Donald Trump has been showing signs of frustration and desperation as his impeachment trial finally began.
Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivered a point-by-point rebuttal to Republican defenses of Trump’s actions and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s efforts to rush through an acquittal.
Trump tweeted in obvious frustration from Davos, Switzerland saying:
“READ THE TRANSCRIPTS!”
READ THE TRANSCRIPTS!

People on Twitter noticed his frustration and called him out on it. Here are some of the best responses:

And while reading the transcripts, see if you can find the word corruption anywhere in the two calls the President claimed was all about corruption. https://t.co/lINBvatHrw

the one where you mention Burisma and the Bidens but not corruption? Yes, I read that one. The one where you linked investigation to aid ("I would like you to do us a favor though")? Yup, read it.
