Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer complained about rich white men influencing the direction of politics during a Monday interview on MSNBC.


Steyer is a white billionaire hedge fund manager who has injected millions of dollars into progressive politics in his quest to impeach President Donald Trump.

“Is impeachment talk political suicide for Democrats as it relates to Justice Kavanaugh?” MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson asked Steyer, referencing comments from Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.

“I don’t think so,” Steyer said. “I think what Sen. Graham was saying was on evidence in Washington last week, which was, a group of very rich, very entitled white men wanted to tell the rest of the country, ‘we are going to have our way, and if you don’t like it, that is too darn bad.'”

Steyer added that America needs to go to the polls during the midterm elections and tell the “rich entitled white men” that “we exist and democracy exists.”
