Keith Olbermann Predicts Trump's Demise

His political analytical skills are missed.

Keith Olbermann made an appearance on ABC's The View to opine about why he believes Trump will not be the GOP nominee.

PoliticusUSA:

Olbermann said, “Because of the premise of the campaign, I don’t think he has a reasonable chance of being elected. At this point, from what I’m hearing, I don’t even think he’s going to get the nomination. Because I think the Republican Party is going to say, everybody who is in the Republican Party goes if he wins, we all lose our jobs. If he loses, we all lose our jobs. He’s probably not going to win. Let’s make sure he doesn’t lose. We’re going to lose the party to him one way or another. Everybody in the Republican Party, in the establishment, has a self-interest in keeping him away because he could bring down congressional results.”

He also characterized Trump supporters beautifully.

Keith Olbermann also shot down Trump threat of riots if he is denied the nomination, “To be fair, who are the people who are supporting him, generally speaking? What I’m saying is they’re mostly people who can’t really be trusted to find their own homes again once they leave them.”

According to The Hill, Olbermann also called Trump "the most dangerous candidate since the Civil War."

That may even be an understatement.
