In a typically unhinged rant on his YouTube program Olbermann vs Trump Thursday evening, unemployable former ESPN anchor Keith Olbermann called for the arrest and removal of President Trump, to be carried out that very evening.
Shortly after Trump announced to the nation that “[w]e think there’ll be a lot of litigation, because we cannot have an election stolen like this,” Olbermann posted a tweet for his video, with the caption, “TRUMP HAS LOST HIS MIND AND MUST BE REMOVED, TONIGHT.”
In the video, Olbermann referred to Trump as “President Karen” (referring to the stereotype of the uptight, white, suburban female scold) and called him a “lame duck president.” The anger management failure Olbermann also referred to a report which claimed that Trump had said he would run again in 2024 if he loses this election:“The coup attempt, we can survive. A mentally incompetent president, we may not. Instead, he will stay, and when he concedes he will simultaneously begin a campaign for 2024.”
Olbermann is a political performance artist, not a serious pundit. His bombastic, frequently profane and hateful verbal spewing is taken seriously by no one, though it could be said he is giving vent to the similarly unhinged fantasies of his few juvenile listeners.
