We have heard the Left talk about their desire to impeach President Donald Trump since before he was even elected. A powerful Left-wing figure is coming forward, and the GOP is ready to stand up to them.
Billionaire Tom Steyer is a Democrat who is on a mission. He recently put out a television ad telling viewers that they need to beware of President Trump. According to The Washington Examiner, Steyer’s ad says that the President is a “clear and present danger who is mentally unstable.” On top of everything else, he is pushing Congress to try and impeach President Trump.
The ad wrongly informs the viewers by saying, “He’s brought us to the brink of nuclear war. Obstructed justice at the FBI. And, in direct violation of the Constitution, he’s taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations that report the truth.”
This is not the first time that the President has been attacked by an extraordinarily rich Leftist. However, this is one of the most brazen attacks that he has faced.
The reason these attacks are interesting is the description Steyer used in his ads. Most of what he said can be applied to both former President Barack Obama or Former Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton.
Some of the claims are flat out false. President Trump never brought the United States close to a nuclear war. In fact, if he had been paying attention, Steyer would have noticed that North Korea threatened to nuke us — and the President tried to resolve the issue peacefully.
Steyer also seemed to forget that Clinton was being investigated for her email scandal, and worked with former FBI Director James Comey, who claimed she was not guilty of any crimes before he even formally interviewed her.
The Clinton family has taken money from Russia. Bill took money for speaking obligations, while Hillary funneled donations from Russia to The Clinton Foundation right around the same time the Uranium One deal was finalized.
Steyer has made his intentions perfectly clear, and they are disingenuous, to say the least.
The ad Steyer released concludes, “If this is not a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become?”
Oddly enough, Steyer didn’t seem to have anything to say when former President Obama was running guns down to the Mexican Cartel during Operation Fast and Furious.
It is clear that Steyer is trying to use his money to make a push to get President Trump impeached. Chase Jennings, an RNC spokesperson, put it best: “If Democrats want to appease the far left and their liberal mega-donors by supporting a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with, then have at it.”
He concluded, “Republicans will continue to focus on issues voters actually care about, like growing our economy and cutting taxes for the middle class.” This is thankful, as the constant adversarial nature of the Left does nothing but hinder our progress as a nation. Only when unified can we move forward.
