Trump Just Tweeted: How Do You Impeach Someone As Great As Me?

Donald Trump hit Twitter on Wednesday morning and acknowledged Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent statement that she has no current plans to pursue impeachment proceedings against the commander in chief.

In an interview with The Washington Post’s Joe Helm, Pelosi said of Trump and possible impeachment:

“I’m not for impeachment…he’s just not worth it.”

This comment got a lot of attention on the cable news airwaves over the past 24 hours which almost certainly got Trump’s attention and led to his early Wednesday comment via two-part mini-tweetstorm.

It’s not clear who Trump is citing when he claims that many consider him to be “the President with the most successful first two years in history,” though surely his most fervent base of support think that, despite disapproval ratings that are still greater than approval ratings.

Also worth noting that twice Trump asserts that he “never did anything wrong,” though in both first-person and third-person points of view, perhaps to cover all bases.

It’s an interesting political strategy for a sitting president to openly discuss possible impeachment proceedings and underlines the theory that President Trump intends to run for reelection in 2020 against impeachment.

So what we see here is the leader of the Republican party raising the specter of impeachment, while the ostensible leader of the Democratic party tamping down impeachment talk.
