‘You lost’: Internet mocks Trump for cheering on ‘great vote’ — that Republicans lost

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, read what he later described as a "parody" of President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. While Schiff apologized, Trump has called for his immediate impeachment.


Republicans sought to go after Schiff with a resolution for his censure while Schiff was outside of the United States. Generally, both parties refrain from trashing each other while they're on foreign soil. Most recently, Pelosi was asked questions about Trump during a European visit to commemorate D-Day in Normandy.

Republicans like Newt Gingrich promoted the "dishonesty" of Schiff on Fox News while other far-right Republican House members attacked Shiff while he was out of the country. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) similarly blasted Schiff.

Trump went on a tirade tweeting several posts from Republican members bashing Schiff. He called it a "great vote" -- except he lost the vote.

It prompted a considerable backlash against Trump, Cheney, and a slew of other Republicans online. You can see the best tweets below.

(Correction: A previous version of this story erroneously claimed that Adam Schiff had accidentally read a satirical article with a fake transcript of President Donald Trump’s call.)
