Keith Olbermann doubled down on his ridiculous accusations of treason against the Trump family with a tweet Monday morning. In response to President Trump’s tweet that most politicians would’ve gone to the meeting his son attended Olbermann replied, “Sure! Benedict Arnold would have. And Aaron Burr. And Charles Lindbergh. And Quisling. And Marshal Petain. That's politics! Annnnnd treason!” The initial charges of treason were idiotic enough, but now Donald Trump Jr. equates to the greatest traitor in American history?
Keith Olbermann has recently made public his grievances with media bias on Trump, but don’t get too excited because his nutty argument is that the liberal press is not going far enough in exposing “the worst set of crimes in American history.”
David Letterman has a question for Donald Trump. He wants to ask him, “All right Don. What the fuck happened?” The retired late night talk show host recently spoke with GQ magazine on his past history of interviews with Donald Trump and his current opinion of the President of the United States. Letterman talked to the interviewer about his experience with Donald Trump as a frequent guest on the show, Late Show with David Letterman.

Treating him like a mythic figure, the New York Times magazine on Sunday devoted 3377 words to reminiscing about the “broad shoulders” and “icy blue gaze” of liberal anchor Keith Olbermann. Writer Greg Howard lamented that the cable host, who couldn’t hold jobs at ESPN, MSNBC or even the defunct Current network, isn’t on TV during the Trump years.
You know The Washington Post is a liberal newspaper when the big splashy figure on the front of Friday’s Style section is…Keith Olbermann. The man whose career has now “evolved” into ranting in obscurity for a fashion magazine? Yes.
Political reporter Ben Terris is clearly not thrilled with this assignment. He will clearly wound Keith’s massive ego by proclaiming late in the piece “Some of Olbermann’s commentaries are infused with a frenetic energy akin to the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.”
All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Yesterday, we presented the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons; today’s installment showcases some of this year’s most rancid quotes attacking Republicans or conservatives. Most of the media’s ire this year was aimed at GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump — who, according to some in the media, is either an American version of Hitler, “clinically insane,” or a “raving meth head” — but conservative Senator Ted Cruz and the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia were also targeted.
Yes, it’s GQ. And yes, they don’t stand a metrosexual’s chance at a tractor pull of getting you to care who they think matters or not. Still, the glossy “men’s” magazine’s jokey annual list of the Least Influential People, written by Drew Magary, is instructive.
Just when we thought we'd heard the last from Keith Olbermann, the former MSNBC bomb-thrower has created an online video series for GQ magazine entitled The Resistance, in which the former sportscaster and political commentator is lashing out at President-Elect Donald Trump as “the man who was elected by a minority” whose actions are “not normal.”
The fire-breathing pundit also targeted former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a close confidante of Trump. Olbermann argued there were “avenues” for economic blow back against Trump supporters like Giuliani, who he said has ties to ride-sharing app company Uber.
In a Wednesday piece, GQ writer Drew Magary told Trump supporters, "If you vote for him, you’re not making America great again. You are killing it. You are telling the world that America isn’t worth it. You are telling the world that all of our big talk about freedom and unity and ideals is just a load of shit, and that you would prefer a smoldering dystopia where freedom is just a flimsy cover for evildoing, led by a man who believes that strength is measured only in killing people."
A current MSNBC personality just passed the half-decade mark as a host on the channel. A former MSNBC personality who’s made plenty of comebacks just made another one. The Washington Monthly’s D.R. Tucker praised each man to the skies this past weekend. Tucker called Chris Hayes "the classiest man on cable” and opined that from the get-go, he was brilliant, “an engaging, charismatic host whose mind moved faster than Usain Bolt’s legs." As for Keith Olbermann, now of GQ, Tucker gushed that Olby "recognizes that conservatism…is a metastasizing cancer within the American body, and that if that cancer is left untreated, the American body will be consigned to hospice care."
It's clear that GQ.com isn't at all interested in consistency, and that it doesn't care if it gets caught employing a blatant double standard. Catching them at it was just too easy. In the wake of the latest reported incident involving President Barack Obama's 18 year-old daughter Malia — she has been photographed while playing the drinking game Pong in Maryland, a state where, as in the rest of the country, the legal drinking age is 21 — GQ writer Jay Willis has demanded that the press "Stop Snitching on Malia Obama, Y'All" (an ironic headline given the primary object of his wrath is the UK Daily Mail, where "y'all" is not exactly a commonly heard contraction). In 2005, GQ.com, in what appears to have been a house editorial, was still going after George W. Bush's daughters, while referring back to their 2001 citations for underage drinking.
After literally fitting up President Obama as a candidate for Mt. Rushmore (“Obama was better than we imagined, better than the body politic deserved...”) Jim Nelson, editor-in-chief of men’s fashion magazine GQ (Gentleman’s Quarterly), followed up Friday with some fashionable Hillary hagiography and a side of Trump sexism: “The Trump Campaign Is Fueled by the Fear of a Female President.” Nelson posed the question “why were his followers so drawn to that hot temper and fulminating rage?” and answered it: “...fear of a gynarchy. Rule by women."
