OLBERMANN OFF THE DEEP END: Former MSNBC Host Implies 'Always Hope' Trump Will Be Assassinated; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.19.24

Former MSNBC anchor and far-left talking head Keith Olbermann was blasted on X this week for saying there is “always hope” that former President Donald Trump will be assassinated.

From The New York Post:

The former MSNBC host was reacting on X to a video clip reposted by President Biden’s campaign HQ in which the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said Lincoln and Andrew Jackson were treated the worst in their lifetimes — while complaining that “nobody comes close to Trump.”

“Trump says he has been treated worse than Abraham Lincoln, who was assassinated,” the Biden campaign account archly pointed out.

Olbermann responded: “There’s always the hope.”

“Nothing to see here… Just Keith Olbermann openly wishing d*ath upon Trump,” Libs of TikTok wrote.

Many argued that Olbermann should be booted from X for potentially violating the platform’s terms of service, with some tagging owner Elon Musk.

“This account should be permanently suspended,” one critic with 83,000 followers fumed.

Podcaster Dr. Joseph Ford Cotto wrote: “Do you think Keith Olbermann cares that he has basically become a social media clown?”

“At the rate you’re going, you will end up getting a visit from the authorities,” user Viva Frei, who has 590,000 followers, posted.

Olbermann, who went after Trump for his “bloodbath” comments, is now defending his own use of the English language.

I know nobody with an IQ greater than a halibut’s has believed @FoxNews since 1996 but even from their whores this is idiotic The RT clearly shows I’m hoping Trump’s right, that he IS treated worse than Lincoln. As I’ve said for 9 years: THAT HE’S CONVICTED, THEN DIES IN PRISON.”
