President Donald Trump kicked off the week with a incredibly whiny tweet about his impeachment, and was quickly mocked for claiming he’s “so busy” that he cannot be distracted from his duties as head of state:
“The reason they are not sending the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate is that they are so weak and so pathetic.” @LindseyGrahamSC @MariaBartiromo The great Scam continues. To be spending time on this political Hoax at this moment in our history, when I am so busy, is sad!

Keep in mind that Trump just returned from an extended holiday vacation of golfing and parties at Mar-a-Lago, so it’s not like he’s actually been doing anything, though he did manage to find time to order the assassination of a top Iranian general, a move that has brought the United States to the brink of war with Iran.
So you have to wonder: Is the escalation of tensions with Iran merely a smokescreen to divert attention from impeachment?
It didn’t take long for the president to get a thorough mocking:
You just spent 2+ weeks at Mar-a-Loco and threatening war on Twitter. Spare us the ‘busy’ b.s., #3.

This is a stupid lie. The reason Democrats have not yet sent over the articles is because you and your corrupt henchmen, including @LindseyGrahamSC, mysteriously don’t want to hear from the very witnesses who have the most direct knowledge of your corrupt extortion plot. Why not? https://t.co/KZHlpige8W

Lindsey Graham throwing the words ‘weak and pathetic’ around is pretty rich considering he went from calling you an unfit racist dip shit to cleaning your toilet seat with his toothbrush in the time it takes to say “John McCain has passed on.”

Is anyone still wondering why Trump assassinated Soleimani?
It’s all about the Impeachment.

All The House is asking for is a fair trial. Unfortunately McConnell, Graham, etc. have already come out saying they’re already biased. If the articles are so weak, have the Senators who have already expressed their tainted opinions on the outcome sit it out.

The assassination of Iranian general Qassim Suleimani is exactly the kind of dangerous event we foresaw as Donald Trump’s response to the impeachment proceedings, just as his pulling troops from northern Syria was a direct response to the announcement of an impeachment inquiry.
