The impeachment trial is underway Tuesday morning, and already, what is transpiring has people, including the president, speaking out about how they feel things are going. Schiff is being hailed online for his opening statement for the prosecution, and that apparently has the Donald Trump hopping mad.
Check out what the president just screamed on Twitter:
READ THE TRANSCRIPTS!

This is what has the president acting a fool. Schiff said in his opening statement:
“IT IS THE PRESIDENT’S APPARENT BELIEF THAT, UNDER ARTICLE 2, HE CAN DO ANYTHING HE WANTS, NO MATTER HOW CORRUPT. AND YET, WHEN THE FOUNDERS WROTE THIS CLAUSE, THEY HAD THIS TYPE OF CONDUCT IN MIND, CONDUCT THAT ABUSES THE POWER OF OFFICE FOR HIS PERSONAL BENEFIT, THAT UNDERMINES OUR NATIONAL SECURITY, THAT INVITES FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN OUR DEMOCRATIC PROCESS OF AN ELECTION. IT IS THE TRIFECTA OF CONSTITUTIONAL MISCONDUCT JUSTIFYING OUR IMPEACHMENT.”
“THE HARM IS THIS: YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANY OF THE EVIDENCE THE PRESIDENT CONTINUES TO CONCEAL THROUGHOUT MOST OR ALL OF THE TRIAL.”

People on Twitter responded immediately to the president’s ridiculous new tagline. We have all read the transcript by now, and it in no way exonerates the president. That’s exactly what people are telling the president in his comment thread too. Check out the best comments below:
