Commentator who wanted Comey fired blasts Trump

Political commentator Keith Olbermann, who called for FBI director James Comey to be fired in November, has had a change of heart.

Olbermann’s latest video for GQ’s “The Resistance” features the host blasting President Donald Trump, saying he should be impeached for making the decision Olbermann wanted earlier: firing Comey. Apparently, Olbermann wanted Comey to be fired, just not by Trump.

“You cannot fire the man who is investigating you,” Olbermann said. “It is by itself a cover-up.”

On Thursday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” Doc Thompson pointed out Olbermann’s hypocrisy. The commentator not only flip-flopped on whether Comey should be fired, but also continued on a tweetstorm claiming that Comey’s termination was grounds for Trump to be impeached. But Olbermann is jumping the gun by saying that Trump is part of a “cover-up” when we don’t know if the president has done anything wrong, Doc explained.

“It is not an obvious cover-up if it had nothing to do with the investigation,” Doc said. “There has to be intent.”
