The country is approaching the one-month anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration as president, but it feels more like the 10-year anniversary. If I tried to recount all of the issues plaguing the still-new administration, I wouldn't even get to the point of this article: which is, by the way, the Trump Impeachment Party memes that are now erupting all over Twitter.
Yes, we're not even a month in, and it's already gotten to this point. There's the incessant lying to the public on matters big and small; the blatant disrespect from the presidency towards the judicial branch; and, of course, the shadowy and as yet unexplained connections between Russia and the Trump administration. Oh, and did I mention Trump's potential violations of the Emoluments clause? Because there's that, too.
Well, as if you didn't already see this coming, Twitter has started to put things together. And when these are the issues dogging a presidency at this point, it becomes clear that it's never too early to call for the president's impeachment. And more importantly, it's never too early to start thinking about how exactly a Trump impeachment party would make you feel, and react. The last year or so has been a bit of a trial for everyone — and in these memes, you'll find at least the beginnings of some catharsis.

I think it's likely this will be Stephen Colbert's face then as well, to be honest.
2Running The Presidency Like A Reality Show Has Its Drawbacks
It's comforting that "Apprentice: White House" may not be in its first of 4 seasons; it just might be a MINI-SERIES! #TrumpImpeachmentParty— MovieJay (@MovieJay) February 15, 2017
Everyone's saying it was the worst White House ever — SAD!
3They Can Work Out The Reasoning Later
Trump himself does have a point for once, though.
4Can I Celebrate Even If It's Not A Real Thing Yet?
Yes. Yes, you can.

Any reason is a good reason. Do it!#TrumpImpeachmentParty
Just look at Justin Trudeau — effective leaders clearly have better hair than that.

Trump hasn't gone on the record saying those exact words yet, but it wouldn't be the craziest thing he's ever said.

The Impeachment Party could get some seriously impressive sponsors, I reckon.
10Beautiful, Huge, Bigly
All the best people are coming to the Impeachment Party.
11Maybe This Will Be Trump's Face At The Party Too
Conducting state business in full view of phone cameras? And sitting through it with a blithe smile? Seriously, nothing gets to this guy — oh, wait.
12Let's Go Back To Entrance Planning
The options are just endless.

18There Are, Let's Say, Some Downsides
Hardcore, ideological conservative with a terrible record on women's rights, or a raving lunatic? Is this really the choice in front of us?
19It Could Be Only A Matter Of Time
Links to a foreign, antagonistic government? Not cool, dudes. When's the next domino going to fall?
20Ideally This Will Happen Soon
Is there enough time to plan #TrumpImpeachmentParty so that 45 can beat the William Henry Harrison record???— Kylee Dingo (@kyleethedingo) February 15, 2017
William Henry Harrison died of pneumonia on his 32nd day as president, so his record will probably stand... unless we hurry.
21Guys, I'm Not Sure If He Gets It
22It's Always Someone Else's Fault
The "blame Hillary" thing is a bit tired, Mr. President.

29This Has Got To Happen
I want to see this moment so badly.
Yes, I know there's a long way to go before there's even the remote chance of a Trump impeachment happening. And I know that Pence would be in the next in line. And I know it would not be a great moment for the country. But just for a minute, #TrumpImpeachmentParty has given me a sliver of hope.
