The Brief: House Speaker Nanci Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, inspiring many celebratory Trump impeachment memes.
Late Tuesday afternoon, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. In addition to creating quite a stir in the realm of news and politics, this announcement has led to an influx in impeachment memes.
After months of caution surrounding a potential impeachment, this inquiry comes after new information has arisen regarding allegations that President Trump sought to enlist a foreign power to interfere in U.S. elections. This announcement comes after a number of significant house democrats called for an impeachment inquiry earlier in the day.
If this inquiry leads to formal impeachment proceedings, it will likely take months and may require the Senate to host impeachment hearings in an election year. In spite of the slowness of the impeachment process, many people have taken to social media to express their delight at the prospect of a Trump impeachment.
Related trending Twitter hashtags include #ImpeachTrump, #Impeachment, and #ImpeachmentInquiry. Trump impeachment memes include GIFs, celebration, outrage, and skepticism. As these events continue to unfold, it is likely that there will be many more memes and social media reactions.
