Liberal commentator Keith Olbermann listed his Trump Palace condo on the Upper East Side for $3.9 million in April, publicly citing his opposition to the presidential candidate. Even though he took a loss on the sale (it went through for $3.8 million in July, but he bought it for $4.2 million in 2007), he couldn’t hide his relief: “I feel 20 pounds lighter since I left… If they had changed the name of it to something more positive like Ebola Palace I would have happily stayed.”

Now, just a month after Olbermann’s tweet that he was “FREEEEEEEEE!” and “got out with 90% of my money and 100% of my soul!” the 40th floor spread is back on the market for $3.9 million. As LLNYC reports, the buyer was Syrian businessman Albert Nasser, who has very different reasons for unloading the condo.

The two-bedroom corner unit has massive windows with views of Central Park, the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, and the George Washington Bridge. The 30-foot living room opens to one of three terraces. Off the living room is the dining room with a second terrace, and off here is the kitchen. Both bedrooms have private baths and custom closets. The master has the third terrace.

Listing agent Harry Nasser is Albert’s cousin, and he told LLNYC that Albert lives full-time in Israel and intended to use the condo as as a pied à terre. He’s not selling for “political reasons,” but rather to trade in for a place on Central Park.
