With those Harvey Weinstein dollars gone and fundraising at an all-time low, mega-donor Tom Steyer sees that he has virtual control of the Democratic Party. The eco-bitch billionaire, who is the single biggest donor to the democrats is threatening to cut them off if they don’t pledge to impeach President Trump. Liberals don’t understand much, but they do know that they need shitloads of money to continue being wrong about everything, so it’s a given that they will heed Steyer’s threat.
The New York Times brought this asinine news:
One of the Democratic Party’s most prominent financial backers is demanding that lawmakers and candidates on the left support removing President Trump from office, putting pressure on Democrats to make Mr. Trump’s ouster a defining issue in the 2018 midterm elections.
Tom Steyer, a billionaire California investor who spent more than $91 million supporting Democrats in the 2016 elections, issued the demand to his party in a letter on Wednesday. In his message, Mr. Steyer described Mr. Trump as a “clear and present danger to the republic” and called on Democrats to pledge that they would seek to remove him from office if they take control of Congress next year.
Well there’s the easy out for democrats. They have to pledge to impeach Trump if they retake the House and the Senate? Even democrats don’t think that’s something that is going to happen and they are people who live in a fantasy world. Their party is so fractured and continues under the leadership of proven failures like Nancy Pelosi. They also can’t seem to make voters buy into their whacko message of higher taxes, less jobs, and less freedom. Go figure.
Just for fun, let’s pretend that the democrats do take control of Congress in 2018 and have the ability to impeach Trump and remove him from office. There’s still the problem that they don’t have any reason to impeach Trump. He hasn’t committed anything close to a crime that would justify it. Many democrats want to get rid of the President because they hate him, but those aren’t grounds for impeachment.
In this liberal fantasy the democrat-controlled House would bring Trump up on charges of “we don’t like him” and then the Senate would convict of of “Well, he’s a dick.” That’s not how shit works in the real world. If the democrats did have the power and were to do this, it would be the last thing the party would ever do. A move this crazy would literally destroy the Democratic Party because no person who even kind of believes in democracy would ever trust them again.
While we are on the subject, Steyer says that Trump is a, “clear and present danger to the republic.” How would he describe blackmailing Congress into impeaching the freely-elected President of the United States for no other reason than he disagrees with him? That is a threat to the republic and a direct attack on our democracy.
Also, let’s look at the fact that a billionaire is trying to shape the policy agenda of the United States Congress through threats and bribery. Aren’t the democrats the ones who are always screaming that we need to get big money out of politics? I guess like everything else, the democrats are full of shit. They will take Steyer’s money and do his bidding while flipping off all of the people who put them in office in the first place.
