Trump Sparks Merciless Mockery After Blaming Dems For His Crime
President Donald Trump drew a fierce backlash on Sunday after lashing out at Democrats for considering impeachment proceedings against him following the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
The possibility of impeachment gained new urgency after the release of Mueller’s redacted report on Thursday. Though the special counsel’s team concluded there was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, it also outlined in vivid detail ways in which Trump had possibly sought to interfere with the investigation, raising questions over whether he obstructed justice.
Mueller himself declined to draw a conclusion one way or the other on that matter. But the open-ended nature of that section of the report has led to renewed calls by congressional Democrats to look into whether Trump should be impeached.
“How do you impeach a Republican President for a crime that was committed by the Democrats? MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump tweeted shortly after arriving in Washington following an Easter Sunday spent at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.
Trump’s tweet came after several Democratic leaders in Congress made clear on Sunday that the possibility of impeachment was still on the table, despite opposition from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and others.
Trump’s comment was met with a fierce backlash online. Read some of the highlights below.

You don’t. You impeach a Republican President for a crime that he committed.

Gee, that’s weird.
Your assbat, Rudy Giuliani, was just saying today that getting info from Russia was NOT a crime.
Can you two buffoons at least get your crime lies straight?

Even on Easter you choose to lie and belittle people! You have ZERO integrity! I’m embarrassed of you and for you! You are an embarrassment to the Office of the President of the United States! Disgusting, dishonest, disgraceful and disheartening!

Really? They’re the ones who lied and obstructed justice? Oh my God, you are an idiot.

You don’t comprehend the dishonor you bring w/your pathological lying, pervasive obstruction of justice, & disdain for law & order. Democrats didn’t do this to you. You did it to yourself. America was great before you & will be great again after you. We’re patriotic & resilient.
