'Say a prayer!': Trump gets religious in major meltdown just hours before he will be impeached

President Donald Trump knows in just hours he will formally be impeached and will forever wear that asterisk of shame. It’s clearly devastating to him. Overnight to 45th president, soon to be the first to ever be impeached in his first term, had a Twitter meltdown, which continued Wednesday morning.

This one was different. After dozens upon dozens of tweets over the past few years offering “thoughts and prayers” to victims of mass shootings and disasters, Trump is now asking his supporters to pray for him.

“Can you believe that I will be impeached today by the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, AND I DID NOTHING WRONG! A terrible Thing. Read the Transcripts. This should never happen to another President again. Say a PRAYER!” the president urged.

Trump deleted an earlier similar typo-laden tweet and in the new one wrote “PRAYER” in all-caps.

Responses were less than sympathetic.
