Leftist Loon Keith Olbermann Slammed for Shameless Pot Shot at Champion Swimmer Riley Gaines


(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) In an apparent attempt to maintain an iota of relevancy, washed-out leftist and disgraced former ESPN talker Keith Olbermann lobbed a gross and wildly inaccurate slur against a world-class athlete and defender of women’s safety in sports.

Olbermann proclaimed on Wednesday that the reason why former collegiate champion swimmer Riley Gaines lost to transgender swimmer “Lia” Thomas was because Gaines “sucked at swimming.”

Olbermann attacked Gaines after she posted a tweet to remind Nebraska voters that radical transgender state legislator Megan Hunt thought that defining a woman was ridiculous. “Can you just address the reality and move past it? You sucked at swimming. That’s why you lost,” the bloated one bloviated.

In addition to the community note that was added to Olbermann’s inane assertion, the online backlash was fast and furious, including a pitch-perfect response from Gaines. “Ah, makes sense now why you got fired from ESPN,” she tweeted.

Gaines has been a champion for legislation that protects female athletes from being forced to compete against biological males passing as trans females. She gained firsthand knowledge of the unfair, and often dangerous, trans invasion of female sports via her competitive encounters with the transgendered Lia Thomas.

Others piled on Olbermann for his egregious attack on women in sports, and his obnoxious slur of Gaines.

“She didn’t lose, you senile old nutjob,” an Ultra Grateful Calvin wrote. “And this? This right here is why the entire world hates you. Everyone.”

Canadian women’s rights activist and writer Meghan Murphy offered her blunt assessment of Olbermann’s warped criticism, writing simply, “You are embarrassing,” while former women’s tennis star Martina Navratilova asked incredulously, Really Keith? You can do better than this, surely. Get past it. Suck??? Wtf?”

Women’s social media app Giggle founder Sall Grover responded with a challenge for Olbermann to tell women’s tennis champion Serena Williams that she also “sucked,” attaching a video of the superstar telling David Letterman that “men’s tennis and women’s tennis are completely different sports” because men “are a lot faster, they serve harder, they hit harder.”
