Ever since Keith Olbermann returned to us all in the form of online, topical political videos posted almost daily, it’s been an unending joy hearing his progressive, quick-witted commentary once again.

Today, that commentary focused on Donald Trump’s flip-flop on whether or not he would respect the outcome of the election in November.

Olbermann said that Trump’s claim that he would support Clinton if she won the election during the first debate was “perhaps his first sane moment.”

And yet,

“Within 96 hours, he had repudiated that act, and in that repudiation was the most craven and cowardly act not just of this election, not just of this campaign, but by any presidential candidate since the civil war – and it was lost in the shuffle.”
