On Monday, Keith Olbermann, the man whose face and unhinged commentary defines “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” announced that he’s finished with political commentary on all venues, and declared the end of the Trump administration.

According to the Daily Caller:
The former MSNBC host made the announcement during the final episode of “The Resistance,” a political show sponsored by GQ that airs on Youtube.
“No illness, no scandal, no firing. Just, I’ve said what I’ve had to say. It was as obvious as I made it seem,” said Olbermann.
In the wind-up to his announcement, Olbermann claimed that it is all but inevitable that Trump will either be removed from office or resign from the White House. He asserted that the Republican be impeached over the Russia investigation or forced by Republicans to leave office.
“I’ve made my point…I’d like to go back and enjoy some of my life again,” said Olbermann, who seemed to take credit for what he predicts will be Trump’s downfall.
It’s true that he’s said everything he can say; he even weighed in on such topics as #KoiGate, managing to insult Japan’s prime minister while taking a swing at Trump over some fish food.
The best part is the “all media venues” disclaimer. And that would include … Twitter and the videocast the (sic) looks like it’s shot in his mom’s basement?
Olbermann remained true to form right to the very end, complaining about the time he spent on his show, saying that he has “not enjoyed one minute of it.”
“As, I’m certain, it has also been for you, for me it has been unadulterated pain and revulsion and horror. The process has become nearly 24/7,” he said, adding that he produced the show without pay.
He also took a dig at the so-called mainstream media and what he called the “dim-witted world of American political TV reporting, which is still trying to get dim-witted Trump supporters to watch their network.”
So what’s next? Twitter weighed in:
TRUMP broke you……

Doomsday cult leader?
The Daily Caller also noted that Olbermann has a history of abrupt exits:
In Jan. 2011, he announced his departure from MSNBC during the final episode of his show, “The Countdown with Keith Olbermann.” A few months later he joined Current TV, the network founded by Al Gore.
That gig lasted just over a year. Olbermann was accused by colleagues of failing to show up to work.
In a statement announcing Olbermann’s departure, Gore said that “the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers…are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”
Olbermann, by the way, declared that the U.S. is at war with Russia and called for Trump to be thrown in jail for allegedly being a dictator. He also called Trump a “treacherous Russian whore” and issued a somewhat thinly-veiled threat.
