The liberal fact check website Snopes is reporting (and fact checking their own report, shockingly as True) about a billboard erected along the side of the road in Calvert County MD. Take a look:
Billboard at the intersection of Rte. 4 and Bowie Shop Road.
Better get your guns if you try to impeach President Trump. From all of your Deplorables in Calvert County.”

Captain Dave Payne of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to us that the billboard does exist, and that it had been erected by the side of the road near the intersection of Route 4 (Solomons Island Road) and Bowie Shop Road near Huntingtown in southern Maryland, which is around 40 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.
Payne said he was not aware how long the billboard has been up, but told us that the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and other local officials had contacted the person responsible for it; that person agreed to take it down as soon as they return from a trip out of town in order to “alleviate the controversy.”
The question for today, should the responsible party take down the sign? What’s the responsible thing to do?
