Nation Immediately Forgets All About Historic Impeachment Trial After Realizing It's Taco Tuesday
Politics · Jan 21, 2020 ·

U.S. - President Trump's historic impeachment trial began today, but nobody noticed as everyone was too excited about Taco Tuesday to care.

"Oh, I guess there's some impeachment thing happen--oh man! I almost forgot: it's taco Tuesday!" one man in New Mexico remarked. "Man, as soon as I get off work, I'm going to get some delicious street tacos for half-off. I can never decide between the carne asada and the pork. Ugh--aw, who am I kidding? I'll get both!"

Similar sentiments were expressed by Americans everywhere as people checked the news and were irritated by another mention of impeachment but then were happy when they remembered it was Taco Tuesday at Mexican restaurants all around the nation.

"This is a historic day -- I think I'm gonna go ahead and splurge on the guac for the first time," said Stacy in Texas. "Truly a momentous day for our nation."

Frantic impeachment managers thought about pushing things back a day so as not to be eclipsed by Taco Tuesday, but then impeachment would just be eclipsed by Wing Wednesday.
