Tom Steyer is a billionaire who likes wasting his money on shitty democratic candidates, unpopular ballot initiatives, and a ridiculous effort to have Donald Trump impeached. Considering how bad he is with money, it’s a miracle that he’s as wealthy as he is. One thing is for sure, he certainly doesn’t have good opinions on how others should spend their money. Steyer is up in arms because President Trump’s budget funds the military. No, seriously, this dude thinks it’s wrong for the US government to pay for the US military.
As The Hill reports:
President Trump’s newly proposed budget includes a proposal to end federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), part of a package that includes $300 billion in new spending overall.
CPB provides federal funding for PBS and National Public Radio stations.
That budget also includes an increase of military spending. All of this was too much for Tom Steyer who tweeted:
Got it, Mr. President. https://t.co/BETJkmySOt

Are you catching the attempted sarcasm in that tweet? Steyer thinks he’s totally scoring on Trump by saying the President is willing to fund the military but not PBS and NPR.
Maybe if Steyer was less of an outraged liberal douchebag he’d understand that the federal government is supposed to pay for a military, but has no legal obligation to fund entertainment. There is nothing in the Constitution that even grants the government the power to establish or pay for television and radio stations.
The fact that Steyer thinks it’s a travesty that Trump wants to pay for the military but not some bland entertainment outlets shows what a complete liberal maniac he is. Who exactly does he think funds the US Military? I mean, it’s got “US” right in the name and everything.
Equally perplexing is the idea that he wants Trump to provide funding for the media. As much as he hates the President, you wouldn’t think that he’d want Trump in charge of the desemination of any information.
There is a pretty easy fix to Steyer’s temper tantrum. If he’s worried about PBS and NPR losing funding, he could pick up the slack. He is, after all, a billionaire. He could donate some of his vast fortune to make sure these media outlets that hardly anyone pays attention to can continue to bore people with uninteresting programming.
Steyer blew $10 million on a silly ad campaign to have Trump impeached for non-impeachable reasons. He’s got money to burn. Why not waste it on PBS and NPR? If that doesn’t float Steyer’s boat, maybe he could drop some dough on basic government and civics classes so he can understand the purpose of the US federal government.
I’m actually astounded that Tom Steyer is a billionaire. He looks like Forrest Gump’s dumber cousin, everything he says is profoundly stupid, and he’s worse with money than a crackhead on welfare check day. He is living proof that life isn’t always fair.
