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.”

Onlookers were shocked that Erdo?an did this in front of the president and multiple Republican senators.

From the White House, Erdogan is ranting about the Armenian Genocide, saying it didn’t happen and that he wants to set up a “history commission.”

‘The country got an education’: Nicolle Wallace explains why impeachment could move public opinion

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace offered her analysis after the day of televised hearings in the impeachment inquiry.

Wallace, who served as White House communications director under President George W. Bush, drew upon her experience as a top Republican strategist.

"Listen, I haven’t spent a nanosecond in a courtroom, but I’ve spent my career in the court of public opinion. And if you look at what the Democrats have set out to do and you look at why this has swung public opinion in a way the Mueller probe never did is that they have laid brick on top of brick on top of brick," Wallace explained.

Room erupts in laughter as Democrat Peter Welch destroys Jim Jordan during impeachment hearing

Published

on

There was a moment of levity four-hours into the first televised hearing in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the bombastic Freedom Caucus member who was added to the committee at the last moment by Republicans, had argued that the White House whistleblower started the scandal.

"There’s one witness, one witness that they won’t bring in front of us, they won’t bring in front of the American people, and that’s the guy who started it all, the whistleblower," Jordan argued.

Unfortunately for the wrestling coach turned politician, Jordan was followed by Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT).
