Social media and the mainstream media are lit up Thursday night with the news that a U.S. airstrike has killed Gen. Qassim Soleimani, a terrorist and the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force. Well, over on CNN they’re still talking impeachment, we hear:
I kid you not, CNN is talking about impeachment right now.
The U.S. just killed Soleimani, a terrorist leader more significant than Bin Laden. pic.twitter.com/bxpo3sY3gl

At least Cooper had moved on from talking about big c**ks.
A lot of people have been doing wellness checks on Ben Rhodes to see if he’s OK, and Federalist contributor Anna James Zeigler was good enough to check on conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin’s Twitter feed.

Looks like they did something.

Some people just did something to some people.

We’ve checked Rubin’s feed to see if she’s yet written a post about what was done and why Trump shouldn’t have done it, but there’s nothing there yet. Guaranteed it’s coming tomorrow.
This tweet is still up?

Not. A. Thing. Except kill Iranian generals, you know. I think you forgot about that one.

Since we mentioned CNN covering impeachment above, we thought it was only fair to hear from an avid Fox News viewer:
Potentially world-changing news coming from Iraq and CNN has Mazie Hirono on to discuss her legal theories on impeachment.

Now Fox's 10pm show is discussing impeachment and the Dem primary while the other cable news networks cover the breaking news. Thoughts? https://t.co/wDyFUtZ7mf

Yeah, here’s a thought:
To finally talk about the death of Qassem Soleimani, CNN brings on….Max Boot. pic.twitter.com/SF8J82oV4O
