Ken Starr's 'Age Of Impeachment' Whine Gets The Treatment On Twitter

"Does Ken Starr know he is Ken Starr?" one person fired back at President Donald Trump's impeachment trial defense lawyer.

Ken Starr was accused of hypocrisy after he complained about being in “the age of impeachment” during President Donald Trump’s Senate trial on Monday:

“How did we get here?” asked Starr, a member of Trump’s defense team.

People on Twitter reminded the lawyer of his previous role as the independent counsel who stridently pressed the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

MSNBC’s Ari Melber said Starr’s complaint was “BEYOND RICH coming from him,” while Watergate figure John Dean called Starr the “progenitor of that age.”
