David Axelrod, who served as a high adviser to former President Obama, on Saturday criticized the push led by Democrat mega-donor Tom Steyer to question President Trump, calling the hbadle “a vanity project.”
“Steyer impeachment ads seem to me more of a vanity project than a call to action. It is-at least this point-an unhelpful message,” Axelrod wrote on Twitter.
“If impeachment turns into a political software, it will likely be as damaging to our democracy because the degradations @actualDonaldTrump has inflicted on it.”
Steyer impeachment advertisements appear to me extra of a conceit challenge than a name to motion. It is-at least this point-an unhelpful message. If impeachment turns into a political software, it will likely be as damaging to our democracy because the degradations @actualDonaldTrump has inflicted on it.

“We’re going to fight even harder to make sure each and every American can make their voice heard, and give them a direct platform to demand action.”
Steyer stated Thursday that he’s including two tv advertisements to the marketing campaign, which is already airing one commercial.
Trump has known as Steyer “wacky & totally unhinged” over the marketing campaign.
