Olbermann: Trump hosted ‘trailer park trash’
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.
Palin, Kid Rock and Nugent were pictured with Trump late Wednesday in the Oval Office.
Nugent’s wife, Shemane Deziel, and Audrey Berry, Kid Rock’s finance, also appeared in one of the photos taken at the White House.
The trio additionally posed before a portrait of 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in one 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 rules about the environment that hindered job growth on the campaign trail.
