A whirlwind 36 hours of dizzying news regarding President Donald Trump's efforts to recruit Ukraine in sullying the reputation of 2020 Democratic frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden, culminated today with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announcing an official impeachment inquiry after months of resisting the effort.

Watch below.


The decision came after 30 House Democrats, many of them in swing states, came out in support of impeachment proceedings in the last 24 hours alone.

President Donald Trump returned to Trump Tower in New York City after addressing the United Nations General Assembly just in time to catch Pelosi's announcement, and—judging by his Twitter—he didn't miss a moment of it.

The President and his allies have admitted in the past few days that Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden's family in a July phone conversation, and that the President withheld a $391 million military aid package approximately a week before the call.

Trump announced today that he'll be releasing a transcript of the call with Zelensky, but lawmakers and political observers are insisting that a transcript from a President who once edited an official weather map with a sharpie would be unreliable. What's more, they argue that without the contents of the whistleblower complaint deemed by the Intelligence Community Inspector General to be "urgent," the transcript alone would be insufficient.

This is just the beginning.

"Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos..."

Heath Ledger's Joker says this in 2008's The Dark Knight but it could also apply to the presidency of Donald Trump. From defying subpoenas, introducing sweeping policy changes to his own staff through tweets, fostering a revolving-door administration, abruptly deserting allies, and, of course, the ceaseless bullying.

The President and the Clown Prince of Crime have both been agents of some degree of chaos.

So it may not come as a surprise that the Joker joins the campaign of a Trump-like character in the latest issue of Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child.
