Keith Olbermann made a case for Donald Trump’s impeachment on Monday’s episode “The Resistance” by doing something quite strange.
Olbermann shared a monologue written by Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, a well-known Trump supporter.
“I did not write what follows, but it is perfect, so I will read it as it was written,” Olbermann began, promising backstory later.
“We cannot have a country run by a president subject to ongoing criminal investigations, potential indictments and never-ending hearings,” he began. “We cannot have a president under that level of scrutiny that inevitably leads to even more questions and more investigations. And irrespective of what happens to him, whether he’s indicted or even guilty, it doesn’t matter. His guilt is a moot point. He cannot take the Oval Office.”
Olbermann revealed after reading that the monologue was written by Pirro back in November 5, 2016. The Fox News host was trying to make a case on why Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be president.
“It was her final argument for why you could not vote for Hillary Clinton, and must instead vote for Donald Trump,” he continued — and then offered the catch.
“I changed all the ‘she’s’ to ‘he’s,’” he said with a grin. “Ain’t I a stinker?”
