13 perfect reactions to the news of an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump
Although we all know it’s unlikely to lead anywhere meaningful, the US is to open impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump, beginning with an inquiry. This follows a whistleblower’s evidence and the president’s own admission that he spoke to the Ukraine leader about investigating potential democratic presidential candidate, Senator Joe Biden.
This is how Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke the news.

And this is how President Donald Trump took it.

There was more, obviously; there’s always more, but we’ll leave it there. The announcement caused quite the storm on Twitter, with these hot takes coming to the fore.
Sure if Trump gets impeached we get Pence, but all we'd have to do to get rid of HIM is send a woman to walk in on him while he's dining alone.

How romantic it would be if the UK and America had a double impeachment

Like Rep. Pelosi, I haven't seen the point of a House impeachment proceeding when the McConnell-led Senate won't convict. But with this Ukraine business, Trump has gone too far and must be brought to heel. For the good of America, impeach now.

Our founding fathers never anticipated what we’re facing. A President who commits crimes on a daily basis. He was not held accountable for a foreign country helping him steal the last election. So he’s at it again. History will judge where we stand now. IMPEACH!
