President Joe Biden’s reaction to the recent impeachment inquiry launched by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has sparked various reactions from social media. Here’s the full story.
“Lots of Luck.”
A reporter outside the White House asked President Biden, “What is your response to Republicans opening an impeachment inquiry into you?”
President Biden responded with a wide grin and a hearty laugh before saying, “Lots of luck.”
This response came in the wake of McCarthy’s announcement of an inquiry into potentially illegal foreign business dealings involving the President and his son, Hunter Biden.
Inquiry the “Logical Next Step”
McCarthy framed the inquiry as the “logical next step” to seek answers for the American public regarding allegations of abuse of power.
He said, “I believe the president would want to answer these questions and allegations, as well.”
“These are allegations of abuse of power, obstruction and corruption. They warrant further investigation by the House of Representatives,” he added.
“I’ve Got a Job to Do.”
However, the President has denied all allegations and said, “Everybody always asks about impeachment. I get up every day, not a joke, not focused on impeachment.”
“I’ve got a job to do. I’ve got to deal with the issues that affect the American people every single solitary day,” he added.
Donald Trump, President Biden’s rival, shared his thoughts on the impeachment inquiry during an interview with Megyn Kelly.
Trump suggested that the Republicans might view this inquiry as a form of retaliation against the Democrats for impeaching him in 2019 and again in 2021.
“I think had they not done it to me, and I’m very popular, they like me and I like them, the Republican Party, perhaps you wouldn’t have it being done to them,” Trump said.
“And this is going to happen with indictments, too. … And it’s a shame when that happens. I’m not in favor of that, but that’s what’s going to happen because that’s human nature,” he added.
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “I think he has been told by the smartest addict he knows that the shell companies will take years to unravel. We shall see.”
Another user added, “Luck is nothing more than preparation intersecting opportunity. I’m confident that Luck will see this corrupt traitor face true justice sooner than later.”
“Everyone Is Covering for Him”
A third user commented, “Everyone is covering for him. He knows he is untouchable because he is protected by the deep state and the press.”
A fourth user wrote, “Hopefully Racist Joe Biden, leader of the Racist Democrat Party, is finally going down for all his corrupt traitorous behavior. Just need to start flipping Racist Joe’s family members, but with the current corrupt DOJ, “lots of luck” is what the American people are going to need.”
