takedown of Trump will likely leave you nodding in assent and laughing.
Olbermann urged Americans to defend themselves against people who, like Trump, don’t commit “to anything except their own out-of-control minds and the bottomless pits of their egos” and called the Republican nominee “the most dangerous individual ever nominated by a major party for the highest office in this country.”
He was just getting started.
“His base wants few details and fewer facts; they just want to burn it down and blame their failures on the collective ‘other,’” Olbermann continued. “And Donald John Trump is their demonic messiah in Oompa Loompa’s clothing. We must stop him.”
Olbermann then began naming “176 shocking things Donald Trump has done this election.” Ready to count along?
Call it a history lesson ― or a warning.
“This is madness,” Olbermann concluded. “Any questions?”
H/T Raw Story
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
