On Tuesday, Pres. Donald “Crybaby” Trump sent a six-page letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) objecting to the impeachment process. In short, he said that Democrats in Congress have “cheapened the importance of the very ugly word.”
Unfortunately, he’s a day late and a dollar short (just like he was in all of his business dealings) because the impeachment vote is tomorrow. In the letter, he basically projected and accused House Democrats of doing exactly what he’s about to be impeached for doing: “unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power.”
Dear Pres. Butthurt: I don’t think that means what you think it means.
Spoiler alert: The #trumpletter is not something innocent people write.

In the letter, he actually calls the impeachment (which is going to be formalized by a vote tomorrow) an “impeachment fantasy.” No. See, a fantasy is something that’s not real. What’s happening tomorrow is very very real. Deliciously real.
“It is time for you and the highly partisan Democrats in Congress to immediately cease this impeachment fantasy and get back to work for the American People. While I have no expectation that you will do so, I write this letter to you for the purpose of history and to put my thoughts on a permanent and indelible record,” Trump wrote.
“Immediately cease.” (Giggle)
#TrumpLetter "Trump to Pelosi"
Then on #ImpeachmentEve, he said he was doing all this so it will never happen to another POTUS again.
Then he demanded Nancy to cancel his own #Impeachment
Should we call in the Coach 😢

Trump used the letter to list his own achievements, bash Robert Mueller (again), and to “rant and rave” as Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) put it.
“This is nothing more than an illegal, partisan attempted coup that will, based on recent sentiment, badly fail at the voting booth. You are not just after me, as President, you are after the entire Republican Party,” Trump wrote. “History will judge you harshly as you proceed with this impeachment charade.”
Actually, history may or may not remember our amazing Speaker Pelosi. Who actually remembers Speakers from previous decades? But what history will remember is that this mofo was I M P E A C H E D. Woot!
Just tried to read the #trumpletter to #Pelosi. I stopped in the middle of page two. 🤦🏽♀️it’s like a girl who sends a guy an extremely long txt during an argument and the guy just reads the last sentence. Pelosi would be the #MVP if she just wrote a letter back that said “K”.

“You are the ones interfering in America’s election. You are the ones subverting America’s Democracy. You are the ones Obstructing Justice,” Trump wrote. “You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our Republic for your own selfish personal, political, and partisan gain.”
Why is “Obstructing” and “Justice” capitalized in that sentence? Nice use of the Oxford Comma, though. But ouch on all of the double spaces after periods. An editor’s nightmare. Ugh.

“More due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials,” Trump wrote Tuesday.
That would be a lie. However, unlike the poor accused witches, Trump was absolutely invited to the House party, and BTW, he declined to chime in officially and share his side of the story.
Trump stated that "more due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials."
I'm confused. I must have missed the part of the congressional hearings when they threw him in the water tied up to see if he floated.#TrumpLetter

"More due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials" – DJT
Salem Witch Trials "due process": Dunk 'em in water, if they float, kill 'em.
Trumps due process: Repeated offers to have witnesses speak on his behalf and exonerate him.

“Before the Impeachment Hoax, it was the Russian Witch Hunt.”
Most unnecessary capitalization. But he had a good reason for writing it, he said.
“One hundred years from now, when people look back at this affair, I want them to understand it, and learn from it, so that it can never happen to another President again.”
Here’s our Speaker’s reaction to the letter: “no reaction…it’s ridiculous” and “really sick.”
Pelosi's first reaction to Trump's letter. "I don't have a reaction. It's ridiculous," she told me. I asked her why no reaction: "I mean, I haven't full read it. We've been working. I've seen the essence of it. It's really sick." pic.twitter.com/pPhvsb0axh

Here’s the letter for you to read for yourself. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this article to read Twitter’s reaction to this dummy’s letter to Speaker Pelosi. But as you read the letter, keep this in mind: it’s not for you. It’s for his ignorant base.
The #TrumpLetter isn't for you.
It's for his MAGA voters.
They speak his language.
He speaks theirs.
It's a language spread by rightwing media.
Until you get that, nothing will change.

Donald Trump to Pelosi:
He finally provides a document that offers proof he needs to be impeached.
A rambling incoherent letter illustrating his instability, mentioning the Salem Witch Trials, her abuse of power, and not praying for him… #ImpeachmentEve #Trumpletter pic.twitter.com/HKzypb5z4K

The #trumpletter is not grounds for impeachment. It is grounds for the 25 Amendment NOW. Any future damage or lives this man causes rests on those who have the power to stop him and have sworn an oath they need to uphold. History will not judge them well – and neither will we.

The Unabomber wrote better than what’s in that letter. Truth.#trumpletter

Read #trumpletter as if Saddam, Kim Jong Un or Gaddafi wrote it. I'm serious. Just do it as an experiment. It's the deranged, fevered, conspiratorial rage rant of an authoritarian. https://t.co/lbrAOgCz47

Honestly, the letter to Erdogan was better. #trumpletter

It is ridiculous. It reads like a scorned lover admonishing his partner and pointing out how wonderful he is. The guy is a joke.
— Christine T. (@mambatuley) December 17, 2019
I thought the same thing! While reading it I was picturing a terrible partner just going balls to the wall flipping out on their ex as their relationship ends.
