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!

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
