Of all Keith Olbermann’s daily reminders of how awful Lefty commentators were in the 2000s, one day every year truly stands out. Unable to control his need for the worst kind of attention, Olbermann decided that the 22nd anniversary of 9/11 was the perfect time to dig up his favorite long-lost pastime, hating President George W. Bush.
For 22 years the man whose negligence and intellectual laziness contributed to it happening, and whose malfeasance turned the tragedy and the mourning into our disaster in Iraq has gotten credit for this.— Keith Olbermann⌚️ (@KeithOlbermann) September 11, 2023
It's mind-boggling and pathetic https://t.co/DpGx8UHWks
It was in response to Jake Wilkins, Comms for @Axios, who shared a special memory of a united America when President George W. Bush threw the first pitch at the Yankees game after 9/11.
I know it's football season right now, but there may never be a greater sports moment than George Bush throwing out the first pitch at Yankees Stadium after 9/11.#WeRemember pic.twitter.com/kNqxwEYiFw— Jake Wilkins (@JakeWilkns) September 11, 2023
As one user commented to Wilkins:
so many forget the importance of this event.— little brown dog (@Dualchgwp) September 11, 2023
Yes it was JUST a baseball game
But it was the first event after 9/11 in NY. The game showed the world, Don't Mess with us- you can't stop us.
Seeing a fellow Lefty take a moment to put politics aside and remember the brief moment when all Americans united together over our shared tragedy, however, was just too much. He had to correct such a horrendous error!
On a day that represents so much emotion, pain, and a longing for a united country, people just were not having it from Keith.
This tweet says so much about you. For one, it shows how out of touch you are with your political opposition to think that we'd run to the defense of George W. freaking Bush. And the irreverence you've displayed on such a tragic day for Americans because you think the wrong…— Amie Whatserface (@AmieWohrer) September 11, 2023
Bathtub boy using 9/11 for a political attack.— RGallegos (@gallegosr) September 11, 2023
Stay classy Keith!

Also, an important reminder of history.
Dude was in office for less than 9 months. Nearly every step of the planning and staging were done under Clinton, and under a system that had tons of blind spots that were in place before Bush got there.— ColdCathodeMan (@ColdCathodeMan) September 11, 2023
Who let Bin Laden slide after the '93 attack again?
Although the Left seems to enjoy nothing more than taking culturally significant moments and turning them into personal political rants, seeing one of their own at least attempting to share positivity was certainly a moment of hope. Sadly, Olbermann just couldn’t DEAL. We must hate each other, and always remember why it’s so important to keep hating each other! RAR!
Still, despite many of his fellow Lefties joining in on the hate, lots of people chose to remember the good.
So agree. He effortlessly throws it right across home plate. Proud moment🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸— Beth Estes, #DeSantis2024, #DumpTrump #MuteTPUSA (@bethestesfitnes) September 11, 2023
Such a sweet extremely sweet moment in what and always will be such a tragic time and day on 9/11 i will never understand why that day happened why soo many innocent people tragically lost their lives and just why it came to that sadly i don't nor will i— Joe,s true self (@JosephS69861612) September 11, 2023
He was far from a perfect president, particularly in his second term, but he rose to the task at 9/11 and I am so very grateful we had strong leadership with him. He brought such comfort at a difficult time.— leslied114 (@leslied114) September 11, 2023
I have no love fur this man, but this was an incredible moment, among many incredible moments in the days that followed.— Miam 🟧 (@makeitamystery) September 11, 2023
Keep hating Keith!
