It’s been a couple of weeks since Keith Olbermann debuted his new
show podcast, The Resistance. Let’s check in and see how he’s doing, shall we? It’s either that or pick the wings off flies.
Okay, Keith. On your mark… get set… RANT!!!
Gee, how come this guy can’t hang onto a TV gig?
I’d encourage Keith to pace himself for the next four years, but it’s more fun this way. Here he is earlier today, losing his mind over Trump’s dumb “flag-burning” tweet:

Go get ‘im, Keith! And please ignore the fact that back in 2005, Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) sponsored a bill to make burning an American flag a criminal offense. The important difference is that she didn’t tweet about it. That would be insane, because Twitter didn’t even exist yet.
Maybe you doubt Keith’s mental-health bona fides, Dear Reader. Maybe you think he’s projecting. Maybe you imagine that he’s the crazy one. Well, would a crazy person allow himself to be photographed like this?
I think we all know the answer to that one.
I suppose it’s possible that Donald Trump is going to put you in a gulag for burning a flag. Or for being gay, or for wanting an abortion, or for whatever reason you think Trump is going to oppress you. Who knows? Could be.
Or, another possibility — and I realize this is way out there, folks, but just bear with me a sec — another possibility is that Donald Trump just says whatever comes off the top of his head at any given moment, and it doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
Does he really look like a guy with a plan?

Now, will it be good for America to have a president who says pretty much any dumb thing he feels like saying, whenever he sees something on TV that he doesn’t like? It certainly didn’t keep him from getting elected. We’ll just have to see how it works out for him once he moves into the White House. If nothing else, it’ll be entertaining to watch people like Keith Olbermann driving themselves crazy calling Trump insane.
But Trump’s not going to throw you in jail for burning your little flags. Go ahead, dummies. Light ’em up. You’re not hurting anything but your own cause.
Just make sure you don’t burn the flag while Olby is still wrapped in it. I can’t even imagine what that bonfire would smell like…
