After a month of bad news for the CNN network, including plummeting ratings, President Trump has tweeted a video of him ‘beating up’ CNN.
Of course you can’t physically beat up a news network, but the analogy has certainly left those people with sensitive feelings sobbing in their social media tissues.
The original video clip was taken from Trump’s Wrestlemania event back in 2007.
Footage shows him body-slamming, beating, and shaving the head of Vince McMahon at Wrestlemania XXII.
Of course everyone knows that Wrestlemania isn’t real fighting. This was all a show, but the footage is great for President Trump supporters to have fun with.
Of course, CNN doesn’t see it that way.
CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski tweeted: ‘This tweet is juvenile and probably beneath dignity of what president should do – still IMO bit overboard in how everyone’s reacting.
‘Calling the press ‘the enemy of the American people’ was in my opinion 1000x worse than that tweet taken from Reddit.
‘And the environment is bad. And every journalist I know has a deeply ominous feeling about what this rhetoric is encouraging.
‘I know I’m not the only one, but this year is the first time I ever received actual death threats. It’s scary especially because…
‘….many of the articles from fever swamps that intentionally impugn your motives have no accountability for their mistakes.’

Here are more people crying about this video:
Funny, Ana. Does the names James Hodgkinson mean anything to you?
This is an official statement from CNN:
Do we have a serious crisis on our hands here, America?
Or are Trump haters trumping this up to being something bigger than it is?
