Remember Valerie Plame? She’s tired of people always answering that question with “No.” She spent years failing to take down George Bush, and now she wants to spend years failing to take down Donald Trump. She needs your help. More importantly, she needs your money.

Um, it’s called logic, people.
I’m not a fan of Trump’s tweeting either, but I guess I’m a bit skeptical about this approach. From Plame’s GoFundMe page:
Donald Trump has done a lot of horrible things on Twitter. From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm’s way. But threatening actual nuclear war with North Korea takes it to a dangerous new level.
It’s time to shut him down…
Twitter is a publicly traded company. Shares = power. This GoFundMe will fund the purchase of a controlling interest in Twitter…
Let’s #BuyTwitter and delete Trump’s account before he starts a nuclear war with it. The whole world will thank us when we do!
Plame figures she needs to raise one billion smackeroonies to get this done. How’s that going so far?
A little under $3,000 in five days. At the rate of $600 a day, she should raise enough money to buy Twitter in, let’s see… only 4,500 years or so. In a mere 45 years, she might even take in as much cash as Fair Game did.
Well, the important thing is that she’s staying woke. At least she’s showing her #Resistance without beating people up in the street, or throwing bottles of piss at them, or trying to blow up Confederate monuments. These days she’s practically a moderate.
