“We need Turd Limits,” wrote Kelemen, in a play on term limits.
Greene commented: “Agree! #ImpeachmentTrial.”
All 50 Democrat and six Republican senators voted against Trump in what will likely be a doomed trial because 17 GOP members need to join Democrats in order to convict him.

Greene, who was booted from her two House committee assignments five days ago over her past conspiracy theorist statements, has continued to support Trump.
When a Twitter user flagged Greene’s toilet post to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy as not “appropriate and professional,” she shot back.
“When the Democrats want to start acting appropriately and professionally themselves, and apologize for their hypocrisy and support of riots, instead of continuing their Trump Derangement Syndrome temper tantrums, then I’ll stop sharing memes on their level,” Greene tweeted.

Earlier on Tuesday, Greene seemed to float another conspiracy theory, that people who stormed the Capitol on January 6 were not Trump supporters.
“If the #Jan6 organizers were Trump supporters, then why did they attack us while we were objecting to electoral college votes for Joe Biden?” Greene tweeted.
“The attack RUINED our objection that we spent weeks preparing for, which devastated our efforts on behalf of Trump and his voters.”

Greene continued that the Capitol attack was “planned and organized, NOT incited in the moment by President Trump.”
She said that Trump is the victim of a “witch hunt” that is never-ending and called the impeachment trial a “circus for the Democrat media mob to entertain the masses that they have brainwashed.”
Greene previously expressed support for the QAnon conspiracy theory, which claims that Trump was battling “deep state” Satanists and cannibalistic pedophiles.
On Tuesday, Trump’s lawyers David Schoen and Bruce Castor argued that there is no legal justification to hold an impeachment trial for a president no longer in office.
Schoen played a video montage of Democrats calling for Trump to be impeached since the beginning of his term and called the trial an “unprecedented snap impeachment process.”
“It is a function of the insatiable lust for impeachment in the House for the past four years,” Schoen said.
