Ad is now canceled

Tom Steyer in his TV ad asking Americans to join the movement to impeach President Trump
(NATIONAL) -- Poor Fox Fixed News. Even though the guy's money is good, even though it's new money (manna from heaven) and even though the guy is a very successful capitalist and Fox News is all about raging capitalism, the suits at Fox just couldn't help themselves.
Free speech and new dough notwithstanding, Fox Cable News canceled the guy's ad and sacrificed all that money just because the ad didn't show Donald Trump in the normal fawning light that Fox customarily showers on the controversial right wing Republican President -- who happens to have one of the lowest public approval ratings in history.
The Fox News Cable TV Channel says it won't air any more ads from the wealthy Democratic donor/hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer advocating President Donald Trump's impeachment, according to a report by the Associated Press.
The report says Fox is canceling the ad "due to its viewers' strong negative reaction," says the AP report. In fact, says the report, one of those viewers was Trump himself who tweeted that the hedge fund guy, Tom Steyer was "wacky and totally unhinged."
Is Steyer unhinged? You be the judge. The ad he's running nationwide on his own dime (about $10 million worth) is below.

Steyer's commercial warns that Trump has “brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice at the FBI” and has “taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations” in violation of the constitution.
“People in Congress and his own administration know this president is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. And they do nothing”, Steyer says in the spot. “Join us and tell your Member of Congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what’s political and start doing what’s right”.
According to the AP report, which quotes Steyer's lawyer, so far 1.5 million people have signed that petition -- which would seem to indicate that for a guy who's unhinged, he knows how to put together one very productive TV ad.
