This Wednesday, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff gave his opening argument at President Trump's Senate impeachment trial.
“When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits—despotic in his ordinary demeanor—known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty—when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity—to join in the cry of danger to liberty—to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion—to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day—It may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ‘ride the storm and direct the whirlwind,'" Schiff said while reading from his prepared remarks.
As Schiff read his argument, Trump took to Twitter and sarcastically wrote in all caps, "NO PRESSURE."

Never hesitant to point out the irony in Trump's remarks, Twitter piled on, with some referencing Trump's past complaints about the water pressure of showers, sinks and, yes, toilets:
