Keith Olbermann on Thursday slammed President Trump for hosting the “trailer park trash trio” of Sarah Palin, Kid Rock and Ted Nugent at the White House.
Olbermann, who currently hosts a political web series for GQ but is best known for his work on ESPN and MSNBC, made the remark in a post on Twitter.
Honest to God, had the painting fallen off the wall and hit this Trailer Park Trash trio, the national IQ would've gone up 25 points pic.twitter.com/XIMuEzXpNm— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) April 20, 2017
Palin, a former GOP vice presidential nominee; and musicians Kid Rock and Nugent were photographed with Trump late Wednesday in the Oval Office.
Nugent’s wife, Shemane Deziel; and Audrey Berry, Kid Rock’s financee, also appeared in one of the photos taken at the White House.
The trio additionally posed in front of a portrait of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonPennsylvania GOP authorizes subpoenas in election probe We must mount an all-country response to help our Afghan allies Biden nominates ex-State Department official as Export-Import Bank leader MORE in another image.
Palin vocally supported Trump’s White House run last year, even attending his final debate with Clinton as a guest last October.
Nugent said Thursday that he and Trump discussed how “political correctness has wrecked everything it has touched” during their dinner the night before.
The rock star praised Trump for fighting “power abusing bureaucrats” on issues like hunting regulations.
“When his administration’s battlecry [sic] is ‘America first,’ you know we are on the right track after a long and embarrassing disconnect by the political posers who forgot they worked for us instead of vice versa,” he wrote in a blog for “Deer & Deer Hunting.”
Nugent and Kid Rock each backed Trump over Clinton before Election Day last year.
Trump repeatedly assailed political correctness and federal environmental rules on the campaign trail.
