First things first. The cartoon drawing of a button-nose child above probably needs some explanation. The subject is Dondi, the protagonist of an eponymously named comic strip that ran from 1955 to 1986. In the strip Dondi was 5-year-old Italian war orphan brought to America by a kindhearted G.I. who found him wandering the streets of his village.
The relevance of all that to this post resides entirely in the fact that it appears to have been intended somehow as an insult to the president in a tweet by liberal bomb-thrower Keith Olbermann. But calling the president “Dondi” is the least of the harsh words Olbermann has for President Trump.
Here’s the tweet:
Why do you separate yourself from the terrorists, Dondi? You and your family have done more damage to America than Bin Laden + ISIS combined https://t.co/TaKeIP6RFt

Last Friday, Olbermann was a guest on “The View,” where he was asked whether he sincerely believes that Trump has been more harmful to America than the named terrorists.
“Yes,” he replied to applause.
Yeah, we did really well after 9/11, I don’t think the country has given itself enough credit for what we did not do after 9/11 … we did not restrict all of the freedoms in this country, we did not single out people.
The episode aired after the most recent terrorist attack on U.S. soil, which was last Tuesday and not far from the scene of the 9/11 attacks. Once again, the “freedoms in this country” were not restricted, and in fact a Halloween parade scheduled for that evening went on as planned. It is interesting that Olbermann chose to ignore that bit of conflicting evidence.
Here’s the video of his shameful performance.
