Trump Launches ‘Stop The Coup’ Impeachment Hashtag But Twitter Users Aren’t Having It

President Donald Trump struggled mightily Saturday to kick off a sympathetic “Stop The Coup” hashtag — but the strategy blew up in his face.

Trump was attempting to equate the House impeachment inquiry with an illegal coup d’etat.

(“Stop the Coup” also became the slogan and hashtag for Brits opposed to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s suspension of Parliament in August amid his battle to get the U.K. out of the European Union.)
