GQ special correspondent Keith Olbermann announced Monday he’s "retiring from political commentary in all media venues" near the end of the latest episode of "The Resistance" video series.

The outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and former MSNBC host has done 187 episodes, which have logged 500,000 views, according to GQ articles editor Geoffrey Gagnon.

"No illness. No scandal. No firing. Just I've said what I've had to say," Olbermann said. "It was as obvious as I made it seem. I give my work everything I can, so it's not like I can dial it back."

"I am retiring from political commentary in all media venues," he said. "Thank you for all the kind words and all the support. Have fun storming the castle. My work here is done. Matter of fact, so is Trump's."

"I am confident now even more so than I have been throughout the last year that this nightmare presidency of Donald John Trump will end prematurely and end soon, and I am thus also confident that this is the correct moment to end this series of commentaries," Olbermann added.

Olbermann outlined seven routes that he believes Trump's presidency could follow — all of which would either lead to impeachment or resignation, including the expected cooperation of Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn with special counsel Robert Mueller.

He also mentioned previous sexual misconduct allegations against Trump and said he finds it hard to believe "the dam won't break" against him.

"It seems impossible to believe that some claimant somewhere does not have tangible evidence against Trump and that they won't say, ‘To hell with it,' and break one of those nondisclosure agreements and Trump will suddenly be envying Harvey Weinstein," Olbermann said.

In his own tweet, Gagnon praised Olbermann’s work.
