    Ex-MSNBC host Keith Olbermann drew swift criticism over the weekend when he seemed to express hope former President Donald Trump is assassinated.

    According to Fox News, Olbermann was referring to the Biden-Harris HQ X account flagging a clip of Trump saying he had been persecuted worse than any president in history, including Abraham Lincoln.

    “Trump says he has been treated worse than Abraham Lincoln, who was assassinated,” the Biden campaign account posted on Saturday.

    “There’s always the hope,” Olbermann wrote, linking to the post.


    One account that responded to Olbermann’s post suggested the commentator’s account should be “permanently suspended” for appearing to endorse someone killing Trump, the presumptive nominee for the 2024 Republican nomination. Trump is trying to become only the second president since Grover Cleveland to win another White House term after losing a previous re-election bid.

    Olbermann is known for his inflammatory leftist comments and has also recently called for the dissolution of the Supreme Court.
