Keith Olbermann was serious about wanting to rid himself of his Trump Palace pad. The sports and politics commentator sold the three-bedroom condominium for $3.8 million – a nearly 10 percent loss, according to public records.

Olbermann’s 1,746-square-foot condo at 200 East 69th Street in Lenox Hill closed at $2,176 per square foot, according to filings. The buyer was listed as Emerita Associated USA.

“Like having a 250-pound Oompa Loompa removed from your side,” Olbermann tweeted earlier this month.

The pundit paid $4.2 million for the 40th-floor condo in 2007, and listed it for $3.9 million in April with Town Residential TRData LogoTINY. Last month, the pad was re-listed at the same price with Compass’ Ginger Shukrun and Wendy Jodel.The condo has three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a 60-square-foot terrace.

Olbermann publicly declared his intention to move from the 58-story tower in a March opinion piece in the Washington Post, followed by declarations that he’d prefer the name “Ebola Palace” to Trump Palace. “I’m getting out because of the degree to which the very name ‘Trump’ has degraded the public discourse and the nation itself,” he wrote.

The GOP presidential candidate responded that Olbermann was trying to use the Trump name to gain publicity.
