Eric Trump on Friday bragged about the stock market surging at the exact moment when the House Judiciary Committee impeached President Donald Trump.


"It must really infuriate the Democrats that in the middle of this impeachment nonsense, the stock market is off to another record day!" the president's son wrote on Twitter.

Trump's tweet was quickly mocked by his own followers, however, as it seemed to indicate that the markets were rising precisely because his father came one step closer to being impeached in the House of Representatives.
