Olbermann Writes Op-Ed to Declare He’s Moving Out of Trump Building

olbermannRemember Keith Olbermann? Sure, you do. The former MSNBC and ESPN anchor wants to make it known that he has lived in a Donald Trump building for years, but can no longer do so.

In an op-ed for The Washington Post, Olbermann said that he made his decision because of “the degree to which the very name “Trump” has degraded the public discourse and the nation itself.”

He calls the GOP frontrunner a “cartoon character” who engages in “a string of insults the rest of us abandoned in the seventh grade” mixed in with “half-crazed boasts.” And Olbermann’s convinced there are enough “idiots” in the country to maybe elect him.

And while Olbermann mostly enjoyed his time living at the Trump property, he did have one big complaint:

He sent an adjutant over to bluster mightily about the urgency of improvements and who was to blame for the elevators and how there would be consequences, and within weeks Trump’s minions were obediently and diligently installing — a new revolving door at the back of the lobby…

If there is a President Trump and he decides to build this ludicrous wall to prevent the immigration from Mexico that isn’t happening, and he uses that same contractor, it’ll take them about a thousand years to finish it.
