On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to impeach outgoing President Donald Trump for his role in inciting the violent insurrection on the United States Capitol last week that left at least five people dead.
The impeachment is as unprecedented as the carnage that spurred it, with Trump becoming the first President in U.S. history to be impeached more than once. With 10 House Republicans voting in favor of the resolution, it's also the most bipartisan impeachment in American history.
In response to the development, Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, is seeing a tweet of hers resurface for how poorly it aged.

Days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced the first impeachment inquiry of Trump for pressuring the Ukrainian President to investigate then-candidate Joe Biden, Lara Trump shared an electoral map dominated by red counties with the caption "Try to impeach this."
As CNN pointed out when Trump himself shared it a month later, the map is factually incorrect. It's also misleading, falsely implying that Trump's victory margin was wide, though he lost the popular vote in 2016 by millions.
All that aside, Democrats did try to "impeach this," and they succeeded. Twice.
Star Wars actor Mark Hamill didn't hesitate to point this out.

Then again, trolling Lara Trump's poorly aged tweet was like shooting womp rats in a T-16.

While Trump has been impeached, his trial in the Senate isn't expected to take place until after President-elect Biden is inaugurated on January 20th.
