Democrat Billionaire Megadonor Launches Campaign To Impeach "Mentally Unstable" Trump

Democratic megadonor and ‘enlightened plutocrat’ Tom Steyer can no longer sit idly by and watch as President Donald Trump sullies the dignity of the Oval Office by lashing at anybody who criticizes him and issuing Twitter rants directed at enemies both real and perceived.

So he's decided to do something about it by releasing a laughably sanctimonious new video framed as a call to arms for Republican members of Congress to “do what’s right” and “demand that members of Congress take a stand on impeachment" of President Trump.

In the hilarious video, Steyer accuses Trump of being “mentally unstable” while simultaneously alleging that he’s brought the US to the brink of nuclear war to indulge his own ego. Steyer’s litany of distorted accusations - from accepting bribes from foreign governments to deliberately obstructing justice - combined with saccharinely somber background music makes for an obliviously un-self aware attempt at emphasizing the 'gravity' of the situation.

“A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less, yet today people in this Congress know that the president is a clear and present danger armed with nuclear weapons...and they do nothing."

And in what’s perhaps the coup de grace, Steyer bills himself as an “American Citizen” (of course, we can think of a few more appropriate labels, given the context).

Steyer is the founder of investment firm Farallon Capital and the NextGen America environmental political action committee, which opposes the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

While Steyer’s push will likely fall on deaf ears given the Republican majorities in both houses of Congress, impeachment is hardly the biggest threat to Trump’s presidency. As Steve Bannon once reportedly informed a surprised Trump, a clause of the twenty fifth amendment that allows the president’s cabinet to vote to strip the president of his office is much more concerning - particularly given the Republican establishment’s embrace of vice president Mike Pence.

Predictit shows the odds of a Trump impeachment have been relatively stable in recent months at around 30% - though low trading volume raises questions about the validity of this number.

In either case, Steyer has joined a handful of wealthy Americans who are actively campaigning against president Trump. As Russia Today points out, ‘porn king’ Larry Flynt earlier this month offered $10 million for any information that would help to remove Trump, whom he referred to as “a moron” from the White House.

Steyer and Flynt’s denunciations of the Trump administration are indicative of a glaring inconsistency in the so-called resistance’s criticisms of the president: To wit, he is both a calculating and dangerous autocrat, and a doddering incompetent moron.

So which is it?

Bannon got me thinking. Steve Bannon: … twenty fifth amendment that allows the president’s cabinet to vote to strip the president of his office….. I realized that the problem with Trump approach is that he’s making his cabinet sounding and looking stupid. Forget the state department, FEMA, Puerto Rico fiascos. Look at his Chief of Stuff, General Kelly who is already in trouble. Some veterans worry that Kelly’s remarks elevate military-civilian divide The White House chief of staff, a retired four-star general whose son was killed in Afghanistan, defended President Trump by saying the public is unaware of the meaning of sacrifice.   So Bannon’s point has some merit. And he might be proven right.

With Bannon and Trump going after the RINO's this fuck may get some traction. You know all the brain dead Hillary sheep will sign the petition.This guy donated to Hillary's campaign. In the video he says that Trump took money from foreign Countries. I guess the money Hillary took from foreign countries was OK.He claims trump is mentally fucked up and shouldn't have access to Nukes. Hillary on the other hand is about as stable as as a snake and lets not forget that little treasonous Uranium deal. Don't forget, We came, he died, accompanied with laughter. Libs are some really fucked up ass holes.This guy would be great in a commercial  to raise funds for the SPCA

It wasn't HIS money. It belongs to the London Money Trust which gave him the opportunity in the first place. They always take it back in the end, (eg Gates, Rockerfeller, Buffet, etc).

Just ask yourself, if you made a legitimate fortune, would you give it all away to a group of foundations designed to create chaos? Or would you use it to create a dynasty for your family (eg Rothschild)?

Stay tuned...we have a surprise for Mr. Steyer. Lj

...Wind will be sent out of state to benefit regions which have fought to keep wind turbines out of their own states," the commissioners' letter stated.

The newspaper reported that Richard McDonald, president of the anti-wind citizen group Saving Maine and a member of the Moosehead Region Futures Committee, told commissioners that decisions made in Massachusetts are the driving force of the proposed wind projects in Maine.

====
Mr. Steyer knows full damn well that faulty wind turbines caused some of the fires in CA. Maybe he can pay for the damage THERE and keep his fucking big nose out of everyones fucking business where it doesn’t belong in the first place.

Tis a ‘Longroad’ to hell.

BTW, it sounds like he was talking about Hillary in that video!

The Democrat Party is in complete disarray. They have no leader or message they can win elections anymore. And if you cut out all the fraudulent voting from illegal immigrants in California, Trump won the popular vote.I wouldn't be surprised if Hillary runs again in 2020 and since the men of the Democrat Party are weak cucks, she may be the nominee again. Easy win for Trump if this happens.

I don't know about that. Chelsea Clinton's Twitter Feed is apparently saying a lot of things which are getting noticed. Even though she was the Ugly Duckling of the Arkansas Governor's Mansion back in the day, she's bloomed into someone capable. I won't write off the Clinton's completely due to her.
