The impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump has the whole world watching. It doubles as a political showdown that will surely go down in the history books, memorialized not only by the transcripts and televised public hearings, but also the memes.
A number of witnesses have now testified publicly before Congress about allegations that Trump used $400 million in military aid to Ukraine as leverage for his own political and personal gain.
Though some have dismissed the hearings as boring, the internet has had plenty to say about the developments of the impeachment probe — from the moment that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the inquiry at the end of September, to this week’s bombshell hearings.
Here are some of the best memes from the impeachment inquiry so far:
The simple word of „impeachment“ made its way into funny puns, including one by singer Lizzo.
People made Pelosi into a meme when she first announced the impeachment inquiry.

Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman testified in the second public hearing, but people noticed a reporter chugging her coffee as Vindman delivered his testimony.

„Coffee.“ It’s probably whiskey.
Alexa, could you please find me the best tasting coffee known to humankind?#impeachment#VindmanTestimonypic.twitter.com/ILmzmRPw0f
Watching this mysterious woman chug her coffee, notice she’s on camera, and then finish chugging it is a lot more interesting than the actual testimony. #ImpeachmentHearing #impeachment #CNN pic.twitter.com/FmdB61vzfH
Gordon Sondland, US Ambassador to the European Union, testified on Nov. 20 in the third day of public hearings, delivering one of the most damning testimonies of the impeachment probe — all with a smile on his face.

After Sondland’s testimony, Trump spoke to reporters with speaking notes in hand. The memo, written in Sharpie, prompted the internet to meme-ify it.
