Activists troll Trump by posting ‘Impeach Bannon’ posters across the country

Published

on

With questions being raised over who exactly is wielding power inside the White House, activists are calling for the ouster of Trump chief adviser Steve Bannon with “impeachment” signs popping up around the country and directed at the former Breitbart head.

Bannon, who stepped in and helped straighten out a faltering Trump campaign that eventually propelled businessman Donald Trump to the presidency, is considered by many to be a Svengali-type character, manipulating the newly-elected president.

According to The Hill, signs stating, “Impeach President Bannon,” followed by the timeline list: “Reagan Bush Clinton Bush Obama Bannon” have shown up in major cities across the country — just in time for President’s Day Weekend.

The signs have been spotted in New York City, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

According to organizers behind the guerilla campaign, “No one voted for Steve Bannon. Yet he is the de-facto 45th President of the United States.”

The organizers also stated that they hoped to get a response on Twitter from the easily-riled Trump stating, “Maybe we’ll encourage an angry tweet or two. Maybe even get Trump to say his two favorite words to Bannon, ‘You’re Fired.’ ”

2020 Election

The GOP is a suicide cult

Published

on

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

Back in March, we argued that Donald Trump had become the charismatic leader of the dumbest suicide cult ever. There were fewer than 500 confirmed cases of Covid-19 at the time, but it wasn't difficult to see the trajectory we were on at even that early date. At the time, we were commenting on the President's* repeated claims that the whole thing was a big hoax and polls showing that Democrats were twice as likely as Republicans to say they were taking steps to avoid becoming infected.

Trump has committed at least 11 disgraceful acts just since April: conservative

Published

on

On Saturday, writing for The Washington Post, conservative columnist Max Boot outlined all of the chaos President Donald Trump has caused just in the last three months — arguing that "he has disgraced the nation’s highest office as no previous occupant has come close to doing."

"Think about all that has happened since April 5," wrote Boot. "That was before security forces attacked peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square so that Trump could stage a bizarre photo-op. Before he pushed to send the armed forces into the streets. Before he embraced 'white power' and called Black Lives Matter 'a symbol of hate.' Before he vowed to veto the defense authorization bill to prevent the renaming of military bases named after Confederate generals. Before he used the novel coronavirus as an excuse to shut down immigration and threatened to revoke the visas of college students unable to attend classes in the fall."
