Keith Olbermann’s crazy ass is returning to the airwaves.

He’s going to work for GQ for a bi-weekly web series called The Closer.

“The first piece should be about 16 minutes long,” Olbermann told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s a comment. It’s special. It’s a kind of special comment.”

He appeared to put GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump on warning.

“Bad news, @RealDonaldTrump,” he wrote on Twitter. “My series ‘The Closer’ launches tomorrow for GQ. #PlaytimeOver.”

So all the other reporters covering Trump have just been “playing?”

Reaction is all over the map. Some viewers are saying “Thank you, Jesus.” Others say they are canceling their GQ subscriptions.

Olbermann parted ways with ESPN last year.

Before that, he parted ways with Current TV.

Before that, he parted ways with MSNBC after he was suspended for making donations to three Democratic congressional candidates — a big no-no at the network.

Olbermann is still sparring with reporters who cross him. On Monday morning, he went after The Hill‘s Joe Concha for insisting he was fired from MSNBC. He wrote on Twitter, “C’mon Joe, you know I wasn’t fired by msnbc. I quit. Please fix.”

In his story, Concha wrote, “Olbermann was fired by MSNBC in 2011 after the network learned the provocative progressive commentator had donated money to two Democrats running for Congress.”

Concha relented, telling The Mirror, “Error on my part. While Keith’s career came to a shocking and abrupt end at MSNBC, the exact wording by the network at the time was “MSNBC and Keith Olbermann have ended their contract.”

In other words, more of a sudden breakup. His story has been updated and corrected.

Even so, Olbermann has blocked Concha on Twitter.

Before MSNBC, Olbermann was a sportswriter for a few decades, working for CNN, ESPN and Fox Sports.

The Mirror first read news of Olbermann’s return in Politico‘s media newsletter by Joe Pompeo. Reacting to his return to media life has been swirling all morning.

Look for him Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. on

He even has a new avatar.

Perhaps one of his guests could be ex-girlfriend and NBC campaign reporter Katy Tur?
