President Donald Trump took to his favorite social networking platform late on Tuesday evening -- after House of Representative Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Democrats were launching an impeachment inquiry.

Trump praised multiple Republicans who appeared on Fox News to defend the president. During the Trump era, the network has been ridiculed as "state media" for echoing White House talking points.

Shortly before 11 p.m. Eastern, Trump praised an appearance by far-right lawyer Joe DiGenova on the Tucker Carlson show.

Nine minutes later, he praised an appearance by Jenna Ellis Rives, who was also interviewed by Carlson. She is on the Trump 2020 advisory board.

Thirteen minutes later he said "sooooo true" about an appearance on Fox News by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Fourteen minutes later he praised an appearance by Republican National Committee member Harmeet Dhillon with Lou Dobbs on Fox Business.

Three minutes later, Trump thanked House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for an appearance with Sean Hannity.

Four minutes later, he thanked Lou Dobbs and Jeanine Pirro. That tweet was sent only nineteen minutes before midnight.
