Rachel Maddow Reacts to Keith Olbermann Exiting MSNBC
News that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann was exiting Friday evening was shocking, to say the least.
Fellow host Rachel Maddow, who appeared on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, spoke briefly about Olbermann's departure. (Watch video below of Olbermann announcing on Countdown that he and MSNBC have parted ways.)
"Yeah, it's been a big day at MSNBC or at least it's been a big 15 minutes," Maddow stated plainly when Maher told her he found out moments ago that Olbermann was leaving.
When Maher asked what had happened, all Maddow said was that it was "between Keith and the company, it didn't involve any of the rest of us."
"Stop organizing life around the people who don't get the joke," Maher said later when discussing Olbermann's "Worst Person in the World" segment. "F--- them if they don't get a joke."
