Besides Donald Trump’s many wars – war on immigrants, war on the media, war on women, war on common decency to name a few – Donald Trump’s war against the intelligence committee has begun. It begun when the president of the United States foolishly decided that the very folks keeping him informed on national security and foreign threats to the United States, those people are the enemy. And from the looks of things, the intelligence committee is winning.

In another clip from Keith Olbermann via GQ, Keith warns that with the election of Donald Trump, a bloodless Russian Coup has begun in America.
Keith Olbermann sat before the camera once again and dug into the United States Constitution, more specifically, Amendment 25, Section 4. Olbermann explains “how to remove Trump as POTUS without really trying.”

No one say it quite like Olbermann.

Keith Olbermann, one of the strongest Progressives ever to work at MSNBC and the man who singlehandedly brought the network back from the obyss, was knocked by Joe Scarborough today, years after Olbermann left the network.
Posing a question to Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin, Joe wanted to know why Fox News dumped their support for Marco Rubio and is now in favor of Donald Trump. In asking his question, Joe sourced a New York Times article claiming that Fox News had “abandoned” Rubio. Joe called this Rubio abandonment “shocking,” because, he “had never seen a candidate treated better by any network, other than MSNBC bowing and scraping to Barack Obama 2008.”
The MSNBC host then went into his Olbermann impersonation.
Mediaite is reporting the possible return of Keith Olbermann to MSNBC, jump starting his “Countdown” program and using the 8pm time slot currently occupied by Chris Hayes. In an exclusive posting, Joe Concha at Mediaite states;
A well-placed source now informs me that a meeting has been set between Olbermann and Lack to discuss his return to the network and his old 8:00 PM slot. This arrangement was something that Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell first wrote about as a rumor in July; when asked for comment, a network executive with knowledge close to the situation tells me, “It is patently untrue.”
Said source indicates the impetus for the conversation is to jumpstart sagging ratings under Hayes, which despite an Emmy win this year has been a consistent drag on the rest of primetime since launching on April Fools Day in 2013. At one point this year in May, the show averaged only 74k in the demo, making it the worst performing MSNBC program at 8:00 PM since 2005. And given Olbermann is now a free agent after leaving ESPN again in July (Note: on good terms if the company’s farewell statement is any indication), he appears to be the only remedy for Lack.
