The twitterati went impeachment crazy earlier today as tweets conflated Donald Trump’s impeachment with the Christmas season. Indeed, all across the land of the free, Merry Impeachmas tweets rang out.
Along with photos of impromptu street gatherings to call for impeachment, tweeters also tweeted impeachmas cards and impeachmas carols.
Above all others, The Twelfth Day of Impeachmas proved most popular.
On the 12th day of #Impeachmas
my Congress gave to me:
12 Criers Crying,
11 Whiners Whining,
10 Liars a Lying,
9 Louie’s Ramblings,
8 Gaetz a Drinking,
7 Freaks a Freaking,
6 Wimps a Trembling,
5 Donald Tweets,
4 Shouting Dougs,
3 Dense Men,
2 Crazy Bluffs,
and a dotard being impeached.
Some, of course, worried about the choice of an appropriate greeting.
Is it “Happy Impeachment” or is it “Merry Impeachment?”
I don’t want to offend anyone.

Of course, Impeachment vodka is a must
Of course, corporate America is no slouch at jumping in where there’s a dollar to be made. Before you could say Orange Cheeto Jesus, Absolut Vodka jumped on the impeachment wagon in an attempt to make one of their products the official drink of the celebration.

Some people decided to DIY their celebratory drinks, however. As the president previously showed us, who needs facts when you have a sharpie.

But, not content with the head of the new Messiah, some tweeters went after Santa’s little helpers as well. Of course, you can’t forget the enablers! Perhaps our government will make room at Villawood or on Manus Island for when the Trump family seek asylum.

Three years ago they stood on a stage & gloated obnoxiously over their new ‘dynasty.’ They were gonna be like the Kennedys. Now they’re just a bunch of corrupt traitors w/a toxic legacy for the rest of eternity. And they deserve it all. My how things change #Trump #ImpeachmentEve pic.twitter.com/HAbaxHVic0

Meanwhile, Americans the length and breadth of the country turned out for impeachmas vigils and protests on Impeachmas Eve. Indeed, apparently even Santa supports impeachment.

Thank you to all the #ImpeachmentEve demonstrators across the U.S. y’all showed up and showed out. I’m so proud to be a Democrat.

Despite his outrage, Trump is third President Impeached
Trump, of course, is not the first president to be impeached. Previously, Bill Clinton and Andrew Jackson suffered the same indignity. Even during the course of such a momentous day, some paused to pay lip service to that history.

#MERRYIMPEACHMAS! Every single #lying #complicit @GOP member needs to be VOTED OUT OF OFFICE too. Watch out mitch, an 18% job approval rating not good for you. @SpeakerPelosi @realDonaldTrump @senatemajldr pic.twitter.com/IReGiCtqD1

Nevertheless, it is yet to be seen how impeachment plays out. Of course, Trump is the most unpredictable president ever, unbound by normal convention and any notion of civility.
Indeed, even in Australia, devotees refuse to acknowledge any failing on the part of the US president and slavishly worship the man.
All we can do is wait and watch from afar as much of our world goes up in flames and all our little Neros fiddle while Rome burns.
However, what will be will be — Merry Impeachmas.
