'Immmmm-peeeeeach Meeee! (Impeach me!) Immm-peeeeaach Aaaaaallllllll! (Impeach me!)'

Amid the nearly 100 tweets from Pres. Trump over the weekend raging against the growing impeachment probe engulfing his administration, one retweet caught a lot of Twitter users' attention. (No, not this fishy one.) It was actually one that was even more bizarre, a 40-second animated clip cued to a presidential address in which a Trump fan rotoscoped the former reality TV star in the style of the A-ha's legendary 1985 video for "Take On Me."

The black and white clip -- tinged with a touch of red on Trump's tie and his signature MAGA hats -- includes his legendary hair-mussing on The Tonight Show and a deep, soulful American flag embrace.

As you might expect, Twitter users had plenty to say about it, with many users tweaking the Norwegian group's lyrics to troll the president or otherwise comment on the rapidly escalating crisis that threatens to derail the White House in the run-up to next year's presidential election.
