In March, sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann wrote an "opinion editorial" in the Washington Post stating his plan to move out of his apartment in Trump Palace in New York because of his disagreement to the developer, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Recently, the commentator had listed the condo for $3.9 million.

With the asking price, the roughly 1750-square foot apartment is selling $300,000 cheaper than what Olbermann originally paid for back in 2007. Olbermann reportedly stated that he feels 20 lbs lighter since he moved out in March. Even if he loses money on the sale, he said that it was worth it.

Trump, on the other hand, stated in an email that Olbermann "is just trying to use 'Trump' to get publicity and stay relevant." He also said that the prices of apartments in Trump towers are the highest ever and that prices might go up when people find out that Olbermann is leaving his Trump apartment.

The unit is located on the 40th floor of the building. Trump Palace is a 55-story tower developed in the early 1990s, according to a feature from the NY Curbed. The apartment has views of the Central Park, Empire State Building and George Washington Bridge, according to Town Residential Ginger Shukrun who is in charge of the property listing along with colleague Wendy Jodel. The condo features three balconies and a 71-square foot storage room located in the basement.

Olbermann admitted that it was a great apartment, but he now feels less morally 'icky' since leaving the building. He added that he would never have made the move if it was not a Trump building. He is reportedly living now in Manhattan, but he refused to identify the building.

The Trump Palace, being a full-service building, features a concierge, 24-hour doorman, gym, garage, and outdoor children's play area, according to a feature from CBS Local.
