Tom Steyer Hoping for ‘Nuclear War’

In an interview with Rolling Stone’s Tim Dickerson published on Friday, liberal megadonor Tom Steyer told the magazine that he is hoping for a “nuclear war” to destroy the Trump administration.

The billionaire first theorized that President Bush and congressional Republicans lost control of the federal government because of the instability surrounding the economy and the global War on Terror. Steyer said that those factors led to a “course correction” in American politics.

But the change that swept Republicans out of office in 2006 and 2008 did not come quickly enough for Steyer, apparently. He is now hoping for something as disastrous as nuclear war to end Trump’s presidency.

“Maybe we can have, like, a nuclear war and then we get a real course correction,” the billionaire told Dickerson.

Steyer quickly corrected himself, saying, “I take back that remark about nuclear war.” He added that he is trying to prevent suffering like that from happening.
