LOL just can’t stop laughing at this situation.
Holy crap. Every time you think President Trump and his administration can’t possibly get any worse at using Twitter … they do.
It’s just — it’s truly unbelievable, and on Wednesday afternoon, things escalated when the official Twitter account of Trump’s very own Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao, tweeted something so phenomenal, so absurd, so utterly LOL-worthy that, though it’s been deleted, it will leave a permanent imprint on our hearts for the rest of time.
This wasn’t one of Trump’s passionate insults or Sean Spicer’s accidental password tweets. Instead, Chao’s account tweeted in support of Trump’s impeachment at the coolest Democratic congresswoman in all the land, Maxine Waters. Does it get any better?
Here’s what happened. On Tuesday — a day after a House Intelligence Committee hearing where FBI Director James Comey confirmed his agency was investigating Russia’s attempts to interfere with the 2016 election, along with ties to Trump’s administration — Waters (Queen of sass and keeping all things real) tweeted at Trump with no reservations, "Get ready for impeachment."
On Wednesday, Chao’s official account responded to Waters’ tweet, urging her (in all caps with three exclamation points) to sue Trump’s soul, because ~nothing~ makes sense anymore.

The tweet has since been deleted, and a Transportation Department spokesperson told CNN the text was "posted by an employee with access to the account" who "took action outside of his scope of work and duties and without any approvals."
"We are taking appropriate action. We regret that this transpired and have taken steps to prevent any future occurrence," the spokesperson added.
Still, despite the fact that Chao herself was reportedly not the one advising Waters to SUE Trump’s VERY SOUL, it was still a thrilling interaction.
It’s been such a busy news day this happened and no one really noticed. pic.twitter.com/DxmiMgeWYl
