Keith Olbermann: We Can Still Delegitimize Trump By Not Calling Him "President Trump"


In a web video produced by GQ Magazine Keith Olbermann lamented that the Electoral College affirmed the result of the election, that Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States. However, he said the "resistance" can still combat Trump -- by not calling him 'President Trump.' Olbermann also suggested reminding Trump supporters everyday that Trump lost the popular vote.

"Resistance means find a Trump supporter everyday and remind them he lost the popular vote," Olbermann said.

"There is also a passive-aggressive, subtler way to make this point clear," Olbermann said in his Monday transmission. "It is like most of the points that finally defeated the Republicans of the Bush era. Those points succeeded not by suddenly knocking down walls, but instead by eroding them as would a river. Not using one word can be just as forceful as perpetually using another. Never address Trump as President. He is Trump. Just Trump. Never president. The title of President, that we must protect for a happier and more honest time. Resistance means refusal. Resist! Peace."
