IMPEACHMENT/MEDIA/SOCIAL MEDIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Just hours before a House panel was set to approve articles of impeachment against him, President Donald Trump flexed his Twitter fingers, blasting out more than 100 tweets and retweets covering everything from the impeachment proceedings and trade to his Mar-a-Lago resort and his upset for Time magazine’s Person of the Year honor. The deluge began, as most Trump tweetstorms do, with a reference to a segment on Fox News’ ‘Fox & Friends’ at 6:51 a.m. Touting a new poll that found just over half of registered voters oppose impeaching the president, Trump claimed: ‘I did nothing wrong. This will be the first Impeachment ever where there was no crime. They don’t even allege a crime. Crazy!’ From there, they just kept coming, with the president pumping out more than 80 in a three-hour span.”
