You’ve likely heard by now that yesterday the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald J. Trump by 229 to 197, making him just the third president in American history to be impeached.
Now, it’s off to the Senate, where it will take at least 67 votes to remove Trump from office, which nobody is really expecting will happen. But at least history will look back on this time and know that someone tried doing the right thing.
The whole fiasco has inspired tons of memes. So without any further ado scroll through for the best impeachment memes (so far!)…

?? President Donald J. Trump was impeached on Wednesday. For the third time in the nation's history, the House of Representatives voted to impeach a sitting president, following a day-long debate on whether Trump violated his oath in pressuring Ukraine to damage a political opponent. Trump was impeached on two articles. The first vote, 230-197, was to impeach him for abuse of power and was almost entirely on party lines; it was followed quickly by a second 229-198 vote that the president obstructed Congress. One Democrat, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is running for president, voted "present" on both articles.
