On Wednesday, December 18, Donald Trump became the third president in United States history to be impeached after a vote in the House of Representatives. Soon after the news was announced, the real estate mogul-turned-president, 73, took to Twitter to slam “crazy” Democrats for their “evil” actions — but it didn’t take long for left-wing celebrities to fire back.
“I expected this moment but I expected to be more joyful. Maybe jump up & do a happy dance. Maybe. But I’m just sad and heartbroken,” Charmed actress Alyssa Milano tweeted. “What he’s left behind can’t be erased with this vote. The bigotry and xenophobia he’s emboldened. The lies. It will take generations to recover.”
Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi led the impeachment resolution debate, shushing Democrats as soon as they began cheering, arguing that no one should celebrate such a grave constitutional matter. Trump was then impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
“No one is above the law, Mr. President,” she tweeted after the decision was reached.
