For some reason, those who used to be treated as important shapers of public opinion when their television shows were experiencing ratings booms have been taking the election of President Donald Trump particularly hard.
One perfect example is the formerly indispensable MSNBC talk show kingpin Keith Olbermann. The host’s deranged on-air diatribes during the Bush presidency when he ridiculously stole legendary CBS newsman Edward Murrow’s trademark “good night and good luck” made Olbermann into a star.
But there was always his history that he was an unlikable, arrogant and often unstable prick who his bosses and co-workers hated that eventually proved to be his undoing as the Democrat propaganda network moved into the Obama years and a new demographic that wasn’t a white male, it was the dawn of the new age of leftist identity politics.
Olbermann was ousted from MSNBC who found that conspiracy-mongering, ferret-faced lesbian Rachel Maddow better represented the new left and in the process, rid themselves of a prickly character whose ego and ideology knew no bounds.
Flash forward several years and Maddow is raking in the millions at MSNBC while the pathetic Olbermann – his hair turning white like a mental patient – has been relegated to an increasingly lunatic fringe online circus show at G.Q. He has become the equivalent of the guy outside of the geek tent at the carny pitching the feces eating contest which he also is the star of.
Well, now Olbermann has taken it to yet another level. No longer content to damn the legitimately elected President of the United States, the sad remnants of what used to be a halfway competent sports announcer continues to abandon rational language for the profanity that so becomes the modern left.
The ghetto slang of “JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!” has now replaced Edward R. Murrow and you now have to begin to wonder whether G.Q. is getting ready to pull the plug on a man who seems to be on the way to a complete mental breakdown.
Here is Olbermann’s latest meltdown:
Jesus Fucking Christ, MSNBC, Trump's escalating it because he's fucking crazy and your boss Andy Lack won't let you call him that. https://t.co/ES67BLvMyH

While this humble author is not a big fan of Olbermann (truthfully, I hate his fucking guts) I do remember a day when he was at least rational and not the bitter, demented old wretch that he has become today and even though I dislike the guy, as a compassionate human being I worry about his health.
Hopefully, someone at G.Q. will feel similarly because the latest conspiracy theory that the left has seized upon – that Trump will call off the 2020 election – could actually drive him to suck lovingly upon the barrel of a high-powered firearm and actually blow his brains out during his ‘The Resistance’ internet show and like most loons, he may not be content to go down alone..

PLEASE G.Q., get his guy off the air and into an institution where mental health professionals can calm the demons in his head. You will regret it if you don’t and he loses it in a big way.
