An elderly lady, who identifies herself as “Grandma Winnie” has been captured on video saying she is 100 years old and that "all I want for my birthday is for someone to impeach this sucker". At the end of the video, the woman tosses a "Make America Great Again" cap she was holding to the side.
The video almost immediately went viral and has already garnered 2.7 million views on Twitter.

Netizens have commented on the video, criticising Trump as House Democrats pursue an impeachment inquiry against the president.
You can't really fool women; especially 100 year young women who have seen it all. I know they overlook stuff sometimes; but deep down you teally can't fool them. On this day, she is America's grandma. Give her a standing ovation. pic.twitter.com/pCBMEh6ZIB— Victor L. Nickson1 (@l_nickson1) October 22, 2019

On 24 September, US House Democrats started an impeachment probe over a whistleblower complaint that claimed Trump might have abused his power by allegedly pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a 25 July phone call into investigating Joe and Hunter Biden for corruption.
Trump has denied the accusations of misconduct, published the transcript of the call, and characterised the impeachment inquiry as another political witch hunt aimed at reversing the results of the 2016 US presidential election.
