“Cowards die many times before their deaths,/ The valiant never taste of death but once” -Julius Caesar
Everyone’s least favorite baseball analyst in bifocals, Keith Olbermann, went on another idiotic Twitter rant rife with political chicanery and twisted logic caused by depleted brain cells after his seventh shot of the COVID vaccine.
This time, he attempted to bad-mouth Barstool Sports and founder Dave Portnoy over the “Trumpist Fascism” they supposedly help promote. Olbermann tried to stick his point by shamelessly piggybacking off a recent high school shooting in which 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley fatally shot four students and seven others at a high school in Michigan.
Olbermann responded to a tweet put out by Barstool, commemorating high schooler Tate Myre who gave his life to protect his fellow students.
“This kid died to stop a school shooter whose mother echoed the Trumpist Fascism of @stoolpresidente and @barstoolsports,” Olbermann tweeted, implying that Crumbley’s mother’s allegedly conservative views were a motive for the shooting.
Portnoy responded to Olbermann’s lunacy: “Dude wtf is wrong with you?”
Never too shy to flash his Dem card to receive brownie points — or a job — from MSNBC, Olbermann remains one of the most insufferable figures in media. There are no depths to which he will not sink, no semblance of human decency that he will not sully.
According to the Fox News report, Crumbley “pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to one count of terrorism causing death, four counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to murder, and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.”
Tate Myre died a valiant hero. Meanwhile, Keith Olbermann the coward lives on.
