It was a historic moment Wednesday when United States President Donald Trump was impeached by the House for the second time, a week after a mob supporting him caused havoc at Capitol Hill. The move has prompted many reactions on social media.

With the Capitol secured by armed National Guard, the House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump. Ten Republicans also joined the Democrats in backing impeachment.

Trump was formally charged with inciting an “insurrection” as he told supporters at a rally near the National Mall to march to the Capitol in an effort to get Republicans to overturn his defeat at the presidential election.

At least five people, including a Capitol Police officer, died in the violence and its immediate aftermath.

Many flocked to Twitter, to share their thoughts about impeaching Trump and several shared memes and jokes about it.

From Chrissy Teigen to Jimmy Kimmel, several celebrities also took to social media, expressing their views on the impeachment:

Trump is now set to face a Senate trial to determine whether to remove him, which cannot begin until January 19, his final full day in office. (Click for LIVE UPDATES)

Only two presidents other than Trump have been impeached — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 — and both were ultimately acquitted and completed their terms in office.
