President Donald Trump certainly is no stranger to the wrestling ring. In 2007, he assaulted WWE Chairman Vince McMahon at ringside during WrestleMania 23. But in 2017, Donnie Boy has bigger fish to fry. Some pretty damn fake fish too. Very fake fish.
On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted a video of himself taking down a person with a CNN logo on his face. Donnie clotheslines CNN, and then punches the crap out of it when it’s down on the ground.
Take that, fake news!
Update (7/2/17, 2:11 P.M. EST): CNN struck back! A network spokesperson responded by saying, “It is a sad day when the president of the United States encourages violence against reporters. Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the president had never done so.” The spokesperson dug deeper into the POTUS who they claim “is involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his.”
Trump has been sparing with the media ever since he stepped down from the escalator in June 2015 to announce his bid for the US presidency. But an adviser thinks the parody video is particularly harmless. That adviser said that “no one would perceive that (the Tweet) as a threat. I hope they don’t.”
Meanwhile, White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert sticks up for the president in his fight against certain media outlets. Bossert said that Trump has been “beaten up in a way on cable platforms that he has a right to respond to.”
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said last week Trump “in no way, form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence.”
The Tweet relabels CNN as the “Fraud News Network” of “FNN.”
And all the while I thought Donnie Boy was conversing all his energy to fight Mike and Morning Joe…
Who’s the person behind the CNN logo? Well, it’s Vincent Kennedy McMahon dammit! This clip is originally from 2007’s Battle of the Billionaires match at WrestleMania 23. And don’t worry, liberal media, Steve Austin took care of business and went Stone Cold crazy on Trump after the match…
