The Brief: Impeachment 2.0 memes are spreading online following the historic second impeachment of President Donald Trump in January 2021.
On Wednesday, January 13, 2021, the United States House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump for “high crimes and misdemeanors,” referring to the insurrection he incited at the U.S. Capitol. This marks the second time he’s been impeached, making him the only U.S. president to be impeached twice. On social media, people reacted to this news with memes about Trump’s second impeachment, poking fun at the fact that he’s been impeached twice and noting the epic level of failure of his presidency.

The good thing for President Trump is that without Twitter, he won’t know he was impeached again

The rest of us may be having a bad week, or even a bad year, but at least we weren’t impeached!

If Trump gets impeached 3 or 4 more times he's going to be in big trouble

Who would’ve thought that this meme would be relevant twice…
While it may not be something to brag about, Trump has reached a whole other level of impeachment.
