Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Friday went off on a rant about Democrats purportedly trying to obtain nude photos of President Donald Trump — his second such rant in the span of just three days.
“When you find yourself on the phone, like the Democrats did, with Russian pranksters offering nude pictures of Trump, and afterward you order your staff to follow up and get the photos, as the Democrats also did, then it might be time to ask yourself if you’ve gone too far,” Nunes said in his opening statement ahead of House impeachment hearings.
This was the second time this week that Nunes has brought up nude Trump photos in an opening statement, which led many observers on Twitter to torch the California Republican for his seeming fixation on pornographic images of the president.
Check out some reactions below.
Devin Nunes is the only person besides the president* who cares about nude photos of the president*.

This is the second time Devin Nunes has mentioned nude photos of Trump. Three times and it's a New York Times style section trend piece.

Devin Nunes seems to enjoy talking about "nude pictures of Trump." Not sure why else he keeps bringing it up. If he has such pictures, that is his private business and we should not judge. 🐄🐮 #ImpeachingHearings

I want the world to know. As a Democrat, I break with my party. I am not seeking nude pictures of Donald Trump.
I just want @DevinNunes to know.
