The estate of Pablo Escobar has launched a stablecoin to fund the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump.
Since the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the political left has been dreaming of getting rid of Donald Trump. Numerous investigations have been launched to prove some form of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, but so far, investigators have essentially only found a few people who gave inaccurate testimony and the fact that Trump paid a porn actress for sex 12 years before. However, Democrats have a new ally in their goal of impeaching Trump – the estate of notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Even more interesting is that a new cryptocurrency is being used to fund the campaign.
No Love for Donald Trump
There are times when truth is stranger than fiction, and I have to say that this is such a time. Roberto Escobar, along with his brother Pablo Escobar, created the infamous Medellín drug cartel. They built a narcotics empire based upon violence and fear, but they also used a lot of money to buy the support of poor people who had been forgotten by Mexico’s central and regional governments.
The “legacy” of Pablo Escobar is being preserved by the Escobar Inc. company (I am attempting to keep a straight face while typing this). Roberto feels that he can best honor his dead drug kingpin brother by getting Donald Trump impeached.
To that end, Escobar Inc. originally had a GoFundMe campaign going, which supposedly hit $50 million. The crowdfunding platform allegedly pulled the campaign, so Escobar Inc. has chosen a different route – launching an ICO for a new stablecoin tied to the U.S. dollar.
The ESCOBAR Stablecoin
The ESCOBAR is based upon the Ethereum blockchain and is an ERC-20 token. A single ESCOBAR coin will equal one dollar. The ICO for the project will split the proceeds between the impeachment fund and development for the coin.
Speaking to Hard Fork, Daniel Reitberg, COO of Escobar Inc., said:
Yes, we had plans to release this cryptocurrency in 2019 as a stablecoin alternative to the USD Tether. We do not trust the USDT. We think that people should use our coin, as we have a much larger business sense than most other companies out there and Roberto Escobar has made hundreds of billions of dollars throughout his career.
This isn’t the first crypto rodeo for Escobar Inc. and Roberto Escobar. Last year, they launched Diet Bitcoin (DDX), a fork of BTC. It was not successful. Currently, DDX is trading at $0.006139 and has a market cap of $15,624, according to CoinMarketCap.
Who knows if the political left will want to align themselves with a notorious and violent drug cartel in their ongoing efforts against Trump? If you wish to donate to the impeachment fund, you can do so with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and USDT. Of course, there’s no guarantee how the money will be used (violent drug cartel, remember?).
Overall, the official Impeach Trump Fund website, run by the Escobar crew, is an entertaining read. I love this bit of flavor text:
MY NAME IS DONALD TRUMP, I AM THE PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND
I AM SCARED OF PABLO ESCOBAR
If someone can impeach me, it must be Pablo Escobar and his family and brother Roberto Escobar. I have done so many things wrong both before, during (and probably after) my presidency, that I deserve to be impeached and removed from ruling the U.S.A.
Just remember, folks:
