Former sportscaster and current GQ Magazine special correspondent Keith Olbermann makes a suggestion for Donald Trump aide Kellyanne Conway: deport yourself.
On Monday, during an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Conway defended President-elect Trump’s tweets after the Hamilton incident with Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
In response, Olbermann took to Twitter:

During the interview, Cuomo scrutinized Trump’s Twitter habits, saying, “Why take it up? Why take up ‘SNL’? No president does that. Why waste time? Why distract?”
Conway responded, “Why do you care? In other words, who’s to say he can’t do that? Make a comment — spend five minutes sending a tweet, making a comment. This network and other people will always be focused on divisions. How about accepting the election results, Chris, and letting him form a government?
“I think we should all learn from the election that this doesn’t fly with the voters. He is a leader and takes the counsel of many people, and that’s exactly what he’s doing.”
Several liberal celebrities and media pundits indicated that they, and others, would leave the country if Hillary Clinton lost the election. Olbermann appears to be the only one to suggest that the side that won should go.
