Chrissy Teigen was among the celebrities reacting to news Donald Trump has become the first US president to be impeached twice.
On Wednesday, news broke that Trump had been impeached again, with 10 representatives from his own Republican party voting to impeach him, following deadly riots at the US Capitol building that later saw Trump accused of ‘inciting violence’.
Impeachment means the president’s powers have been suspended for the last few days he in his office until new president elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Stars came out in force on Twitter following the news, with model Chrissy – who has never been shy when it comes to voicing her opinions of Trump – teasing that she thought being impeached was like ‘dying’.
She told her followers: ‘I didn’t even know you could be impeached twice. I thought it was like dying.’
Star Wars actor Mark Hamill – famed for playing Luke Skywalker – tweeted a picture of Trump pulling a face and posted alongside it: ‘When one impeachment won’t suffice, Damn his new crimes- impeach him twice! #DarnOldDonald’
Trump was previously impeached in 2019, but he was acquitted at his trial in February 2020. An impeachment conviction differs from a criminal conviction and doesn’t result in judicial punishment.
