Twitter Calls for Trump Impeachment With #25thAmendmentNow

”He’s demented & incompetent. Congress needs to act,“ tweets one user

A Trump-centered wrestling meme has KO’ed a lot of people, but not in the way the POTUS had hoped. Now, the meme has many demanding his impeachment.

On Sunday, Trump shared a video clip of a 2007 wrestling match between him and WWE CEO, Vince McMahon — only with the CNN logo superimposed over McMahon’s head. The altered video imagines the president putting the smackdown on one of his least favorite news outlets.

Trump has never been cryptic about his hatred of CNN. But his critics saw this meme as a direct call for violence against the media. The outrage has spawned several Twitter hashtags calling for the president’s impeachment: #25thAmendmentNow, #25thAmendment and #25for45.

The 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution outlines the process of impeachment, where Congress can vote to remove a president from office if he/she is found “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

Los Angelenos took to the street Sunday for what they’re calling the Impeachment March.

Shock and anger have flowed freely on Twitter, with many users demanding immediate impeachment.
