Left-wing provocateur Keith Olbermann really stepped into it on Saturday morning.
The former MSNBC and Current TV host reacted to a tweet from Senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway. Conway’s tweet was in response to Turning Point USA Founder Charlie Kirk, who said, “The way the media is reacting you would think Don JR had a foundation that illegally took millions of dollars in exchange for favors.”
Conway tweeted back — taking a shot at the Clinton Foundation:
That would be something.
Especially if some of those countries repress girls & women. https://t.co/E7LtKjfwuH

Olbermann couldn’t help himself, so he butted in. Then he fired off a tweet that got the attention of President Donald Trump’s son, Eric:

Eric, who isn’t as outspoken as his brother Don Jr., spoke up. And Eric took a swing at Olbermann for the knockout:
You mean the $16.3 million dollars I have raised for dying children (before the age of 33) at a 12% expense ratio. What good have you done? https://t.co/g5fTWLY6OY

Olbermann’s response: Radio silence.
