President Donald Trump was harshly criticized online after retweeting his 2020 campaign outing the identity of the White House whistleblower.
There were calls for it be a new article of impeachment and for Twitter to ban the commander-in-chief’s account.
Here’s some of what people were saying:

Given his escalating rage and erratic behavior, this was probably inevitable, but please don’t let that distract from the fact that this is truly deplorable and should deeply concern every American.https://t.co/HZ3wdPb2Bk

Twitter proves trump’s claim that he can stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any voters. At best, they’re enablers.

He couldn’t help himself, I guess. https://t.co/NrxblahoiJ

Another crime to add to the list.

Isn’t outing a whistleblower a crime?

Just what Jesus would have done.

Guessing he’s not getting it. More impeaching to follow.

After this is over
let’s hope the line “I was the whistleblower” gets this guy laid for the next few decades

There should be a 2nd impeachment just for this. He’s losing it. Totally out of control.
