Keith Olbermann must have graduated from the Hillary Clinton School of Projection and Hypocrisy.
The former MSNBC host, who suffers from a particularly nasty case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, wrapped himself in the American flag for the cover of his new book, “Trump is F*cking Crazy (This is not a joke).”
A sour-looking Olbermann can be sitting on the ground with the flag wrapped around himself.
Old Glory is clearly dragging on the ground.
With the display, the self-proclaimed patriot is violating the U.S. Flag Code at least three times.
According to USflag.org — a flag code site cited by Olbermann himself — “respect for the flag” includes:
- (b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
- (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel…
- (j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume…
It’s dragging on the ground, Olbermann’s wearing it as apparel, and arguably as a (clown) costume.
What makes it all the more ironic is the unhinged former host attacked conservative pundit Tomi Lahren for violating the very same code.

Olbermann disputed the notion that Lahren was patriotic because of her red, white, and blue “Make America Great Again” Halloween costume, seen here:

“Patriotic? Bullshit,” he huffed.
“She’s in violation of the U.S. Flag Code: ‘The flag should never be used as wearing apparel,'” he wrote.
