Olbermann retires, ends run at GQ
NEW YORK (AP) — Keith Olbermann says he is so certain President Donald Trump will be impeached or resign that he is “retiring from political commentary in all media venues.”
Olbermann has starred in a series of online video commentaries about the Trump presidency for GQ Magazine titled “The Resistance.” Olbermann said the episode released Monday would be his final one. He says the series was intended to be a temporary two-month project.
Olbermann says he has said everything he has to say on Trump and would like to enjoy some of his life again. He adds that there is “no illness, no scandal, no firing” to blame for his departure.

Monica Lewinsky slams HLN special
NEW YORK (AP) — Monica Lewinsky isn’t too pleased with the title of an upcoming TV special about her affair with President Bill Clinton that led to his impeachment.
Lewinsky tweeted a screenshot of a headline about an HLN special, “The Monica Lewinsky Scandal.” She crossed out the title and suggested replacing it with “The Starr Investigation” or “The Clinton Impeachment.” She quipped in the tweet: “fixed it for you. you’re welcome.”
The special is part of HLN’s true crime series “How It Really Happened.” The show’s website lists the title of Sunday’s episode as “The Clinton-Lewinsky Scandal.”
Clinton initially denied the affair before admitting to it in 1998.
“The Starr Investigation” is a reference to Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel whose investigation led to Clinton’s impeachment trial.
Clinton was acquitted by Congress.
