Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg abruptly announced the end of his presidential bid on Sunday night after Saturday night's South Carolina primaries.

Mayor Pete's candidacy marked the first time in history an openly LGBTQ person had been a serious contender for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.

Sadly, that's not why President Donald Trump's eldest yet most childish son—Donald Trump Jr.—congratulated the mayor on Twitter.

Head House impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) made waves earlier this month while presenting his case against President Donald Trump.

Schiff cited a CBS report that Republican Senators were warned that their heads would be "on a pike" if any of them voted to convict the President.

Moderate Republican Senators were furious when Schiff mentioned the report on the Senate floor, quickly denying there had been any strong-arming or threats of retaliation if their votes didn't align with the rest of the Republican majority. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said of Schiff's comment, "That's where he lost me." Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) shouted "That's not true" from her seat.

Both eventually voted to acquit the President.

Republicans in the Senate have used the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump to smear former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter for his board appointment to a Ukrainian gas company called Burisma Holdings.

Trump famously urged the Ukrainian president to announce an investigation into Burisma and the Bidens while Trump withheld congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine.

President Donald Trump recently paid $2 million in damages after an order from a New York state judge. The tax-exempt Trump Foundation misused funds meant for charity, instead buying portraits of Donald Trump, paying off Trump's lawyers, and partially funding his 2016 presidential campaign.

However, the judge's ruling doesn't just address the President—but his children as well.

George Conway, husband of Trump senior advisor Kellyanne Conway and masterful Twitter critic of the president, made headlines this week by taking his criticism of Trump off Twitter and onto the airwaves, serving as an impeachment hearing commentator for MSNBC.

Donald Trump, Jr. did not take kindly to that, as he made clear on Twitter in a tense back and forth for the ages.

President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was heckled by members of a conservative student group at an event promoting his new book, Triggered, prompting him and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, to leave the event an hour and a half early.

Predictably, there were anti-Trump protestors outside of the event at the University of California, but inside the event, which was organized by Trump-supporting Turning Point USA, the young MAGA crowd turned against Don Jr. after learning that he and Guilfoyle would not be taking questions.
