A perplexed Keith Olbermann reacted to Donald Trump’s wide-ranging and highly contentious press conference on Thursday, asking the president the most pertinent question that comes to mind: “Are you high?”
Olbermann noted the Department of Education’s absurd misspelling of W.E.B. Du Bois’s name—and subsequent misspelling in the department’s apology for the original misspelling—repeating, “are these people high, or what?”
The GQ correspondent then pointed to Trump and the GOP’s posting of a misattributed Abraham Lincoln quote, again repeating, “are these people high, or what?”
Referencing the Trump administration’s latest voter fraud lie about buses of people voting illegally in New Hampshire, costing the president that state, Olbermann once again asked, “are these people high, or what?”
Displaying a poll that shows 51 percent of Trump voters think the president should be able to overturn decisions by judges that he disagrees with, Olbermann pointed out, “A democracy in which the president can overturn the rulings of judges is not a democracy, it is a dictatorship.”
“Are these people high, or what?” Olbermann asked.

‘Not going to do their dirty work’: Kellyanne Conway snarls when asked about White House stonewalling Congress
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday brushed aside questions of why the Trump White House was refusing to send legal representation to House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings.
As reported by CBS News' Mark Knoller, Conway was asked by reporters about whether it was wise for the White House to refuse to participate in Monday's hearings, as they could provide an opportunity for President Donald Trump's attorneys to provide exculpatory evidence.
Conway, however, said it was "not a tough decision" about whether to participate because the White House didn't want to be seen "colluding with an illegitimate process."
‘Trump is innocent’: InfoWars host booted from impeachment hearing after shouting about ‘treason’
A man interrupted Monday's impeachment hearing moments after House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler gaveled it into session.
The man, identified as InfoWars host Owen Shroyer, was led out of the room immediately by Capitol police, shouting that Nadler and House Democrats were committing treason by conducting the constitutional process.
"Donald Trump is innocent," he yelled as the hearing began, and Capitol police quickly apprehended him.
"We voted for Donald Trump," Shroyer shouted as he was led away, "and they're simply removing him because they don't like him. We're sick of you impeachment saga, we're sick of Democrat treason."
‘Marriage Story’ tops Golden Globes nominations with six
"Marriage Story," Netflix's heart-wrenching divorce saga, topped the Golden Globe nominations Monday with six nods including best drama, kicking off the race for the Oscars.
"The Irishman," Martin Scorsese's three-and-a-half-hour gangster epic, and "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," Quentin Tarantino's nostalgic love letter to 1960s Tinseltown, were hot on its heels with five each.
The nominations traditionally see the stars and movies destined for awards success start to break away from the competition -- the Globes are seen as a key bellwether for February's Academy Awards.
