Olbermann apologizes to UK: ‘Trump is not of sound mind, we are working to correct the problem’

In the latest segment of GQ’s “The Resistance,” host Keith Olbermann apologized to the United Kingdom for President Donald Trump’s divisive reactions to the recent London terrorist attacks.

“Donald Trump is not of sound mind,” Olbermann began. “We are working to correct the problem as soon as possible.”

He went on to make the main point of his segment: that the unique difficulty of removing a president from office creates the type of job security almost no one else in America enjoys.

“Amid all the he creates — mass confusion, charges of corruption, hints at collusion, there is a stark reality. In almost any other job in this country, assuredly in any other private sector job…Donald Trump would have been fired by now,” Olbermann argued.

He cited the president’s weekend of controversial tweets, including his now-infamous “covfefe” tweet that Trump claims he wrote on purpose and his insistence on calling his executive order a “travel ban” despite Justice Department lawyers arguing the exact opposite in defense of it. Those are but a few examples, Olbermann said, of the many fire-able offences Trump has undertaken in his short tenure as president.

“We all know,” Olbermann said, that Americans have a president “so incompetent” that if he were in any other office, they would have uttered his “hackneyed television catchphrase” of “you’re fired.”

If Pence stepped off the vice presidential aircraft, one of the people he would have seen on the ground was under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for moving more than $100,000 of fentanyl from Massachusetts to New Hampshire," Politico reported.
