President Donald Trump started off the second full day of his impeachment nightmare with an all-caps yelp, and other social media users loved to see it.
The White House released a summary Wednesday of Trump's July 25 call to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky showing he tried to pressure the foreign government to investigate Joe Biden, and a whistleblower complaint detailing the scheme will be released Thursday morning, when his acting director of national intelligence will testify on those topics.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry Tuesday, and the president tweeted out an angry complaint about his sudden predicament.
"THE GREATEST SCAM IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN POLITICS!" Trump growled.
