Tom Steyer: ‘Hey, What This Party Needs Is Its Own Lunatic Billionaire Candidate’

The Impeachment Drum Major throws his baton in the ring:

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer is planning to launch his campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, a report said Sunday.
The 62-year-old Steyer — who toyed with the idea of running in the past — held a private conference call lat week to tell people close to him that he was planning to run, according to Politico.
“He’s definitely focused on the [fact that the] economy is not as good as people are making it out to be,” a source told the newspaper.
“I think his heart’s in the right place. If he’s doing this, he’s got a reason behind it — He’s a very intelligent man.”
Steyer, a former hedge fund manager, founded the environmental advocacy nonprofit NextGen America.
He also founded a group, and spent millions, seeking to gain support for the impeachment of President Trump.

“Run All the Candidates,” as the professor keeps saying, and I’m not quite sure what Steyer thinks he’ll accomplish, except to teach Americans the meaning of words like “monomaniacal” and “idée fixe.” For years, Steyer has been pouring money into the coffers of organizations promoting homosexuality, environmentalism and open borders. So if you’re a Mexican lesbian concerned about global warming, Tom’s your guy. More recently, of course, Steyer’s been Patient Zero of the Trump Derangement Syndrome pandemic, spending vast sums to air TV ads demanding the president’s impeachment. What made him decide now that he needs to join the nearly two dozen Democratic candidates? Is it because there’s not enough zany Trump-haters on the debate stage?

Oh, but California Rep. Eric Swalwell, who advocated using nuclear weapons to disarm American gun owners, is dropping out of the race.

So, yeah, I guess they need more crazies on stage now.
