U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday (January 17) dropped some impeachment banter during a college football reception at the White House, joking “they are trying to impeach the son of a bitch, can you believe that?”
The president used the colorful language while inviting the college football national champion LSU (Louisiana State University) team to have their pictures taken at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.
The impeachment trial formally got underway on Thursday (January 16), though it will start in earnest on Tuesday (January 21) with opening statements. The trial in the Republican-led Senate will determine whether Trump is removed from office.
