Keith Olbermann does not hold back on “Countdown” when addressing Pat Robertson’s and Rush Limbaugh’s comments regarding the devastation in Haiti.
In case you haven’t heard, televangelist Pat Robertson has said that the Haitian people have bad things happen to them because they made a pact with the Devil in exchange with getting the French out of their country many years ago.
Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh has been spouting all sorts of ludicrous vitriol regarding President Obama using this tragedy to curry favor with the Black community and also taking him to task for holding a press conference the day after the earthquake but not the day after the failed bombing in Detroit. Limbaugh also has said, “We already donated to Haiti. It’s called the U.S. income tax.” What does that even mean?
Keith Olbermann takes them both to task for their heartless, callous comments regarding this tragedy and ends with, “Mr. Robertson, Mr. Limbaugh, your lives are not worth those of the lowest, meanest, poorest of those victims still lying under the rubble in Haiti tonight … You inspire only stupidity and hatred.”
We wonder what the Republicans who were calling for Harry Reid’s resignation would say about Conservative voice Rush Limbaugh’s comments?
