S.E. Cupp To “D-ck” Olbermann: Sorry Your TV Career “Has Just Been Aborted”
10:15 am, April 3rd | by Laura Donovan
If you’ve ever wanted to see someone who hurt you get a dose of his/her own medicine, you know it’s not all that rewarding when Karma catches up with the person. That appears to be the mentality of conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, who refused to “gloat” over the fact the left-leaning television personality Keith Olbermann has just been let go from CurrentTV.
During an appearance on “Real News,” Cupp gave her two cents on Olbermann’s second firing in a year and alluded to their fairly recent spat in which he tweeted that she is very much “a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does,” causing many to believe he meant she should have been aborted.
“I know this happened back in the Jurassic period, three days ago, but we haven’t had a show since Keith Olbermann was summarily fired by CurrentTV for breach of contract for what I assume is not going to work and being a huge dick. I’d just like to deliver my own very short special commentary. As someone who has been the target of his particular brand of scathing intellectual analysis, you might expect me to gloat at this news, gloat at the fact that there are no networks left for you, Mr. Olbermann to broadcast your…misogyny from, but I take no pleasure. I am not gloating. I take no pleasure in the news of your failed CurrentTV show, which looked like it was broadcast from someone’s basement. I don’t know where left to go after a basement, a bathroom stall maybe?”
Cupp went on to say that she was neither “giddy” nor “gleeful” over his departure because she only has pity for Olbermann.
“If I only make one one hundredth of the money that you have over the course of your long career, Mr. Olbermann, I will still pity you for having had to spend the bulk of yorr immense brain power ranking people on their worseness. You once suggested that my parents never should have had me. I am very sorry that your television career has just been aborted.”
Olbermann is going to need some aloe for that burn, but he’ll have to buy it himself, as diva-like behavior apparently doesn’t fly with any network regardless of name recognition.
