Democrats tried to impeach every elected Republican president since Dwight D. Eisenhower

Snopes website checks out if Democrats have sought to impeach every Republican president since Dwight D. Eisenhower. Looking to debunk this mostly true claim, Snopes confirms that Democrats have indeed tried to impeach every elected Republican president since Eisenhower. 

What's Snopes says is true: Articles of impeachment were introduced against five of the six Republican presidents who have served since President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

What the website says is "false:" Articles of impeachment were not introduced against President Gerald Ford.

Gerald Ford was not elected, and only served 2 years.  

This all started with a popular meme that shows a black and white photo of General Eisenhower above a caption that reads “INTERESTING FACT!!! Did you know Democrats have tried to impeach every Republican President since Eisenhower???”
