Just when you thought American politics couldn't get much more surreal, this happened:
Of course, this latest "big league" video came after Trump launched yet another tweet storm last night blasting the media.
....the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat #FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 1, 2017
My use of social media is not Presidential - it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 1, 2017
Meanwhile, CNN seems to have been triggered...
...which means that Trump's plan worked.
"The President in no way form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence. If anything, quite the contrary." - @SHSanders45 6/29/17— CNN Communications (@CNNPR) July 2, 2017
Axios, having dug deep inside the bowels of Reddit, has discovered the alleged source of the Trump gif: that would be "an Internet troll who goes by the name "HanAssholeSolo" who is said to be "having the time of his life. Four days ago, Han posted on Reddit a GIF of Trump body-slamming a man with a CNN logo on his head. Today, Trump tweeted Han's GIF. And forever, in this massive online underworld, Han will be a legend."
The top Reddit comment so far: "Congratulations /u/HanAssholeSolo, your dankery has been tweeted by the President of the United States."
