Keith Olbermann, the host of GQ’s political show The Resistance, has issued – in no uncertain terms – a call for foreign governments to help the United States overthrow President Donald Trump.

“I appeal to the intelligence agencies and the governments of what is left of the free world,” he began, “to them as entities, entireties as bureaucracies making official decisions, and to the individuals who make decisions of conscience.”

“To GCHQ and MI6 in the UK, to the BND in Germany, the DGSE in France, the ASIS in Australia, and even of the GRU in Russia, where they must already be profoundly aware that they have not merely helped put an amoral cynic in power here, but an uncontrollable one, whose madness is genuine and whose usefulness – even to them – is at an end.”

Olbermann continued, “to all of them, and to the world’s journalists, I make this plea: We the citizens of the United States of America are the victims of a coup. We need your leaks, your information, your intelligence, your recordings, your videos, your conscience.”

“The civilian government and the military of the United States are no longer in the hands of the people, nor in the control of any responsible individuals on whom you can rely.”

Olbermann did not appear to be joking in any fashion whatsoever. See the full deranged clip below for yourself.

Olbermann’s rant was not well-received by many people – included those who identified themselves as being against Trump.

As for everyone else…

Even among writers for other liberal outlets, Keith Olbermann has become a laughing stock.

An article by Greg Howard in The New York Times Magazine published on Monday reads, “Keith Olbermann Was Once Cable News’s Liberal Standard-Bearer. Now He’s Missing Its Boom Times.”

“In the weeks after Trump’s election, the humor and levity sprinkled throughout [Olbermann’s previous 2016 election-themed show] ‘The Closer’ vanished as the show narrowed its focus to a single mission: to end Trump’s presidency and see him ‘on a boat headed to the Cayman Islands,'” continues the article.

“The world Olbermann describes on ‘The Resistance’ is different from and even more dystopian than anything I can recognize, and his efforts to chase down Trumpian conspiracies can strain credibility,” continues Howard.

    I remember when I was in an Air Force briefing in South Korea, they strictly warned us about talking “against” Bill Clinton. If they found evidence of anyone doing that we’d be prosecuted for treason. This was the same briefing they threatened us about sending secure info via email. Must be nice to be above the law.

    • CK Dexter Haven

      For real? That’s disturbing but not surprising.

      • Robin Martz

        It makes ME disgusted and angry! He needs to be FIRED at the very LEAST.

    • Robin Martz

      But you were the MILITARY!

      • Mike Hanson

        People don’t lose their freedom of speech because they are in the military.

    • Robin Martz

      Not that I don’t AGREE WITH YOU! I AM OUTRAGED by this communist! Maybe we should pack his bags for him and ship him to RUSSIA. Or better yet Saudi Arabia! Or IRAN. Or anywhere where he’s a nobody with nothing.

  • Mauny Kaseburg

    Sad, sad Olbermann….

    “a brain that doesn’t work properly”- Yup, that’s you Keith! #sicksickKeith

    Dear Keith Olbermann:
    If you don’t like the results of the 21016 US election…please leave! Canada is nice.

    • Jason Mounce

      We don’t want him, send him to Sweden, it’s a great place for Liberals – A Canadian.

    • Bluebirdblue

      Canada doesn’t need any more idiots than it already has, thanks!

      • Mauny Kaseburg

        truer words have never been uttered…lololol

  • Mango

    What a horrible experience it must be to wake up in the morning and realize you’re Keith Olberman.

    • lisacole

      ..and that your cousin is Rachel Maddow.

    treason (noun): the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

    This is exactly what he has done. Not hyperbole.

  • HT

    Keith you don’t represent “we the people”. We the people have spoken and have elected who we want as president. You should be investigated for sedition and possible treason charges. Worthless leftard scumbag that you are, I am not surprised at the level of stupidity and hypocrisy that you exhibit like most of your unhinged comrades.

  • DFresh

    Is this shit bag for real?!

  • Renaissance_nerd

    Sounds like conspiracy to commit treason to me, lock his ass up!!!!

  • Amerigy

    This guy is crazy. He should be arrested for treason.

  • madeuce42

    Treason and subversion Treating with a foreign govt to overthrow the duly ELECTED president HANG THE BASTARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mike Suhor

    Keith Olbermann has been let go from every network he has ever worked for precisely because of this sort of insane rant.

    When you consider that all of them were liberal organizations to the core, one has to wonder why anyone would continue to put him behind an open microphone and give his insanity any sort of audience at all.

  • bill

    Worthless liberal scumbag need to be jail, no that to good for the bastard just shoot him. It treason

  • Verdigo

    Makes you wonder what he doing in private. The secret service needs to take this traitor for a ride.

  • Greg L.

    Sure looks like a crime.
    18 U.S. Code § 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government
    “Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

    Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

    Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—

    Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

    If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

    As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.”

    Simply because no one seems to get prosecuted for this sort of crap doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a crime.

    • Jay Parker

      Obermann isn’t worth the money to prosecute him, he is a non-entity a goofball a batshit crazy 60’s radical that has not grown up…forget about him! Just smile and shake your head when his rantings rise to notice. “that’s our crazy uncle Keith, he thinks socialism is the wave of the future, and that martians have implanted microphones in his fillings”

      • Wearenotademocracy

        It’s worth the money to make an example of him.

  • Victoria Boond Heuman


  • Jim Perrone

    least case scenario this slander………however it is CLEARLY a treasonous act….he must be taken into custody immediately. He is clearly asking foreign entities for help in over throwing our government and threatening our sovereignty.

  • Mike Nicholson

    Hey B.Arnold Olbermann
    Treasonous Fucking LIBERAL SOCIALISTS FASCIST time for you to be arrested triad and hung by your neck till dead for the high CRIMES of TREASON SEDITION and supporting and PROMOTING a over throw OF OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

  • kamenetz

    Get this socialist marxist libturd onto AG Jeff Sessions list of traitors to hunt down…

  • Tontine101

    He should be hung for sedition! What WE need is you gone you dolt!

  • Sruss745

    He is unrealistic. I can’t believe he believes what he is saying, but I guess he does.

  • Margaret

    Olbermann has always been a nut case. But for a national magazine GQ to allow this is as treasonous as Olbermann’s comment.

  • Kenneth Leines

    Is there a leftist liberal on-line store that sells these thick black rimmed glasses? It is a trigger for me and I want to start a website, lead a boycott, riot, march on these glasses, they offend me and my conservative feelings…

    • Margaret


  • Coonass

    Shoot that Co*ksucker between the eyes.

  • Turd Gobbler

    that guy is incredibly brainwashed. He’s the king of baseless doom and gloom. His combination of seriousness, articulation, hypocrisy, and inaccuracy are truly world class. makes Alex Jones look like a chump.

  • Jeffery Rightmire

    Treason and sedition ,both criminal acts against the USA

  • lisacole

    It’s pretty clear to all now that there are some screws loose in that family that spawned both Keith Olbermann AND Rachel Maddow. He just willingly committed treason, sedition and insurrection. Can’t wait to see this fruitloop drown in his own milk.

  • Paul Stuart

    Wow,I can’t believe he wrote that,proof read it and still thought it was ok to say. The left has LOST THEIR FREAKING MINDS.

  • Floyd Clingenpeel

    Just another example of how liberals have lost their minds

    • Bluebirdblue

      More whining, stomping of feet and gnashing of teeth over their well-deserved loss in the Presidential election. What did they THINK would happen with a candidate like Killary???

  • Jay Kalsbeck

    Shoot him. Now. Put him out of everyone’s misery.

  • Eric

    He should be arrested and thrown in jail.

    • Jay Parker

      forced to change his meds…

  • FugNasty

    Why does he sound like ANON unmasked? LOL. Stfu you moron cunt. CIA and FBI needs to investigate this piece of shit. He is mentally ill. He does not speak for the people of the United States of America.

  • Matthew Anthony

    Olberman is calling it treason that the American people elected Trump to dismantle the Liberal’s “shadow government” that was/s the the actual traitors to the American people, threat to the USA, and that do not represent the American people. Olberman you are a Traitor. You should be in prison for this video for the rest of your stinking life.

  • CC

    Why this minuscule brain with a mouth still has a forum is beyond me.

  • Uncle Larry

    Could You Imagine This Self-Involved Ass Administering This Broadside Against A Hillary Or Barack Administration…..He Would Be Found Having Committed “Suicide” By Shooting Himself In The Back Of The Head….TWICE.

  • AnnaGraceS

    Arrest this liberal POS for TREASON!! I can hardly believe he is still around! Booooo

  • Bluebirdblue

    My GAWD. Will the loony left NEVER GIVE UP?? The FBI was already compromised by Killary. Comey’s firing was a step toward FIXING THAT.

  • David Stark

    Not only is this treason, but he is broadcasting to millions, which can lead to riots and other tragedies if like minded people listen to him. He should be taken off the air immediately, and be brought up on charges. This is way out of control.

  • Paul Gugger

    This nut should be in prison! treason! lock him up! Communist bastard!

  • Aaron Burr

    Howard Beal, only without Beal’s endearing qualities!

  • Jay Parker

    Okay, I know many conservatives believe all liberals are nuts/dumb/ evil. But some liberals are somewhat rational, even intelligent (if, they are forgiven their idiocy in economics, human nature, history, philosophy). Many of my friends are liberals and they are quite well read, witty, honest, and certainly very charitable (with other people’s money).
    However, Keith Olbermann is one of the dumbest commentators in broadcasting. He is so dense his thinking bends light waves. America has nothing to worry about this oaf, in fact, we need to encourage the widespread distribution of ” his thinking” to the world.

    Finally, we must use the left’s recently found tactic of attacking conservative broadcast advertisers. Please let GQ know and copy their advertisers that you will boycott their products if they sponsor a person that advocates treasonous overthrow of the US Constitution, by foreign entities.

  • Floyd

    Send Keith old boy over to North Korea Him a chubby Kim ought to get a long real will.
    And when Kim get tired of him will life in prison or death. what ever mood hes in that day.

  • Robin Martz


  • Matthew Turner

    Keith your an idiot, go home, nobodys listening to your dumbazz!

  • Jeff Bankston

    Olbermann is a nazi and just committed treason.

  • Carroll Osteen

    Dear keith , maybe you should go back and take a seventh grade civics class. The president DOES NOT MAKE THE LAWS OF THIS COUNTRY , Congress does ! Except in the case of the last 8 yrs. where we had a dictator that Congress REFUSED to stand up too ! Is that what you want to see again , an out of control fool in the pres. office ?

  • PeterCottontail

    This guy is a joke! Does anyone remember crybaby Obama’s tantrums and firings of people who didn’t agree with him? The hypocrisy is astounding.

  • Carol

    Go somewhere and get someone to pull your head out your ASS! Pres Trump is the best thing to happen to the country we’ve had in years. Shut your trap and join the majority and try to make this country what it was once one people. You are an idiot.


  • What alternate reality universe was this recorded in? It’s from a sci-fi movie, right? KO is such a good actor. He actually looks serious about this.

    Honestly, if this man believes a tenth of what he says, he needs group therapy and medical help.

    FBI, NSA, whoever, please remove this seditious, unhinged US citizen from society and keep him safe in a prison or mental institution of your choice.

  • Rick Clark

    Keith you mispronounced kabal. You are invoking treason. Since you insight treason, maybe you should be tried as a traitor. The right didn’t pull this crap on Obama even when he violated the constitution over 75 times. The left wanted Comey fired until Trump did it. You are an idiot.

  • Jagdish Patel

    What an idiot !!!!! FBI should Hang him nacked in California to teach those leftist some intelligent lessons. THIS IS AN OPEN UNQUESTIONABLE TRESON BY THE MEDIA. WAKE UP AMERICA.!!!!

  • Christopher Wolbert

    Keith Olbermann needs to be arrested immediately! This POS needs to locked up! His bullshit rhetoric and insane blathering needs to stop! WE, the American Patriots have voted him President and WE have his back! GTFO Olbermann!

  • Famespear

    Keith has proven again and again that he is a despicable, contemptible anti-American cuck, but this goes beyond the pale. He should be arrested for sedition immediately! 18 USC 2385.

  • Connie Arnold Del Rio

    im sure they have meds for that …good grief
