Since his return to commentary on the GQ web series “The Closer,” Keith Olbermann has focused on exposing Donald Trump.
Olbermann put his barbed tongue into overdrive on Monday with a commentary posted just hours before the first presidential debate. It’s titled “74 Terrible Things Donald Trump Has Done...This Month,” and it follows a Sept. 13 video from Olbermann called “176 Shocking Things Donald Trump Has Done This Election,” in which he called the Republican nominee a “demonic messiah.”
That earlier video was pretty impressive in its scope. But Trump and those in his orbit have produced so much fresh material in the past few weeks that a follow-up was in order, Olbermann said.
In this latest video, Olbermann, formerly of MSNBC, ESPN and elsewhere, reminds viewers that Trump “attacked Hillary Clinton for contracting pneumonia”; that he once described poor people as “morons”; that Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, recently balked at calling the white supremacist David Duke “deplorable”; and that Trump has lied about President Barack Obama not being born in the United States, and then lied about lying, and then lied about his lies about lying.
Think of this as a refresher course in case you want to do your own fact-checking Monday night.
Watch the full video above.
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.
