Trump a Russian Agent? Keith Olbermann's Epic Rant on Trump's Russian Sympathies

'Trump may not be a paid Russian agent, he may be stupid enough or disloyal enough or anti-democracy enough or just evil enough to be doing it for free.'

Former MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann used the latest epsiode of his online GQ segment to dive into the connection between Donald Trump and the Russian government. In the segment Olbermann straight out asks if Trump is a Russian agent and goes through the last year of Trump's comments about Vladimir Putin.  Olbermann mixes in quotes from the film the 'Manchurian Candidate' and while he doesn't fully make the case that Trump is a Russian agent, Olberman offers a harsh indictment of Trump nonetheless:

“Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell said simply, ‘In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr Putin had recruited Mr Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation. There is only one flaw with altering that one line from The Manchurian Candidate to insert it into our script for the Trump-churian Candidate and have it read ‘I think if Donald Trump were a paid Russian agent, he could not do more to harm this country than he is doing now.’ And that flaw is, Trump may not be a paid Russian agent, he may be stupid enough or disloyal enough or anti-democracy enough or just evil enough to be doing it for free.”
