House Democrats are pushing forward with an impeachment inquiry, and to make matters worse for Donald Trump, he can’t even catch a break on his favorite platform, Twitter.

This week, Trump was humiliated by both Canadian rock band Nickelback and the frozen pizza company Devour.

On Wednesday, Trump shared a video attacking former Vice President Joe Biden and used part of a 2005 Nickelback music video of its single, “Photograph.” The video focused on the debunked conspiracy theory that Biden interfered with a Ukrainian investigation into his son, Hunter Biden.

Within hours, the video was taken down after Nickelback lodged a complaint with Twitter over the use of its copyrighted material. As of now, the Trump video is still available on YouTube.

That embarrassment came a day after frozen pizza company Devour mocked Trump’s use of a phony online poll.

On Monday, Trump tweeted out an unscientific online poll from the far-right website Breitbart showing 97 percent of readers stand with Trump amidst the impeachment inquiry. Above an image of the poll, Trump wrote, “THANK YOU!”

On Tuesday, Devour tweeted out a “Devour Fan Poll” showing 97 percent of its fans enjoy Devour foods. It also used the all-caps “THANK YOU!” in its tweet.

In reality, many Americans are warming up to the idea of impeaching Trump. A recent USA Today poll shows 45 percent of Americans support impeaching Trump over his request for a “favor” from the Ukrainian president to investigate the Biden family. Only 38 percent oppose impeachment.

As for Devour, there is no nationally recognized poll as to whether or not people love its food.

As of Wednesday morning, Budd had received more than 58 percent of the GOP primary vote. Former Gov. Pat McCrory received just below 25 percent of the vote, while former Rep. Mark Walker received about nine percent of the vote.

Stephen Colbert

It seems we can't go even a week in America without some deranged white nationalist shooter taking the lives of decent people. Of course, this type of violence is propagated on a daily basis by the far-right sh*tweasals at Fox News and, worse yet, in the ranks of the Republican Party.

After returning to the Late Show helm, Stephen Colbert weighed in on the real culprit behind the mass shootings -- the Replacement Theory popularized by Tucker Carlson.
