Published

on

Keith Olbermann released a “special comment” last night regarding the now-notorious “47 percent” video.

Mother Jones released a video of a Romney campaign fundraiser Monday evening in which Republican Presidential nominee former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) was caught on tape disparaging the nearly half of the country as “victims” who are “dependent on government” at a fundraiser for wealthy donors. Late Monday evening, Romney hastily arranged a press conference attempting to walk back his remarks.

His statements, Romney said, were “off the cuff” and “not elegantly stated.”

Keith Olbermann, former host of “Countdown with Keith Olberman” on MSNBC and Current TV, released a self-produced “Special Comment” last night addressing this new crisis for the Romney campaign.

“Good evening,” begins Olbermann, “Now, as promised, tonight’s special comment on Gov. Romney’s ’47 percent’ tape and the news that this fundraiser was staged by a man who conducts sex parties on Long Island…”

Trump may ‘undo his presidency’ — with Republicans backing impeachment: CNN’s conservative anchor

Published

President Donald Trump's presidency is in peril as Republican lawmakers condemn the administration for green-lighting Turkey's ethnic cleansing of Kurds in northern Syria.

"President Trump this week set fire to the emoluments clause by announcing his own resort would host the G-7 summit. His Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, set fire to his boss’s innocence admitting on camera to the very thing Trump is being investigated for and possibly impeached over," CNN's S.E. Cupp said.
