Olbermann: ‘Stepford Blond’ Kirsten Powers Is ‘On Fox, She’s Going To Hell’

If you’ve ever appeared on Fox News, you may as well become a Satanic worshipper because you’re destined for Hades, according to former TV show host Keith Olbermann, who said Wednesday night that political commentator Kirsten Powers is a “Stepford blond or brunette” and going to hell for contributing to the network.
The mess started when a Twitter user tweeted at Olbermann, who has a history of making misogynistic remarks, “@KeithOlbermann claiming he doesn’t know who @kirstenpowers10 is. What a moron.” That prompted the former Current host to respond with the wildly sexist comment, “Is she a Stepford blond or a Stepford brunette?” You’d think a grown man would know better than to reduce a woman to her hair color, but that’s not Olbermann’s way.
Ever the tough gal, the Daily Beast columnist fired back with this:
Thankfully, Mediaite writer Tommy Christopher weighed in on the spat as well, rightfully siding with Powers, “@kirstenpowers10 But you’re right about @keitholbermann, classless misogyny.”
Olbermann continued with the nastiness, tweeting, “It really doesn’t matter. She’s on Fox. She’s going to hell RT @janliel RT But you still don’t know who @kirstenpowers10 is, right??”
Thanks, Father Olbermann. Glad you can shed light on who is worthy of heaven and who is doomed for hell.
