Watch Keith Olbermann Risk an Aneurysm as He Furiously Rails Against Trump Over DACA

By Published on .

"Trump's DACA Decision is a Grim Turning Point." That's the rather staid title of the latest episode of GQ's "The Resistance with Keith Olbermann." The one-line description of the video on GQ's YouTube channel—"The opportunists in the GOP who enable these racist moves will face a reckoning"—offers slightly more context, but really, there's nothing that can prepare you for the full force of Olbermann's fury in this latest rant. A sample: "You conservative black pastors and you right-wing Hispanic leaders who still support Trump and these RACISTS today, you will find yourselves the victims of Trump and these racists tomorrow. The mothers kept from the funerals will be yours. The lawns on which the torches will burn will be yours." Olbermann, of course, rose to fame in part because of his passionate "Special Comment" segments on his old MSNBC "Countdown" show, but making waves with an anti-Trump web show circa 2017 is a different sort of challenge. In this episode of "The Resistance," let's just say that Keith Olbermann meets the challenge and then some.
