Trump Drops the I-Word: ‘How Do You Impeach’ Winner of ‘Perhaps the Greatest Election of All Time?’

Hours after a newly-sworn in Congresswoman vowed to “impeach the motherf*cker,” President Donald Trump addressed the concept himself on Twitter.

In the first of two early-morning tweets on the topic Friday, the president accused Democrats of wanting to impeach him because they believe they won’t defeat him at the polls in 2020.

“They only want to impeach me because they know they can’t win in 2020, too much success!” Trump wrote.

The president followed up by citing his high approval rating within the Republican party (while not mentioning his significantly lower numbers with Democrats and Independents) as a reason he shouldn’t be impeached.

“How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russia, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?” Trump wrote.

This is the first known instance of Trump tweeting about the prospect of impeachment. Of course, not coincidentally, the Democratic-controlled House gaveled into session on Thursday.
