“And now we know exactly what Trump meant by ‘make America great again,'” Keith Olbermann said at the beginning of Monday’s installment of “The Resistance.”

“Make it great for the racists, the white supremacists, the neo-Nazis,” he said. “Make it great for the anti-Semites. Make it great for those entrusted to enforce the law who break the law and persecute Hispanics.”

Referencing Trump’s pardoning of notoriously racist ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio, Olbermann argued that the president is “making America great” for people who are bigots.

Per CNN's Michael Warren, multiple GOP senators said on Wednesday that they were not watching Sondland's testimony, which directly implicated President Donald Trump in a quid-pro-quo scheme with Ukraine.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), for example, said that he "took my kid to school" instead of watching Sondland, while Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said he was busy "chairing my own hearing."
