For the first time in the history of the United States, a President has been impeached twice. On Jan. 13, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection,” something that was widely expected following the recent riots at the Capitol. One day before the House’s vote, the outgoing President said his words just prior to the riot were “totally appropriate” and didn’t incite his followers, but the Representatives didn’t buy it. Although the vote was mostly along party lines, 10 Republicans voted for impeachment, which they didn’t do during his first impeachment in December 2019. After the second impeachment, many in Hollywood reacted on social media. Chrissy Teigen, who was actually blocked by Trump on Twitter, wrote, “I didn’t even know you could be impeached twice. I thought it was like dying.” Click through to see who else is commenting on the historical moment..
