LawNewz – The 2016 presidential election marked the beginning of the Age of Impeachment. Before the Trump vs. Clinton showdown captivated Americans, impeachment of a president was infrequently talked about, and even less frequently done. Only two presidents in history were ever impeached – and neither was convicted. But as the 2016 election drew to a close, the “inevitable” impeachment of presumed winner Hillary Clinton for her part in Emailgate was debated in circles large and small. When Donald Trump pulled out his shocking win, the conversation changed, but impeachment was still at its heart.
HuffingtonPost – Dan Savage is using his disdain for President Donald Trump for great causes.
The LGBTQ rights activist and author announced April 18 that he’d raised $100,000 for three organizations that are in direct opposition to Trump policies through the sale of ITMFA, or “Impeach The Mother F*cker Already,” merchandise.
Savage, 52, made the announcement on the weekly Seattle newspaper, The Stranger, and on his personal Instagram.
“This morning I had the distinct pleasure of mailing off checks to Planned Parenthood ($33,333.34), the ACLU ($33,333.33) and the International Refugee Assistance Project ($33,333.33)—money we raised selling ITMFA (“Impeach The Mother F*cker Already”) buttons, t-shirts, hats, stickers, coffee cups, and lapel pins,” he wrote.
I’m mailing out checks today—and not just to the IRS. This morning I had the distinct pleasure of mailing off checks to Planned Parenthood ($33,333.34), the ACLU ($33,333.33) and the International Refugee Assistance Project ($33,333.33)—money we raised selling ITMFA (“Impeach The Mother Fucker Already”) buttons, t-shirts, hats, stickers, coffee cups, and lapel pins at www.ITMFA.org and www.impeachthemotherfuckeralready.com. And I got to mail those checks out because nearly 10,000 Savage Love readers and Savage Lovecast listeners have ordered #ITMFA gear over the last eight weeks! The best part of wearing ITMFA buttons or t-shirts or hats or lapel pins or all of the above? Or the second best part, I should say, after helping to raise money for three critically important and hugely effective organizations fighting Donald Trump? The interactions you have with friends, co-workers, neighbors, at anti-Trump marches, on the bus, etc. Because when people are going to ask you what ITMFA stands for and YOU GET TO TELL THEM it stands for ‘Impeach The Mother Fucker Already!” (If there are kids around you can go with “Malicious Fascist” or “Malodorous Fart” or “Malignant Fraud.”) We sell the buttons in ten packs (ten for $10) so you can share buttons with people who absolutely have to have one after they find out what it means!
