Keith Olbermann Overshares On Dating Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, Tells Her To Resign

Published:

“Countdown” podcast host Keith Olbermann said he used thus far Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and urged her to quit her seat Tuesday after she praised her skilled friendship with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Olbermann, formerly of ESPN and MSNBC, fired off several social media posts that called attention to his relationship with Sinema and his belief that she had strayed from her progressive values.

In a Monday tweet that included an article quoting Sinema’s effort to work in concert with McConnell, Olbermann harkened back to his personal time with the Arizona senator.

“After we dated, in 2010-11, Kyrsten was a legit progressive, far to my left,” he wrote. “Now she has embraced the Political Industry™️ where there is just process, not policy, and never people.”

Now she has embraced the Political Industry™️ where there is just process, not policy, and never people.

Olbermann later intensified his argument, again reminding readers that they went out.

“Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona should resign after appearing with Mitch McConnell at a barely-disguised Republican Rally,” Olbermann wrote early Tuesday. He also plugged his podcast, promising to elucidate “the relevance of my nearly 8-year friendship and transient dating relationship along with her.”

Sinema’s office didn’t immediately reply to HuffPost’s request for comment.

Yes, I briefly dated Kyrsten Sinema and we were friends for nearly 8 years and after her delusional performance yesterday, she should resign from the Senate. You can’t campaign with and for Mitch McConnell and get away with it.

Many Democrats have been frustrated by Sinema and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) for his or her reluctance to support the party’s legislative priorities. Sinema further raised eyebrows in her appearance with McConnell by declaring her support for restoring filibuster elements which were weakened.

But Olbermann kept it personal.

Called out by a journalist for “soft launching” the indisputable fact that he dated Sinema after issuing several critical posts mentioning a “friendship,” Olbermann responded: “For a very long time I believed — and held to a preference — that there was no must make the dating part public. The friendship preceded and followed it for a span of seven years; I believed it was sufficient context. Seems it wasn’t.”
