Keith Olbermann Sparks Outrage After Expressing ‘Hope’ For Trump’s Assassination

Keith Olbermann, a former MSNBC host known for his far-left views and inflammatory rhetoric, recently sparked outrage with a controversial post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

In response to a clip shared by the Biden-Harris campaign account, which highlighted former President Donald Trump’s statement comparing his persecution to that of Abraham Lincoln, Olbermann made a shocking suggestion.

Trump, in the clip, asserted that he had been treated worse than any president in history, including Lincoln, who was tragically assassinated.

The Biden campaign account emphasized this comparison, stating, “Trump says he has been treated worse than Abraham Lincoln, who was assassinated.” Olbermann, linking to the post, disturbingly wrote, “There’s always the hope.”

This thinly veiled reference to the possibility of Trump being assassinated has drawn sharp criticism from conservatives and those who value civil discourse in politics.

Many have called for Olbermann’s permanent suspension from the social media platform, arguing that his comment crosses a line and could be interpreted as an endorsement of violence against the former president.

This incident is not an isolated one for Olbermann, who has a history of making inflammatory statements.
