Good News, Everyone! Keith Olbermann Has Finally Found a Way to Come to Terms With “the Stain of Russian Heritage”

New York Ranger — and critic of Vladimir Putin — Artemi Panarin is taking a leave of absence after allegations that he beat up an 18-year-old woman in Latvia surfaced.

More:

The news comes after a Russian newspaper published allegations from Panarin’s former KHL coach, Andrei Nazarov, claiming the winger got into a physical altercation with an 18-year-old woman in Latvia in 2011.

Nazarov’s interview said Panarin “sent her to the floor with several powerful blows,” according to a translation provided to ESPN. Nazarov has previously criticized Panarin’s outspoken beliefs toward Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Panarin, who signed an $81.5 million, seven-year contract with New York in 2019, typically spends his offseasons in Russia and still has family there, including his grandparents. It is rare to see high-profile Russian athletes speak out against Putin [who enjoys a 60% approval rating] or the Russian government, but Panarin has been consistent in his stance.

In a Russian-language interview in 2019, Panarin said that he is frustrated to see economic development stalled and limited to the elite in Moscow.

Knowing how Russia operates, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that these allegations were brought out to punish Panarin for his criticism of Putin and support for opposition leader Alexei Navalny. We can’t say for sure.

But we feel completely confident in saying that Keith Olbermann’s take on the situation is some steaming-hot garbage:

Lots to unpack there. There’s the Russian collusion business, of course.

But how about that “stain of Russian heritage,” huh?

Geez, Keith.

Of course not!
