Keith Olbermann Points Out Trump’s Web of Lies: If They’re ‘Fake News,’ Why are You Checking for Leaks?

Keith Olbermann expressed shock that U.S. President Donald Trump left his “cocoon” to address Congress on Tuesday night where he has many critics.

Olbermann stated,

“Six weeks into his presidency and he has already silenced almost all stimuli coming from outside that cocoon. The evidence that could tell him the truth: that more Americans disapprove of him than any other incoming executive since such polling data has been compiled. That efforts to remove him from office are already coalescing and sharpening. And especially, that much of his own administration has shown signs of turning on him.”

However, Olbermann notes that Trump is simply too fragile to pay attention to the detractors outside of his cocoon. But, on the other hand, his cocoon may be crashing in on him, as many work to undermine him with leaks and other contradictions. Olbermann explained, “Trump cannot hear this. Literally, can not hear this. He needs to be loved, worshiped, obeyed. That’s why there is a cocoon.”

He then continued to describe the many falsehoods in Trump’s statements where he claims that people overwhelmingly support him and explained that those likely came from those close to him lying to him just to keep him happy.

Olbermann also mocked Trump’s hypocrisy in criticizing leaks, when he spent so much time praising or quoting Wikileaks’ Julian Assange on the campaign trail. However, he also took note of the most obvious contradiction:

“It contradicts Trump’s mindless assertion that the news media just makes up stories about him. If they are making stories up about him, why are you checking who is leaking those stories.”
