Donald Trump has his fair share of people wishing for his demise, but porn tycoon and publisher of Hustler Larry Flynt is willing to pay good money for it. He's offering a $10 million reward "for information leading to the impeachment and removal from office of Donald J. Trump."
The tweet has gotten a lot of attention, but anyone can tweet something on a whim —which President Trump himself has proven again and again— but Flynt also took out a full page ad in The Washington Post to pair with his quest. Besides the bold typed offer, Flynt also claimed the election was illegitimate, listed the specific charges against Trump, compared him to former president Richard Nixon and gave his credentials as an opponent to corrupt politicians.
"This is not my first rodeo," Flynt told readers.
So I decided to do this...let's see what happens. pic.twitter.com/Xpy4qrwHU7

This isn't the first time Flynt has done this for Trump either. Before Trump even won the election, he offered $1 million dollars for "verifiable video footage or audio recordings for use prior to the November 8 election clearly showing Donald Trump engaging in illegal activity or acting in a sexually demeaning or derogatory manner,"NBC News reported.
The ad itself is a pretty good read with some colorful language and a refreshing frankness. He says this is not just "a sour-grapes plot by Democrats."
Whether it's the "skullduggery" of the electoral college or the fact that "long before the climate-change apocalypse strikes, Trump might trigger a nuclear war" Flynt wrote — and does not hold back. He set up a hotline and email address for tips, so if he's willing to listen to a bunch of crackpot conspiracy theories on the off-chance one leads to something impactful, he must mean business.
He finishes with "I feel it is my patriotic duty, and the duty of all Americans, to dump Trump before it's too late."
And you have to admit, "dump Trump" is pretty catchy.
