"Twice."

It's official: Donald Trump is the greatest President in US history.... at getting impeached.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted 232-197 in favor — including ten Republicans — making him the first ever POTUS to be impeached twice.

Reaction among celebrity Twitter was as swift as it was brutal.

Moments after Wednesday's vote, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell rejected calls to summon Senators back to Washington early for the second impeachment trial, instead waiting until at their first regular meeting at the very earliest on January 19.

He claimed there was "simply no chance that a fair or serious trial" before the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20.

"This is not a decision I am making; it is a fact," he said. "The President-Elect himself stated last week that his inauguration on January 20 is the 'quickest' path for any change in the occupant of the presidency."

Unlike the simple majority of the House, a two-thirds majority is needed in the Senate to convict Trump. This would require the support of several GOP Senators, many of whom have not ruled that out — including McConnell himself.
