“Need To Impeach” Ad Hits Airwaves: Trump Is Mentally Unstable And Armed With Nuclear Weapons [VIDEO]

The ad below ran many times on CNN yesterday and first appeared Friday on YouTube, where it currently has over 800K views.

TIME Magazine reports:

California billionaire Tom Steyer has released an ad as the centerpiece of a $10 million campaign calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.

“A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less. And today, people in Congress and his own administration know that this President is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons,” Steyer says in the video, which calls on members of Congress to take steps to remove Trump from office.

Lots of people have called for Trump’s impeachment. What makes Steyer’s campaign different? Steyer may be relatively unknown to the public, but he loomed large in the 2016 campaign. He was the single biggest spender in 2016 election, after spending more than $75 million to “mobilize millennials for progressive causes,” CBS reported.

    Needs to run on fox news

    • Tawreos

      They don’t allow truth over there

    • Joseph Miceli

      Needs to run EVERYWHERE!!!
      Sadly, that leaves President Pence, but then I guess being in a concentration camp is better than being in a concentration camp with radiation sickness, too.

    • tristram

      I’m skeptical about the whole endeavor. Steyer spent $75 million in 2016 with no discernible positive impact. And if Trump goes, we get Pence who is possibly saner than Trump, but far to his right and capable of working with Congress to pass legislation and fill court vacancies and administration posts with his Christianist minions.

      • PhallicMetaphor

        Itoo am concerned about President pence who can’t even meet with a woman alone.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        One Monster at a time.

        Besides, he is already there and bigly influential anyway.

        • Nowhereman

          I’m hoping that he goes down with Trump.

  • Christopher
  • bkmn

    Its good but I would have been more direct and stated outright that the GOP is not doing its job and is incapable of doing its job.

  • shantih aum

    Impeachment should be the rallying cry for the Democrats in 2018. But knowing them, they’ll chicken out and go with some kind of “non-offensive” message.

    • Tatonka

      Heed our rallying cry: “Cautiously optimistic about the prospects for bipartisan cooperation in 2018”

      WOOOO! That should electrify the base!

      • Todd20036

        the democrats couldn’t electrify the base with a hair dryer and a bath tub
        and they need to

    • Bj Lincoln

      Why are the Dems we send to DC all wimps?! Why do Dems not get off their ass and vote?! Most of those who have spoken are women and no one listens to them. They are just blown off because they are “female and rule with their emotions.” If there are more Dems than GOP, why are we in the minority in DC?! I refuse to toss my vote to any other party but I am sick of my party sitting on their ass!

      • ChrisInKansas

        No kidding. What do they have to lose? They’re certainly not going to lose any loyal D votes. It’s time to play aggressive.

    • DesertSun59

      They already have a ‘non-offensive’ message. It’s their ‘Better Deal’ campaign. It’s pure milquetoast and will garner exactly ZERO new voters.

  • Michael R

    There’s no number on the site how many have signed .
    It should be on there .

    • JackFknTwist

      That is what I have feared; it is the only way Trump/turd feels he can rally the base behind him.
      God help all those called up to the Armed services.

      • Bunter

        And it’s not even original. All dictators start wars to be able to change the constituency.

        I also have a faint memory that Bannon somewhere said starting a war was the next strategy.

    • Nowhereman

      He is actually one of the stupidest humans on the planet. He is cunning, but he can’t think more than one move ahead.

  • Tawreos

    For the party that caters to the fact-abhorrent voter, this is a goldmine.

  • MassageBear

  • Uncle Mark

    How much do you wanna bet that he gets branded as the next George Soros by the Reich Wing?

    • Stogiebear

      I was just about to ask if we could collect weekly checks from both him and Soros.

      • Boreal

        I’m still waiting for my Soros checks from last year. That deadbeat.

    • DonnaLee

      Larry would make a great President. We would see decriminalization of so many things, and he’s an actual businessman!

  • Do Something Nice

    I don’t find the ad very effective. But of course I support the effort. I don’t think he is the best spokesperson for his effort.

    • Joe in PA

      The ad was great compared to listening to him in an interview. He was on Rachel (maybe somebody else) and it wasn’t great.

  • PickyPony
    • Nowhereman

      And I’m torn. If people are too lazy to vote, they are probably too lazy to pay attention to the issues.

    • JCF

      Many didn’t vote because they were BLOCKED from voting. [There’s evidence it prevented Hillary from winning Wisconsin—where else?]

  • PickyPony
  • geoffalnutt

    It’s all about the money. The GOP won’t do jack until their money is guaranteed and secure. As the nukes fly they can drive to Hell in their Maybachs.

  • Natty Enquirer

    An expensive fool’s errand.

    • The_Wretched

      It’s still politically useful.

  • Bj Lincoln

    I signed it!

  • Rex

    Seriously, will impeachment really happen? I’m just hoping Trump will drown in the swamp he promised to drain.

    • Natty Enquirer

      The Republicans will jettison him in a heartbeat when he becomes more liability than asset, not because they care about “the country.”

      • Helen Damnation™

        We’ve been believing this for almost a year now. If not now, when?

    • Mark Née Fuzz

      He turned the swamp into a cesspool. But if he drowns in the vat of shit, that’d be even better.

  • Barry William Teske

    So Americas democracy is based on which of the richest 1% can dig up the most crap on another.
    How is that working out for everybody?

    • Joe in PA

      See current administration and congress.

  • Boreal
    • Joe in PA


    • DesertSun59

      Actually, it’s even simpler than that:

      1. 45 totally screws something up.
      2. 45 then lies about his screw up.
      3. 45 attacks anyone who calls his screw up out.

  • PickyPony
    • Joe in PA

      Like I said in another thread this AM…I can never tell if that’s a parody account. Did Joe Walsh actually say that?

      • Ragnar Lothbrok


    • OdieDenCO

      honest about lying? does this idiot not see a contradiction in terms here?

      • charemor

        Not surprising considering that it was a Joe Walsh statement.

        • Nowhereman

          He’s especially foul. I try to forget anything that comes out of his mouth just as soon as I can.

    • 2patricius2

      No, Trump lies about his lying. When confronted with his lies, he insists he is telling the truth, and those who confront him are pushing “fake news.”

      • j.martindale

        The unique thing about his lies are how transparent they are. Not only does he lie, but he lies badly.

        • Nowhereman

          He lies about things that are easily disproved. Like his call to Mrs. Johnson. There were at least five people in that car who heard both sides of the conversation because it was on speaker phone.

      • Nowhereman

        Or he will say with a straight face “I never said that” even after you play the audio of him saying it over and over again.

    • Todd20036

      Meanwhile, exactly what did Obama lie about? That you could keep your doctor? That “lie” was actually true 98% of the time.

      Compare that to “my inauguration crowd was the biggest ever” even when confronted with cold hard photos.

      • Bad Tom

        Also, in that case President Obama was merely wrong. He didn’t deliberately lie.

      • Nowhereman

        Obama gave people too much credit. He took it for granted that we were all smart enough to figure out that if the INSURANCE company cancelled your plan then that was on them, not the ACA.

    • The_Wretched

      Ok, I laughed. Total jump the shark / into performance art territory.

    • jerry

      Joe “What back child support?” Walsh.

    • DonnaLee

      I don’t get it, Trump is constantly saying everybody else is lying. When is Trump supposedly saying he’s lying?

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    The people who need to move this forward are likely dirty themselves. Impeachment just might shine a light on their own misdeeds.

    • GayOldLady

      I’m inclined to agree, because I think a good number of elected GOP officials were complicit in taking money from Russian sources. I also think Trump has a lot of opposition research on his cabinet and members of his party and is likely using the tools of his trade, intimidation and fear to keep the wolves away from the doors. Impeachment will be tricky with a GOP House and Senate, but when Mueller steps forward with the goods, they’ll have no choice.

  • joe ho

    Senate Russia probe just blew up.
    Grassley will pursue one investigation to exonerate. Feinstein will pursue another to incriminate.

    All depends on Mueller now. And he might be bought off, too.


    • Boreal

      I have no hope that Mueller will save us. Feinstein needs to go.

      • Joe in PA

        Thems fighting words ’round these parts buster (RE Feinstein). I got beat up a while back for suggesting something like that. 🙂

        But seriously, no hope for Mueller? He is my last shred of hope. Arrrggghhhh.

        • Boreal

          Feinstein props up repigs and gives them credibility. She is long past her expiration date.
          Edit: No, I don’t think whatever Mueller has will bring dump down. He is way beyond Nixonian crimes and yet nothing is done. We’re fucked.

    • Joe in PA

      goddammit, I’m blaming Iowa! Grassley AND Joni? Have you no shame Iowa?

      (I’m teasing my fellow Iowan JMGers…but still)

    • Bad Tom

      Mueller worked in Boston for years. I don’t think hecan be bought.

    • Treant

      I’m working under the assumption that Mueller is bought and paid for, given the questionable timing of leaks and releases from the investigation to drop after Trump does something particularly nasty.

      Plus the complete lack of indictments or motion toward indictments, other than idle threats.

  • Superman

    I’m from Indiana and Pence would be worse.

    • Gerry Fisher

      One problem at a time. We’re going to be cleaning up this mess for many years.

    • Jim Gallagher-Barker

      When Trump and whichever kleptocratic nutjob he’s provoked finally get their rocks off, most of the planet will have bounced a good 12′ from rest. Being able to say “at least Pence didn’t get us into a dick measuring contest with Kim Jong Un’s ill-concealed WMD hard on” is a damn good reason to get rid of Trump–regardless of Pence’s extreme christianist views.

      Besides, Pence is easily controlled. Hire younger female secretaries throughout the White House. He’ll never get anything done because be stuck in the family quarters under Mother Pence’s thumb.

  • Boreal
    • Lawerence Collins

      That clowns not nearly scary enough to be President Toxic 🍊🤡💩..

  • DesertSun59

    Eventually, 45 will hear about this campaign and respond by Tweeting that maybe it’s a good idea to launch nukes. After all, he responds to all stimuli like a three year old.

  • worstcultever

    The problem is so much bigger than Dumpfuck.

  • Lawerence Collins
    • The_Wretched

      Sprayed with tear gas? Hell, the Dakota line protestors were shot at with rubber bullets, water cannons at freezing temps and the tear gas was via exploding grenades.

      • Lawerence Collins

        All correct. I watched a lot of the live coverage. From one independent news outlet. It was grotesque, what the state and our government let happen.

  • rextrek

    it really coming to the point that the Earth needs a Nice sized Asteroid douching!

    • edrex

      let’s try impeachment first.

  • Belthazar

    Things like this always seem to be “putting the cart before the horse”. How about laying the groundwork for taking back the House (narrow chance at best) and then worry about impeachment. Because, with the House’s current make up, it will never happen.

    • CraigNJ

      Why can’t we do both?

      It’s gonna take at least two people to hold his gut up, and the blower better suck on a lemon so their lips can tighten up enough to grip on his widdle weewee. Otherwise it will be like throwing a toothpick down a five lane highway.

  • Herald

    Who is this ad for? American citizens don’t get to vote on impeachment. He should give 10 million to the DNC where it could do some good.

    • Todd20036

      but they can vote for Congressmen who will impeach him

      • Herald

        Which is exactly why he should give to the DNC.

  • Mike

    There will be no impeachment, no matter what. It’s christmas every day for Republicans, having the psycho Trump giving them everything they ever wanted. Yesterday, even the Republicans who cry crocodile tears over Trump, voted to let banks swindle us with impunity. Trump is an embarrassment, but the problem is Republicans.

    Instead of spending money on impeachment ads, Democrats should be spending money to snap the purple-staters out of their trance and force them to face the fact that Republicans are destroying everything, and their power must be taken away. That means it’s vital that people vote Democratic in 2018. Focus on the House and Senate and don’t waste another dime on impeachment.

    • Helen Damnation™

      It took over a year for the first Republican senator to speak out against Nixon; it’s taken less than a year for this to happen to Trump. Just sayin’.

      • Mike

        Even Nixon, a crook, had many redeeming qualities. Trump has none. Trump is infinitely crazier, more corrupt, and more dangerous. Also, the government then was not yet completely owned by a wealthy sliver of society determined to destroy anything that they find inconvenient.

        It is important that people stop lamenting Trump and realize that there isn’t a spec of ideological difference between Trump and Flake, Kasich, Collins, Bush, or any of the better-behaved Republicans. Trump is only the symptom, the rash, the pimple; Republicanism is the disease. Trump or no Trump, everything will get worse as long as they have the power.

  • JWC

    What will it take A groundswell movement starting with ads like this to fire people is one way .The GOP on their own, have not nor will not do anything..Its the threat of the public , the threat of getting tossed out of office, the threat of loosing their squandered majority Its YOU people

  • Gerry Fisher

    On the one hand, good. On the other hand, “Duh!”

  • ElenorRigby

    as. if.

    We all know that a petition does fuck all… the only reason he’s doing this petition is that he’s data mining you. sign that petition and you’re on his mailing list for life…he’ll sell your name and info to every PAC, liberal group, marketing company, charity, telemarketing company and junk mail/spam mail list he can find. Yes, he’s spending 10 million of his own money… he’ll make 50 million back.

    Don’t be an idiot. Trump isn’t going to be impeached.

    • Friday’s_cat

      No different than the pleas from the DNC or Move On.
