A formal impeachment inquiry has been launched by Congress over Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukraine’s president.

The president said on Tuesday night that he had authorised the release of the “complete, fully declassified and unredacted” transcript of his phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky in an attempt to quell the criticism.

People online have seemingly been overwhelmed by serious news (climate change, Brexit, Boris Johnson's recent defeat in court over proroguing parliament), rendering this latest development an opportunity for light-hearted humour.

Fair enough.

Some were more NSFW than others...

There's also this irony...
