A grandma has won over the internet with her birthday wish: for someone – anyone – to impeach US president Donald Trump.
Grandma Winnie has become viral sensation after a video clip of her throwing a Make America Great Again hat made its way online.
Taking to Twitter – the US president’s favourite platform for communication – she said:
Hi! I’m grandma Winnie. I’m 100 years old. And all I want for my birthday is for someone to impeach this sucker.
At the end of the video she chucks the MAGA cap away.
People online are here for the rebellious grandma
Even rapper Ice T agreed with Winnie.
Half of Americans support impeaching Donald Trump and removing him from office, a CNN poll has found.
Of the national sample of 1,003 people, 57 per cent disapproved of Trump’s handling of the presidency and 41 per cent said they approved.
Fifty per cent of respondents said Mr Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 43 per cent said they do not feel that way, the highest proportion so far. Seven per cent had no opinion.
This comes as former US ambassador William Taylor was expected to testify on Capitol Hill on Tuesday before growing alarmed.
“I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” he wrote in excerpts of text messages released by impeachment investigators in Congress.
Taylor is scheduled to testify behind closed doors in the inquiry, which was launched to find out if is Trump committed impeachable offences by encouraging the president of Ukraine into finding information that could help his campaign while Trump withheld military aid to the Eastern European country.
