Bars all over DC were getting in the impeachment spirit with speciality cocktails and opening their doors early for patrons to enjoy watch parties. Whether enjoying a “subpoena colada” at the bar or watching from the comfort of home, viewers witnessing the sham felt compelled enough to donate to Trump’s re-election campaign, raising over $3.1 million in just 24-hours.
“WOW! $3,144,257 RAISED YESTERDAY! @realDonaldTrump loves these huge numbers” tweeted Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale.

It truly was a show for all. Very few peoples’ minds were changed and tensions remained high. The Wall Street Journal says the atmosphere at the U.S. Capitol was “part sober ceremony, part political carnival.” Impeachment junkies lined up in front of the Longworth House Building beginning the night before in hopes of getting a front-row seat.
However, the true showstopper was drag queen Pissi Myles who “sashayed into the congressional building” wearing a scarlet dress and stilettos to cover the hearings for a live news startup called Happs. In a post to Twitter she reported the scene as “pretty crazy. I’m apparently being referred to as the lady in red, I’ve been called Ruby Giuliani. It’s a little offensive to me that they would assume I took a side in this conversation.”
Finally, if that wasn’t enough excitement, there were also attempts to “calm” things by bringing in therapy dogs. That’s right, to help calm congressional staffers, a fleet of therapy dogs were brought in. What a day, what a circus.
