Here’s how Rolling Stone introduced their interview with billionaire liberal Tom Steyer, who is on a tireless (and expensive) campaign to get President Trump impeached from office:
For many progressives, it’s obvious that President Trump deserves to be impeached. From his campaign’s collaboration with Russia to his admitted obstruction of justice in firing James Comey to his profiting from the office of the presidency to his ceaseless lying and attacks on the free press – the articles of impeachment almost write themselves.
First sentence, we assume is the truth, only because for “many progressives,” the thought of learning anything about the government beyond what can be gleaned from a Huffington Post blog is too much to bear. Second sentence is a cavalcade of leftist lies: No one on Trump’s campaign has been shown to have “collaborated” with Russia, Trump was fully within his constitutional rights to fire Comey (something that liberals were all for only a month earlier), and Trump hardly needs the presidency to help him make money. We can’t say for sure, but we’d imagine that this little public service stint is actually COSTING him a fortune in potential revenue. As for the last bit, if “lying” and complaining about the media were grounds for impeachment, no president in history would have ever made it a full term – certainly not the last guy.
But even with that introduction giving readers a good idea about where both Rolling Stone and Steyer are coming from, this interview really went off the rails.
The magazine began by asking Steyer about some Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who don’t think impeachment is the right move. “She believes,” noted Rolling Stone, “the decision to take impeachment off the table [with Bush] helped Democrats take the House in 2006, and paved the path to Obama and a deeper correction.”
Steyer was not convinced. “I remember 2006,” he said. “What happened is that George W. Bush, he put us in two disastrous wars and we were headed toward the biggest financial disaster since the Great Depression. So if the answer is that we need those three things to happen for a course correction, I’d prefer to move a little quicker. How about that? But I take your point. Maybe we can have, like, a nuclear war and then we get a real course correction.”
So that gives you a nice insight into why Steyer is spending $40 million of his own money to get Trump out of office. He has bought in hook, line, and sinker to the left-wing attacks on this man. We’re sure that he thinks he’s the second coming of Hitler and all that jazz as well. When you bite into this poison apple, there’s usually nothing in the rotten core to give you any alarm.
“We’re trying to do what’s right. And 2006/2008 did not happen because George W. Bush didn’t get impeached, is what I’m saying,” Steyer continued. “I should be a little bit more tempered: I take back that remark about nuclear war. The correction happened because the United States got screwed, and American citizens lost their houses and American citizens lost their lives – and, by the way, there was a terrible climate-related crisis, New Orleans, that the president fumbled. So that course correction was based on the suffering of American citizens.”
In other words, things probably aren’t going to “correct themselves” this time around because…wait for it…the American people AREN’T SUFFERING. In fact, the American people are THRIVING under this president – a president, by the way, who by tearing up the Iran deal and making headway with North Korea has put us on a safer path than either Bush or Obama ever dreamed of. So yeah, now we get why Steyer is so eager for impeachment proceedings to begin.
He’s not worried that Trump will fail spectacularly…he’s worried that he will win bigly.
