On Friday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi joined HBO show host Bill Maher to brag about her impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Pelosi, who has constantly stated that she is "somber" about impeaching President Trump, giggled and bragged about her decision to impeach the President.
“You’re impeached forever. It can never be erased," Pelosi said to Maher.
This isn't the only recent example showing Pelosi's excitement regarding President Trump's impeachment. While signing the articles of impeachment to send over to the Senate, Pelosi gave a big smile and passed out impeachment pens.
“So sad, so tragic for our country that the actions taken by the president undermined our national security, to violate his oath of office, and to jeopardize the security of our elections, the integrity of our elections, has taken us to this place,” Pelosi said. “So, today we will make history when the managers walk down the hallway, we will cross a threshold in history, delivering articles of impeachment against the President of the United States for abuse of power and obstruction of the House.”

Pelosi continued: “Yes, it is a fact: When someone is impeached, they are always impeached. It cannot be erased. So I stand by that comment, although I know you don’t like hearing it.”
Many people including some on the left, took the opportunity to slam the Speaker.
CNN reporter Lauren Fox took wrote, “So many pens that Pelosi will sign to officially transmit the articles of impeachment and sign resolution appointing House managers. Why so many? They will be given away to members like House managers as a symbol of today.”
Rep. Mark Meadows also hammered the Speaker, saying, “They claim it’s a somber, serious occasion they’re heartbroken over… and then they pass out impeachment-signing pens with special cases. Folks. You can’t make it up.”
Shortly before the signing party, Pelosi announced who she selected to be the "impeachment managers."
The selections were none other than far-left Democrats House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, along with Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Val Demings (D-FL), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Jason Crow (D-CO), and Sylvia Garcia (D-TX). Schiff will be the leader out of the group.
“Today is an important day,” Pelosi said during a press conference. “The emphasis is making the strongest possible case to protect and defend our constitution, to seek the truth for the American people.”
