    While some social media users roasted Trump over the whole 9/11 angle being brought into the equation, others opted to slam the president's opponents over the impeachment proceedings instead.

    The media drama surrounding the impeachment proceedings against US President Donald Trump has once again been thrust into the spotlight after the US head of state cited a statement by Fox News host Mark Levin who argued that Trump is "denied due process".

    "The president gets less due process than the terrorists on 9/11 get. They get habeas corpus rights and all these other… the president gets no rights, no consideration. The Republicans, no rights. You just told me you couldn’t call a single witness", Levin said as quoted by the Independent.

    Many social media users, however, did not appear amused by the 9/11 terrorist attacks being brought into the equation.

    And there seemed to be no shortage of those who seemed eager to see Trump evicted from the Oval Office.

    There were also those, however, who took the opportunity to criticise Trump's opponents instead.

    On 18 December, the US House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump due to the latter allegedly abusing his power by pressuring the Ukrainian government to open an investigation into the activities of the 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden; the impeachment trial is set to begin on 21 January.

    Trump has repeatedly denied the allegations brought against him, describing the impeachment proceedings as a “witch hunt” on more than one occasion.
