On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump went on live TV and did the exact thing that Democrats in the House are currently looking to impeach him over – he asked foreign leaders to investigate his political rivals.
House Democrats are seeking to impeach Trump after news broke that he asked the Presidents of Ukraine (and since then, China) to dig up dirt and investigate former VP Joe Biden and his son based on unsubstantiated assertions of corrupt behavior and conspiracy theories he likely learned on Fox News.
“I would think that if they were honest about it they’d start a major investigation into the Bidens,” Trump said to reporters Thursday on live TV.
One of Trump’s former political rivals, Popular Vote Winner Hillary Clinton, took the opportunity to point out Trump’s stupidity:
Someone should inform the president that impeachable offenses committed on national television still count. https://t.co/ABObD2Ie4S

Of course I, like most Americans, would rather have Hillary as President than the bumbling, corrupt idiot we have, but private citizen Hillary is pretty badass on Twitter, so we’ll have to take the small victories where we get them.
