Amid the ongoing impeachment trial at the US Senate, President Donald Trump is making news with his bizarre meme targeting his predecessor Barack Obama. On Friday (IST), the US President posted a morphed photo mocking Obama. In the pic, Trump was seen leaning against a marble wall while Obama was seen looking through binoculars. Obama is shown dangerously hanging from the window using suction cup. As of writing this, Trump’s pinned post had garnered 36K retweets and 134K likes. Initially, several people were puzzled as to what was the post all about. Then Fox News presenter Sean Hannity decoded the meme. Just before he signed off from his evening show, Hannity said that this tweet was about Trump’s claims that Obama used to spy on him.
“The president just tweeted this. This is Donald Trump at Trump Tower and there is Barack Obama with binoculars spying in on Trump. The president just tweeted that out based on the news. Yeah, they spied on him. The media got it wrong. They mocked him, just like they laughed at the idea he could be president,” Hannity said on the micro-blogging site.
Obviously, Twitter had strong feelings about this meme. Many people lambasted Trump for mocking Obama. Trump has repeatedly said that he will be acquitted in the Senate trial. He has said that the hearing was nothing but the wastage of time. So, how Twitter reacted to Trump’s Obama-mocking meme? Here are some of the best tweets:
So you’re saying Obama has the upper body strength to climb up skyscrapers while you need to lean against faux marble ?— Roland Scahill (@rolandscahill) January 24, 2020

Donald Trump is obsessed with Barack Obama -- in a really unhealthy and creepy way.
Trump cannot stand the fact that...
1. Obama's wife adores him
2. His kids love him
3. World leaders respect him
4. He won a Nobel Prize
5. He's a successful black man pic.twitter.com/SAWmYAs5XS

Meanwhile, Lead House impeachment manager Adam Schiff called dramatically for the Senate to remove President Donald Trump from office Thursday, saying the US leader cannot be trusted to put the country's interests ahead of his own. "The American people deserve a president they can count on, to put their interest first," said Schiff. His impassioned words capped a long day in which Democrats detailed Trump's illicit scheme to pressure Ukraine to help his 2020 reelection campaign.
As the 100 senators sat as jurors and millions of Americans watched on television, House impeachment managers mustered scores of videos, internal documents and extensive witness testimony to lay out a strong case that the US leader abused his powers. Schiff's prosecution team detailed how Trump flagrantly undertook last year to force Kiev to help him tarnish his possible 2020 reelection rival, former vice president Joe Biden.
Democrats are hoping their arguments will at least persuade some Republicans, who hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate, to support their call to issue subpoenas next week for four top current and former Trump aides to testify, and for internal White House records about the Ukraine affair.
