Vitriolic Keith Olbermann Demands Fans ‘Never Call Trump President’

-By Warner Todd Huston

You may recall the venom spat by people such as former sports reporter turned liberal ranter Keith Olbermann when people said they’d never call Barack Obama “their” president? Well, now that Donald J. Trump has clinched the Electoral College vote, Olbermann himself is doing exactly what his ilk once criticized by acidly demanding that fans refuse to ever call Trump “Mr. President.”

On the evening of Trump’s Electoral College win, Olbermann jumped to the little seen Youtube channel to which he’s been relegated after being fired by every major cable news network in order to tell viewers that with the Electoral College votes his “long national nightmare” is just starting.

With sound quality reminiscent of the worst sort of college AV studio, Olbermann hyperbolically and incorrectly claimed that the Electoral College had “failed to do its duty as conceived under the Constitution.” He then went on to spit out that Trump is now “puppet-elect” of the United States.

After a long list of vitriol, vituperation, name-calling, and spittle-specked alarmism, Olbermann eventually insisted that fans should never call Trump “President Trump.”

Olbermann instructed his few viewers, “Never address Trump as ‘president.’ He is Trump. Just Trump. Never president. The title of president, that we must protect for a happier and more honest time.”

This is exactly the tactic that liberals decried when some Republicans insisted that Barack Obama was “not their president.”

In 2015, for instance, the website Occupy Democrats called Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) a “traitor” for saying Obama was not his president.

In 2013 Desert News columnist Richard Davis said those saying Obama wasn’t their president was a “partisanship” that was “hurting the nation.”

A report by Vancouver, Washington TV station KATU insisted that a resident who posted a sign that said, “That Kenyan is NOT my president,” was offending his neighbors.

A whole book was published in 2014 saying that calls of “not my president” were examples of the “foreignization” of Barack Obama.

A writer for the Daily Kos insisted the calls of “not my president” were evidence that Republicans were in a “meltdown.”

A column appeared in the Sun-Sentinel in 2009 calling those who say Obama is “not my president” nothing but a group of “ugly Americans.”

And liberals spent years attacking conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh because when Obama was first sent to the White House, Rush said he hoped he failed. Liberals insisted Rush was saying he wanted the nation to fail when in fact Rush was merely saying he hoped Obama’s far left policies all failed.

Needless to say, liberals deemed the “he’s not my president” narrative to be wholly un-American in 2008 and 2012 when Obama was standing for election.

But now that Donald J. Trump is officially president of the United States? Well, suddenly liberals are all about declaring that Trump is “not my president.”
