Keith Olbermann Turns the Tables on Cancer Survivor Giuliani's Hillary Health Scare Talk
Keith Olbermann turned his attention toward Donald Trump’s “point man” regarding Hillary Clinton and her health, Rudy Giuliani, on Thursday’s edition of The Closer, pointing out that Giuliani wasn’t the subject of any political attacks after a past bout with prostate cancer.
“Did any of your opponents have the gall to attack you over your own health?” he asked regarding Giuliani’s failed run for the GOP presidential nomination. “Did any of your opponents do that when you were first diagnosed, while you were running for the Senate seat for New York? Who were you running against again? Oh right—Hillary Clinton.”
When Giuliani had to end his 2000 campaign against Clinton because of his illness, Olbermann pointed out, Clinton called him to wish him a speedy recovery, a sharp contrast to the former New York mayor’s insistence that "videos on the internet" cast doubt on the Democratic nominee’s own health.
“For crying out loud, Hillary Clinton has been campaigning with pneumonia since at least last Friday, and making more sense than Donald Trump has in his entire campaign,” said Olbermann. “How’s her health? She’s frickin’ Wonder Woman.”
The former MSNBC host also mocked ex-colleague Tom Brokaw for saying Clinton should “see a neurologist.”
“I think you should go to a mirror and see if you have any journalistic credibility left,” Olbermann said. “It was pneumonia. Bad guess, Tom.”
