Self-described #Resistance leader Keith Olbermann is declaring premature victory and ending his role in the fight, announcing on his GQ-sponsored YouTube show “The Resistance” that he is “retiring from political commentary in all media venues.”
He will be sorely missed…
Well, I’m sincere when I say I will miss @KeithOlbermann. He was a gift.

Olbermann, a former MSNBC, ESPN, Fox Sports, and Current TV host, is covering his seemingly premature exit by insisting that the “fight” against Trump has already been won, thus paving the “correct moment” to end his political commentary.
“I am confident now even more so than I have been throughout the last year that this nightmare presidency of Donald John Trump will end prematurely and end soon, and I am thus also confident that this is the correct moment to end this series of commentaries,” said the 58-year-old Olbermann, who previewed his retirement by Tweeting that “Pocahontas” could be the end of the Trump presidency, even though the president has made that reference to Sen Elizabeth Warren multiple times in the past.
NEW VIDEO: After “Pocahontas,” Trump’s an ex-president waiting to happen – imminently. So this will be the last episode of #TheResistanceGQ. If you’re a political account and I unfollow you it ain’t personal. And I recommend everybody follow @ddale8 pic.twitter.com/NzguN6uvL3

After carefully listing several “freight trains” he believes will eventually remove Trump from office, including Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s deal with Michael Flynn, charges of obstruction of justice, and even Trump being removed for being “unfit,” Olbermann listed what he believes will be the final straw, sexual allegations against Trump.
“It’s hard to believe some claimant somewhere does not have tangible evidence against Trump,” Olbermann said.
Comparing Trump’s situation to Nixon 13 months before he resigned, Olbermann said, “This ballgame is also over, and I don’t think it’s gonna last another 13 months, and so this series is over. “This was intended as something temporary,” the former ESPN host said, but “frankly I have not enjoyed one minute of it.
Lest conservatives think he’s being fired because his tired rants are getting old and stale, Olbermann insisted that wasn’t the case.
“No illness. No scandal. No firing. Just I’ve said what I’ve had to say,” said Olbermann. “It was as obvious as I made it seem. I give my work everything I can, so it’s not like I can dial it back.”
Olbermann’s last rant included several parting shots at Trump supporters and their “lawless, unprincipled rebellion” that will have to be dealt with when Trump exits office and exists “as living martyr,” “but at least the bleeding will be stanched.”
“I am retiring from political commentary in all media venues,” he said as he ended the video. “We will have a chance to alter a phrase I heard somewhere, to make American America again. Thank you for all the kind words and all the support. Have fun storming the castle. My work here is done. Matter of fact, so is Trump’s. Resist. Remove. Peace.”
Why the sudden announcement from Keith Olbermann that he is retiring from all political commentary?
Is there a sexual harassment bombshell coming?
