Liberal PAC Just Put Up Billboard Near Mar-a-Lago That Has Trump On Verge Of Meltdown

The president has worked hard to establish a semblance of a bubble of sorts around his administration. In his world, those with something negative to say are spouting “fake news” and most people — at least most people who matter to him — support his presidency.

Despite his best efforts to block out opposition, however, the president can’t escape the fact that a liberal political action committee has put up a billboard calling for his impeachment a strikingly short distance away from his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort.

The billboard, according to Newsweek, is set to be up from March 19 through April 15, and is situated less than two miles away from Mar-a-Lago on East Shannondale Road near Interstate 95 in West Palm Beach.

The billboard is the work of the Mad Dog PAC, which is the creation of infamous online political activist Claude Taylor, who praised the billboard’s seeming effectiveness in a Twitter post that included images of coverage of the president and his family arriving to Mar-a-Lago recently.

In one of the pieces Taylor pointed out, pro-Trump demonstrators are standing directly in front of the billboard, thus reminding the world that the entirety of the United States is not behind the belligerent businessman currently occupying the Oval Office.

The second piece of coverage referenced by Taylor is an image of two cars in the president’s motorcade driving past the billboard on Florida’s Interstate 95.

The president and his family arrived in West Palm Beach this past Friday, but Trump himself went back to the White House early.

Because of that difference in schedule, the president and Melania were not in the same place when the much anticipated Anderson Cooper sit-down with adult film star Stormy Daniels aired on 60 Minutes. 

Daniels claims to have had an affair with the president while he was married to his current wife, Melania; she and the president are currently engaged in a protracted legal battle over a nondisclosure agreement that she signed covering their alleged affair.

Besides the NDA, the Trump team also facilitated a payment of $130,000 to Daniels in hush money. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen has claimed that the money came from his own pocket, although he’s been reported to have griped privately about not having been paid back by the president.

As for Taylor’s Mad Dog PAC, it’s put up billboards similar to the one currently up in West Palm Beach before. For instance, the organization put up a billboard in Dallas featuring a remark from George W. Bush about U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.

Of Cruz, Bush said:

‘I just don’t like the guy.’

Other interests besides Taylor’s PAC have also sought to pressure Congress into impeaching the president, although since both chambers of Congress are currently controlled by the GOP, those efforts are unlikely to gain traction anytime soon.

Nevertheless, billionaire Tom Steyer has put up his own billboards and run television ads calling for the impeachment of the president; he coupled his with a petition that people could sign if they supported his efforts.

Among the activities on the part of the president that could warrant his impeachment is obstruction of justice.
