Wednesday’s partisan House impeachment vote led to confusion among the less politically–informed, as many believed an “impeached” president would have to leave the White House.

However, people under the impression that “impeached” meant Trump was no longer president were in for a rude awakening, as laid out by conservative commentator Candace Owens.
My condolences to all the lefties and liberals who woke up this morning with the realization that Donald J. Trump is still their President.
It’s WRONG that the Democrats keep toying with your emotions just because you have a low-IQ and have no clue how our government works!

The term “Vice President” also began trending on social media, as many believed Veep Mike Pence would be taking over Trump’s role.
"Vice President" is trending because leftists think Trump is no longer President 😂

Infowars’ Kaitlin Bennett proposed letting people who were in the wrong continue believing the delusion:
Maybe instead of correcting liberals who think Trump's impeachment means he was removed from office, we should just let them believe he's no longer President. That would be funnier.

Unfortunately for Trump-hating Dems, a Senate trial must still be held and a vote taken where senators would decide whether to convict the president, a serious long-shot given the Republican majority afraid to upset their constituents by voting to impeach.
Many people may be unfamiliar with the impeachment process, or confused by how voting to impeach in the House and voting to convict in the Senate works. Here’s a helpful chart! #Impeached pic.twitter.com/s6sMG8eg7v

In the meantime, it’s still hilarious to see people reacting on social media thinking Trump has been ousted… and without further ado:
