Former ESPN, Fox Sports, MSNBC, and Current TV host Keith Olbermann attacked President Donald Trump on Tuesday for firing FBI Director James Comey, a move that Olbermann vocally supported in the months before the election.

The GQ web series host was one of many who were outraged by Trump's surprising decision to fire Comey. Olbermann even suggested that Trump would be impeached for the action, tweeting, "You have just impeached yourself."

In another tweet, Olbermann declared that Trump's actions constituted an "act of war" on the United States.

But Olbermann was among the voices who publicly called for Comey's firing last year.

Olbermann has long been a critic of Comey, also calling on him to voluntarily resign during the 2016 election.

It remains unclear why Olbermann finds Comey's firing an impeachable offense when in November he found Comey's position was "no longer tenable."
