CBS This Morning on Thursday scored an exclusive interview with Tom Steyer, a newly announced Democratic presidential candidate, yet never once managed to refer to him as progressive or liberal. Instead, he is simply a “billionaire activist” who also is leading an expensive campaign to impeach Donald Trump.
The journalists on CBS This Morning, Monday, reacted to far-left Tom Steyer’s possible presidential bid by wondering if it was an act of “charity” on his part. Also, co-host Anthony Mason blurted out that he “went to school” with the man now known for his drive to impeach Donald Trump. Co-host Tony Dokoupil oddly speculated, “He’s pledged half of his wealth to charity. I wonder if he counts this running for president thing as charity?” Mason revealed, “I went to school with him.” Co-host Gayle King marveled, “That’s incredible.”
Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer is such a tease. The California mega-donor teased the media with a presidential run early in 2019, only to announce he wasn’t running. Now new reports suggest the major Democratic contributor and founder of Need to Impeach and NextGen America may jump into the crowded 2020 Democratic field after all.
Did Tom Steyer watch the same Democratic debates everyone else did? If so, the left-wing billionaire is putting lipstick on that big, loud, unruly pig. Steyer tweeted, “The #DemDebate shows that we can strive for better than Donald Trump and his enablers. We must restore dignity and honor to the presidency––not just by winning in 2020, but by impeaching @realdonaldtrump.”
The left’s latest attempt to rally support for impeachment was a massive failure with everyone but Hollywood and some media. Liberal Billionaire Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach group was joined by MoveOn, the Women’s March, Indivisible and others at an Impeach Trump Day of Action June 15.
A coalition of liberal groups including California Billionaire Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach and MoveOn, the Women’s March, Indivisible and more held an Impeach Trump Day of Action June 15. Although, conservatives poked fun at the rallies that fell flat and had poor turnout — which might explain the minimal national media coverage of the events.
Anti-Trump California billionaire Tom Steyer leads the Need to Impeach “movement,” and Next Gen America political group. ABC wasn’t honest enough to make that clear for readers on June 1.
Instead, the network misled them by making it sound like two grassroots organizations were promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Nevermind that the same billionaire donor is behind both groups and is spending millions to make impeachment a reality.
Liberal billionaire George Soros gives millions each year to fund a left-wing media empire that promotes far-left opinions. It’s only natural that some of those Soros-funded or Soros-linked media are pushing the eco-socialist Green New Deal and hoping to influence the upcoming presidential race. The Green New Deal resolution was introduced by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA). Ocasio-Cortez described it as a “comprehensive agenda of economic, social and racial justice,” aiming to force a New Deal-like federal mobilization designed to “achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition.”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough calls on billionaire Tom Steyer to "get some lawyers" to work for the disbarment of Attorney General William Barr. Steyer has spent tens of millions of dollars on TV ads calling for the impeachment of President Trump.
Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent is promoting the latest video by serial impeachment ad-maker Tom Steyer under the headline "Democrats are badly blowing it against Trump. A brutal new TV ad shows how." The ad avoids the central finding of the Mueller Report of no Trump-Russia collusion and pretends that there was obstruction of justice, which the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General did not find, for a crime that did not happen.
Liberals and the media were obsessed with the idea that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia. California billionaire Tom Steyer expected the investigation would provide proof of “collusion.” He cited it as one of 10 reasons to impeach Trump and he’s not backing down, even now that the FBI special investigation of Trump is over without finding any collusion with Russia.
Seeking to deflect criticism of Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar for her history of anti-Semitic remarks, Morning Joe swung into whataboutism mode today. Joe Scarborough flagrantly mischaracterized a tweet by GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy prior to the midterms. Scarborough twice claimed that McCarthy had said: "don't let Jews buy the election."
The liberal media outlet The Intercept reported that its scrutiny of the liberal Center for American Progress recently led to the firing of two CAP employees “suspected” of leaking emails. Leaked emails showed concern among some staff about United Arab Emirates’ influence at the liberal group.
CAP is one of the most well-known liberal groups in Washington, D.C. and is supported by a host of prominent left-wing names including George Soros and Tom Steyer. Soros gave more than $12 million to CAP between 2005 and 2014 and more since.
