On Monday morning, drivers near California’s Bay Bridge spotted a new billboard: one calling for the impeachment of Donald Trump.
The billboard is set to stay up for a week and has the word “IMPEACH” in giant yellow letters, while most of the rest of the billboard is in black and white and features an image of the president. It also includes the site: DemandImpeachmentNow.com.

The billboard was put up by the Courage Campaign, which cited specifically Trump’s inability to condemn white supremacists in Charlottesville and his actions against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program as reasons for concern.
“After his disgusting and misogynistic rhetoric about women, the nerve to rush to the defense of white supremacists in Charlottesville, and the ease with which he decided to remove DACA protections for hundreds of thousands of young people, there is more than a legal case; there is a moral imperative to act,” the Courage Campaign’s executive director, Eddie Kurtz, said in the release. “Congress must show Americans the values that our country stands for by taking steps to impeach President Trump.”
The group is also circulating a petition for the purpose of getting signatures in favor of impeachment.
