Keith Olbermann called Sally Yates an “American hero” for her remarks in front of the Senate, and questioned if Trump is either an “idiot or a traitor.”

On his GQ podcast, “The Resistance,” he said that “in the era of Trump [Yates] stands out like a champion.”

“You are the goddamn president of the goddamn United States, and your acting attorney general tells your White House counsel that your national security adviser was ‘compromised’ with respect to the Russians…and you don’t want him to be in a position where the Russians have leverage over him. And you fire the acting attorney general ― not the national security adviser?” Olbermann asked.

“Which are you, an idiot or a traitor?”

“Even if Trump is somehow innocent of everything implied and inferred about collusion with Russia, he is NOT innocent of choosing a Russian stooge, a Russian vessel like Flynn, and defending him to the last,” he continued. “Our country is not safe in the hands of these idiots and Trump and the all of them must go…RESIST. Peace.”
