The delusional, egotistical monster that is Donald Trump celebrated his birthday this week. And while, in the past, we’d celebrate our President’s day of birth with respect and admiration. Under Trump’s horrendous tenure as POTUS, the only thing we want to see happen is an impeachment.

Wanting to show Donald some “love” on his day of birth, Chrissy Teigen tweeted, “John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration.”
Adding, “These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent. The ACLU is committed to defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families. In addition to fighting for immigrants’ rights, they’re advocating for reproductive rights, voting rights, criminal justice reform, LGBT rights, 1st amendment rights and holding the Trump administration accountable whenever possible.”
The impassioned statement concluded by saying, “The President celebrates his 72nd birthday today. On this auspicious occasion, in order to Make Trump’s Birthday Great Again, each member of our family has donated $72,000 to the ACLU. If you would like to donate $7.20, $72, or whatever you like to the ACLU in honor of this blessed day, please go to www.aclu.org/72. With love, Chrissy, John, Luna and Miles.”
Needless to say, it took seconds before Americans were offering up similar sentiments of their own.
