Don Lemon nearly had a mental breakdown on the air, after President Donald Trump retweeted a video of himself as Thanos trolling House Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced articles of impeachment against the president on Tuesday, alleging abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

In the video, Trump's face is Photoshopped on the body of Marvel Supervillain Thanos, who says, "I am inevitable".

Then a black dust cloud blows Pelosi and the other Democrats off the podium during their press conference.

The video left Don Lemon momentarily speechless and in disbelief. The CNN anchor was apparently furious that Trump took the articles of impeachment so lightly.

“Uh... what are we, in junior high school?" he stammered.

"What the hell. What is this? Like, what? WHAT?! I cannot believe that I'm even having to report this on the news!"

CNN viewers mocked the "drama queen" anchor for reporting the video as news in the first place.

"Slow news day, Don?" one Twitter user wrote.

House Democrats officially announced two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, alleging abuse of power and obstruction.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Committee chairpersons announced the articles of impeachment in a press conference on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

“The framers of the Constitution prescribed a clear remedy for presidents who so violate their oath of office,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. "No one, not even the president, is above the law."

The Democrats claim Trump tried to enlist a foreign power to investigate corruption by presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in the Ukraine.

This makes the third time the Democrats have tried to impeach the president in the last 2 years. The previous two times they were unable to get the votes necessary to proceed with impeachment. But this time they might get lucky.

Nadler said the articles of impeachment meet the Constitutional requirements to charge "the president with high crimes and misdemeanors."

"Trump has engaged in unprecedented, categorical, and indiscriminate defiance of the impeachment inquiry," Nadler said.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif. called impeachment "an extraordinary remedy" that needed to be done.

"He has given us no choice," Schiff said of Trump. "To do nothing would make ourselves complicit in the president's abuse of his high office."

Nadler added that Trump interfered in the 2016 elections, and now the 2020 election.

As usual, Trump fired back with both barrels blasting the inquiry as a "WITCH HUNT".

"Nadler just said that I 'pressured Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 Election.' Ridiculous, and he knows that is not true. Both the President & Foreign Minister of Ukraine said, many times, that there 'WAS NO PRESSURE.' Nadler and the Dems know this, but refuse to acknowledge!" Trump tweeted.

California Senator Kamala Harris has dropped out of the 2020 presidential race. Harris dropped out after her campaign failed to raise enough donations to pay her staff.

Harris reportedly held a conference call with her campaign staff earlier Tuesday in Iowa where she explained that the campaign was having financial struggles.

Her campaign hadn't bought TV ads in months and she was forced to advertise on social media. Last month she laid off most of her campaign staff.

Harris, 55, polled poorly with Black voters who criticized her criminal justice record in California. Harris claimed she fought for criminal justice reform, but her critics say, as a prosecutor, she sent many Black men to prison.

Harris was former President Barack Obama's early choice for the Democratic nomination.

Harris' announcement on Tuesday comes after a disgruntled former staffer wrote a letter saying Harris treated her campaign staff like runaway slaves.

In the letter, obtained by The New York Times, Kelly Mehlenbacher wrote, "This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly."

Mehlenbacher added that she resigned from Harris' campaign because she saw no hope of Harris winning the nomination.

"With less than 90 days until Iowa we still do not have a real plan to win... We have refused to confront our mistakes, foster an environment of critical thinking and honest feedback, or trust the expertise of talented staff."

Harris is married to attorney Douglas Emhoff. They have no children.

Former President Barack Obama reportedly told a Democratic candidate that Joe Biden "really doesn't have" a bond with the voters.

According to Politico's Ryan Lizza, Obama held meetings for Democratic candidates in his Washington, D.C. office earlier this year. The candidates were there seeking advice on how to evict President Donald Trump from the White House in 2020.

Lizza reported that Obama provided advice to candidates he met with. The meetings also gave him a chance to get to know each candidate to determine who is most likely to defeat Trump in next year's election.

According to Lizza's source, Obama offered the candidates advice about their strengths and weaknesses. Obama was reportedly "blunt" and honest with weaker candidates who didn't have what it took to defeat Trump.

"And you know who really doesn't have it? Joe Biden," Obama allegedly said.

Obama repeatedly declined to endorse Biden for President in the past, and he has kept his distance from his former vice president who has insurmountable issues that will weigh him down if he is nominated.
