Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann blasted President Trump and his family, saying that they “have done more damage to America than Osama Bin Laden and ISIS combined.”
“You and your family have done more damage to America than Bin Laden + ISIS combined,” Keith Olbermann told President Trump via Twitter on Thursday.
Why do you separate yourself from the terrorists, Dondi? You and your family have done more damage to America than Bin Laden + ISIS combined https://t.co/TaKeIP6RFt

Olbermann, who hosts GQ’s political web show “The Resistance,” was asked about his tweet during an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday:
“You said recently via tweet that Trump and his family have done more damage to America than bin Laden and ISIS combined. Do you believe that?” co-host Sunny Hostin asked.
“Yeah, we did really well after 9/11,” Olbermann replied. “I don’t think that the country has given itself enough credit. We did not restrict all the freedoms in this country. We did not single out people.”
“3,000 people died on 9/11,” co-host Meghan McCain interjected. “The comparison is absurd.”
“But more people died in the Iraq War than died in 9/11,” Olbermann argued. “We didn’t need to be there as a response.”
“You think Bin Laden did less to damage America than President Trump?” asked McCain.
“Yes,” Olbermann said.
