Keith Olbermann apologizes to George W. Bush – and ‘The View’ gals immediately gasp

Keith Olbermann believes he owes George W. Bush an apology.

In an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday, Olbermann told co-host Meghan McCain that her father, Sen. John McCain, was his “favorite person” in the political arena.

“My favorite person in politics in the 21st century is your father,” the former MSNBC host told McCain.

“In retrospect, based on what we’ve seen over the last two years in this country, I owe him an apology,” Olbermann continued.

“I probably owe George W. Bush an apology,” he said as McCain interjected, “Shut up.”

“And I would happily take a third term of George W. Bush rather than this. That’s how serious I think this is,” Olbermann added, saying he is “stuck with” the Trump administration.

Olbermann heaped names on Bush like war criminal, fascist and liar on many on occasions during his MSNBC days.

His remarks to McCain came after a commercial break which interrupted her question to him about how to find “common ground” when their political worldviews are so opposite.

Olbermann had been defending a recent tweet in which he declared that President Trump and his family “have done more damage to America than [Osama] Bin Laden and ISIS combined.”

“Rhetoric like that is so damaging.” McCain told him.
