Trump Tweeted a Video of Him Beating up a Guy With a CNN Logo Over His Face

President Donald Trump isn’t exactly taking the idea of a holiday weekend to heart. Instead of staying away from social media for Fourth of July celebrations like most of us may do, Trump tweeted a video that apparently implies violence against journalists, The Huffington Postreports. The content of his tweets just seems to get crazier every time, huh?

The video shows an old clip of Trump attacking WWE owner Vince McMahon a decade ago, but the CNN logo is placed over McMahon’s face. Accompanying the video was Trump’s hashtag “FraudNewsCNN.”

The official White House account retweeted the video, but CNN was quick to respond as well, quoting White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders when she defended Trump’s attitude towards journalists earlier this week. Needless to say, Huckabee Sanders’ comment does not exactly make Trump’s tweet any better.

According to HuffPost, this is not the first statement against the press that Trump made this weekend. At an event honoring military veterans on Saturday night, the president said, “The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House. But I’m president, and they’re not.”

And that relates to military veterans how…?

Also earlier this weekend, Trump defended his frequent use of Twitter by calling his habit “modern day presidential,” Timereports.

Given former President Barack Obama's own use of Twitter while in office, it's easy to agree that presidents tweeting is a new sign of the times. But it's safe to say that President Trump using his Twitter account to call out the press (and with the video equivalent of a meme) is not exactly the most noble, presidential act.
