Former ESPN host Keith Olbermann said on a YouTube broadcast that President Donald Trump should be removed from office and arrested for refusing to concede the election on Thursday, even though multiple states were still counting mail-in ballots in very close races.
TRUMP HAS LOST HIS MIND AND MUST BE REMOVED, TONIGHT,” Olbermann captioned the video program, which he calls Olbermann vs. Trump. “The coup attempt, we can survive. A mentally incompetent president, we may not. Instead, he will stay, and when he concedes he will simultaneously begin a campaign for 2024.”
Olbermann’s rant came after Trump addressed the nation and said there would be court action to resolve numerous vote irregularities and other issues of contention.
“We think there’s going to be a lot of litigation because we have so much evidence, so much proof, it’s going to end up perhaps at the highest court in the land, you’ll see,” Trump told the nation from the White House. “We think there’ll be a lot of litigation, because we cannot have an election stolen like this.”
Then again, this is the same person who said last month that Trump should get the death penalty for every one of the 220,000 coronavirus deaths that have occurred, so maybe we shouldn’t take what he says all that seriously.
