Donald Trump officially became the third president in history to be impeached shortly before last Christmas. News of the announcement was dubbed #MerryImpeachmas on Twitter, because it was holiday season, and, well, that’s social media for you.
Now that we’re in the new year, and the trial has kicked into full gear, the Twit-talk has begun again.
“Happy Impeachment Year” doesn’t have a good ring to it, especially three weeks into 2020, but there’s no shortage of snappy hashtags going around. There has been some variation of impeachment-related hashtags trending for the past couple of days since the trial began on Tuesday. So far this week, we’ve seen #TrumpImpeachmentTrial, #GOPCoverup, #MidnightMitch, #MoscowMitch, #MidnightMoscowMitch, #TrumpImpeachment, #AdamSchiffRocks, the more straightforward #ImpeachmentTrials, and #ImpeachTrump has resurfaced.
Sometimes they’re all trending at the same time! Other times, you will catch some version of one or a couple at once, but the one consistent thing about this political circus is that someone always has something to say.
Impeachment commentary ranges from snarky insults to amusing quips in a never-ending flow of word vomit. Here are some of the most interesting tweets that we’ve seen thus far:

He voted to remove President Bill Clinton from office for lying about an extramarital affair. How will he vote this time when democracy itself is at stake? @senatemajldr #ImpeachAndRemove #ImpeachTrump pic.twitter.com/r48VBj0vc1

This whole display is literally the message to all of us that trials and the way our justice system is supposed to work really isn't supposed to work that way for certain people.

Some of the #CrookedGopSenators are complaining about sitting and listening to testimony. 1st and foremost its your d*mn job, so do it without complaining! When I go to #JuryDuty, I sit & listen with an open mind. It's called civic duty. DO YOUR JOB FOR ONCE! #ImpeachmentTrials pic.twitter.com/bpjRADLC7x

The rest of the impeachment process should just be a YouTube playlist of hypocritical things the senate republicans and Trump have said recently. #ImpeachmentHearings #ImpeachmentTrials pic.twitter.com/bwD604RgEE
