Morning Briefing: What the Hell is Going On? Something Ain't Right

The fuck is going on?

Keith Olbermann is retiring his political column, saying that it’s no longer necessary because Trump is basically done. He suggested that Mueller’s deal with Michael Flynn spells Trump’s demise. And if not that, then Mueller will get him for obstruction of justice. Or, if not that, then Trump is going to resign. And if not that, then the GOP will impeach him by Spring just to “save their asses.” And if not that, the Dems will impeach him after the midterms. Either way, Olbermann says, Trump is done (this is what I was saying yesterday! And all of our lovely but cynical readers were like, “Fuck off, Rowles.”)

Anyway, because Trump is on his way out, Olbermann is giving up his political videos. “I have not enjoyed one minute of it … I have said what I have to say … so I am retiring from political commentary in all mediums.”


Meanwhile, this happened yesterday:

Huh? Why?

Is that it? Maybe that’s a reason not to attack Trump anymore, but why take down past Trump tweets? And what tweets did he even take down?

Very odd. Add to that this mysterious tweet from Mark Ruffalo, which could be Avengers related, or it could be politically related.


Is this all just coincidence? Is something big coming? Or does someone have something on Joe and Keith? Or is this all fake news? Or is Olbermann so confident of Trump’s demise now that Mueller has flipped Flynn that there really is no reason to continue? Is Scarborough — who spent weeks calling Donald Trump mentally unfit and unstable — feeling that in the spirit of the holidays, he should knock off the personal attacks, never mind the countless personal attacks Trump has made on Scarborough and his wife, Mika Brzezinski. Either way, it did not stop Mika from attacking the President and Sarah Sanders this morning:


I don’t know. I just don’t know. But there is one thing I do know: Donald Trump won’t be invited to the next Royal wedding, and I can’t wait for him to tweet, “I will not be going to the Royal Wedding because Prince Harry is a sad loser and I wouldn’t waste my time on that.”

Also, Doug Jones is not going to win in Alabama.

Ted Cruz endorsed him. Remember that when you go to the polls next year in Texas, folks. Ted Cruz endorsed a child molester. His likely challenger will be Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who did not endorse a child molester.
