The Daily Show scrubbed through Trump’s 34,700 tweets, narrowed those down to his 64 “most Trumpy” tweets, and finally 6 million people voted on his “greatest tweet of all time.”
Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?

Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj said:
“This may not be the meanest or the most racist.”
His colleague, Roy Wood Jr., added:
“But it will be the one tweet we will get the answer to in the next four years.”
Trump has a special affinity for posting tweets that do not age well. For example, he tweeted dozens of times about Obama golfing, only to find himself on the golf course 14 times in 10 weeks as President. At this point in Obama’s presidency, he still hadn’t been to the golf course once.
The Daily Show did name two tweets as “honorable mentions.”
How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled "Blackish"? Can you imagine the furor of a show, "Whiteish"! Racism at highest level?

So, lets get this right. Steve Jobs dies and leaves his wife everything-billions of dollars. Now his wife has a boyfriend (lover). Oh Steve!

In response to Trump’s tweet asking if we’re allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence, I certainly hope so.
