Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) fired off an attempted snappy defense of former president Donald Trump, and was swiftly met with mockery and ridicule.

The Florida Republican tweeted out the would-be rejoinder to the impeachment House Democrats will carry to the Senate for trial, set for Feb. 8.

"Impeachment is the zenith of cancel culture," Gaetz tweeted.

Other social media users cringed.
