In his latest video for GQ, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann reacts to President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in the electoral college.
“Our long national nightmare…is starting,” Olbermann says at the top of his program, in which he refers to Trump as Russia’s puppet president.
According to Olbermann, the electoral college failed to do their civic duty and protect the American people from someone like Trump, who he reminds did not receive the majority of American votes.
“He is still a moving, breathing conflict of interest who will likely be guilty of impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors within hours, if not minutes, of his own inauguration,” Olbermann says.
“Resistance means find a Trump supporter everyday and remind them he lost the popular vote.”
“There is also a passive-aggressive, subtler way to make this point clear,” Olbermann said in his Monday transmission. “It is like most of the points that finally defeated the Republicans of the Bush era. Those points succeeded not by suddenly knocking down walls, but instead by eroding them as would a river. Not using one word can be just as forceful as perpetually using another. Never address Trump as President. He is Trump. Just Trump. Never president. The title of President, that we must protect for a happier and more honest time. Resistance means refusal. Resist! Peace.” Olbermann said.
