Trump Blows Off Second Impeachment, Awards Medal of Arts to Toby Keith and Ricky Skaggs at White House Ceremony During House Votes

While the Pelosi-led House of Representatives voted to impeach him for the second time in his term on Wednesday, President Trump blew off the vote and held a ceremony at the White House to award the National Medal of Arts to country legends Toby Keith and Ricky Skaggs.

NBC’s Peter Alexander, “Trump is currently in the Oval Office awarding the National Medal of Arts to singers Toby Keith and Ricky Skaggs, minutes after becoming the first president ever impeached twice.”

Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs, “NEWS: Amid impeachment effort, Trump is giving medals to @tobykeith and @RickySkaggs — national medal of the arts, several sources tell me”
