Keith Olbermann bids us adieu, because his work here is done – and so is Trump. Olbermann predicted that this national nightmare would end prematurely, and the end is in sight! There are seven different routes Trump’s end could take, and Keith briefly lays out the possibilities. All are valid, but one became more likely over Thanksgiving, when news of a deal between Mueller and Flynn became known. Certainly Mueller isn’t aiming for Trump’s hired goons, he is after the ‘boss.’
Another tantalizing item is Trump’s sudden denial of the Access Hollywood tape. You’ll recall that he admitted to making the tape that Melania dismissed publicly, as ‘boys’ locker room talk.’ Why is Trump trying to wipe this ancient smear from his smutty reputation? Perhaps he fears a revelation from someone who is no longer cowed by non-disclosure agreements – or is it possible he fears Russians with pictures of his fond memories of Moscow?
