Keith Olbermann Is Retiring Because Trump Impeachment Is ‘Unavoidable’

Sports commentator Keith Olbermann is abandoning “The Resistance,” his political web series for GQ. What’s his rationale? The “seven different inevitable outcomes” for President Donald Trump are so certain that he will absolutely be impeached, so Olbermann no longer needs to keep fighting the resistance fight.

“He has dealt the Trump administration such a severe gut punch that he can now retire from political commentary for good,” Glenn said sarcastically on today’s show.

GLENN: Keith Olbermann has done it. Keith Olbermann has cracked the case. He has righted the ship. He has dealt the Trump administration such a severe gut punch that he can now retire from political commentary, for good.

Here he is. If you didn't know -- if you didn't know, Keith Olbermann actually has a job. He started something with GQ called The Resistance. And here is a piece of the last episode.

KEITH: So now that I think the outcomes that seven different inevitable outcomes are unavoidable, I'd like to go back and enjoy some of my life again, and I'm going to. No illness. No scandal. No firing. Just, I've said what I've had to say. It was as obvious as I made it seem. I give my work everything I can, so it's not like I can dial it back.

And I think even this dim-witted world of American political TV reporting, which is still calculating how to get Trump's idiot supporters to watch their networks and still waiting for Trump to pivot, even it can carry this the rest of the way. So I am retiring from political commentary in all media venues.

GLENN: And the crowd cheers. Apparently, the weight of a seven to ten-minute internet segment for GQ was just too much to carry. He couldn't go on with his life and carry that seven minutes for GQ. I have no idea how he endured such a heavy burden for so long. My God, man. It's been months. How much of a workload can a human body take?

Olbermann and the GQ resistance are apparently declaring victory. This was their version of the George W. Bush "mission accomplished" speech. Whereas Bush delivered his from an aircraft carrier dressed in a flight suit, Olbermann sat pretty in a trendy suit, in front of a perfectly covered GQ backdrop, that I think might have been done possibly by the elevators in the building.

So what's got the resistance so confident that Keith can now retire? Listen.

KEITH: I'm confident now, even more so than I have been throughout the last year, that this nightmare presidency of Donald John Trump will end prematurely and end soon. And I am, thus, also confident that this is the correct moment to end this series.

GLENN: Oh, wow. Now, so what's got him so confident about the president being impeached? Well, is it something -- a new revelation from the Mueller HEP investigation? Sure, he mentions Flynn and Mueller right off the bat. But then he mentions another way Trump could get fired. And then another. And then another one. He goes on to list seven-hare-brained theories ranging anywhere to Russia to obstruction of justice to Pence initiating the 25th Amendment.

So what's the ultimate coup de grâce here? Is it definitely one of the seven possible? Is it one of the above? Or none of the above?

I guess the better question here is what's the real reason for this video? He denies it. But was he actually fired. Maybe Keith is going back to ESPN. I don't know. But like they say on Sports Center or so I'm told, and I think everyone -- you know, I think I can speak for everyone, watch the video. Hey, Olbermann, come on, man!

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
