VIRAL: 1.1M Sign Tom Steyer’s Impeachment Petition

Axios reports:

Billionaire political activist Tom Steyer, who called for President Trump’s impeachment Oct. 20, with an ad that quickly went viral and was even noticed by the president, said he’s collected 1,119,720 signatures on his impeachment petition.

Impeachment proceedings are incredibly difficult to carry out, as we’ve written before. But more than a million names in ten days highlights the opposition to a president with a sub-40% approval rating.

  • Gustav2

    The timing of the ad was perfect.

    • KBlackie

      Seriously! And how beautiful was Mueller’s timing yesterday? I was like, this dude ain’t investigating treason, he’s conducting a symphony.

  • KBlackie

    I just love that things are getting more and more difficult for this dufus. More people are really paying attention now. His approval rating is 33% through Sunday and I can only imagine how much more it can crater post Happy Indictment Day (Monday). I signed the petition last week.

      Who knew presidenting would be so hard?

      Lulz.

  • LovesIrony

    That would make pence president…be careful what you wish for, you might get it.

    • Dramphooey

      I might have agreed with that before I saw the far right getting everything they want anyhow, from completely unqualified nut jobs on the bench to radio hosts being promoted to scientist.

      • LovesIrony

        I prefer republicans at war with each other than united under a christianista

        • JCF

          See re elections of 1974 and 1976 (and Pence isn’t remotely as good a leader as Jerry Ford).

    • KBlackie

      I understand that completely. But also feel like maybe he’d (Pence) be just a lame duck President with a Democratic majority rendering his agenda inert. That to me is the best case scenario. I read that Trump is now sending Rand and Christie out to float the idea of him not running for reelection, thus setting up a run for Pence in 2020 and that’s what I DONT want. Worst case scenario is Drumpf running and winning again.

    • zherazhera

      It’s far from ideal but better than tRump. Hopefully Pence will go down with the rest.

    • Rambie

      I understand the worry, I too have similar feelings. This process will take time, Mueller is just starting the indictments, there is more to come and the Shit-Gibbon won’t go down alone.

      Hopefully there will be enough splash damage on all the Republicans to pull that party away from the “christians”

    • KnownDonorDad

      The only silver lining is that Pence doesn’t get a reality star’s free pass on behavior that would have sunk any other career politician.

      Complicit.

      • -M-

        And violated the foreign corrupt practices act working on daddy’s foreign development deals.

      • Christian1234567

        Have you seen the SNL “ad” for Complicit Perfume? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7o4oMKbStE

        • BearEyes

          I have. It’s perfect and why I wrote that.
          I also love that a reporter asked Ivunka if she thought she’s complicit. Ivunka responded by not seeming to understand what the word meant – which only made her appear more complicit.

    • zherazhera

      I’d like for Ivanka to join them.

        Wow

      • olandp

        For “God” the Ten Commandments are optional, that is why his preferred President is a money worshiping, unrepentant compulsive liar, serial adulterous, sexual predator.

        Makes perfect sense to me

        Stolen from PickyPecker:

        I bet he’s fun at parties.

      • Lawerence Collins

        What decades of Faux News has brought us.

      • JCF

        Homocon? He looks like he’s Just About to break into the Can-Can…

  • Boreal
    • Joe in PA

      I saw that the other day…love the “media should calm down” comment. Hahahaha.

  • Friday’s_cat

    One of the few times I’m watching cable news, that ad aired.

  • medaka

    It took President Fucking Moron almost a day to tweet this shit out. Hahahaha!

    • Friday’s_cat

      Maybe his prostate wasn’t acting up?

    • Michael White

      I wonder how Jared and Uday and Qusay slept last night.

      • Tread

        Ha, I bet they’ve already flipped.

    • Rex

      He really wants to pin something on the Dems. Sad.

      • Joe Maynard

        In truth, he doesn’t care whether it is the Dems or the Mexicans or the Blacks or the Muslims or the Gays or ….. He wants to avoid responsibility, which one does by pinning it on somebody else. Like Pavlov’s dogs or a circus trainer’s seal, the base have been conditioned to salivate and bark at the phrase “Hillary and the Dems.” It’s essentially a brand slogan. It has no meaning beyond that and should be interpreted in that light. (Remember, for all his braying about his real estate and business background, DT’s actual success has been in self-promotion – advertising, basically. Of all the many talents he claims, that is the only one he actually has. Well, that and lying, but even he realizes one doesn’t claim that as a talent.)

        • I agree, except dogs and seals are much smarter than his base supporters.

          • ChrisMorley

            Doggies and seals are also super cute.

        • prixator

          And he’s not even a very good liar. He just does it compulsively.

      • stevetrujillo

        Vote Democratic in 2018.

    • zherazhera

      If he was so low level and unknown, what was he doing in that meeting, Donnie?

      • medaka

        And why did he flip? And why was he just in London? And HAHAHAHA!

    • Joe in PA

      Yeah, I wondered how long it would take before the gas-lighting would begin…oh the irony of the carny-handed mango man calling someone a liar. Bwahahahaah. Oh, and that “low level volunteer”? There is video of Trump praising him.

      • Bluto

        I thought low level volunteers normally sit in on nat’l security meetings with the top dogs. huh.

      • Tread

        There is video of Papadopolous sitting on the National Security Council. Trump is well and truly fucked.

    • Gustav2

      Funny how they are trying make the lower tier in the national campaign office like grandma working the phones in Peoria.

  • olandp

    I support impeachment, but I’ll never sign an online petition.

    • Silver Badger

      Never again. It takes years to get off of the various mailing lists.

      • AaronD12

        That’s what throw-away email addresses are for.

  • stevetrujillo

    We. must make sure that Congress does not impede the Mueller investigation !!!

  • Gustav2

    A new Public Policy Polling survey finds 49% of voters support impeaching President Trump, as compared to 41% who are opposed to doing so.

  • MDixon34

    So when does the justice dept demand he release the names of those who signed it.

  • Lawerence Collins
  • JCF

    I have mixed feelings re Steyer (Do.Not.Want.As.CA.Gov.Or.Senator!).

    But I just signed the petition.
