President Donald Trump released a tweet on Sunday that managed to anger the liberal media in a hilarious way.
In the video, Trump can be seen body slamming World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman Vince McMahon, whose face has been replaced by the CNN Logo.
“#FraudNewsCNN #FNN,” tweeted Trump.

The liberal media tried to play the victim card and acted like the Trump administration is bullying them with tweets like these.
100 Percent Fed Up reports:
In a statement on Twitter, CNN recalled comments from White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders last week that the president doesn’t condone violence against the media.
“‘The President in no way form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence. If anything, quite the contrary.’ – @SHSanders45 6/29/17,” the CNN tweet said.
Bipartisan condemnation against the take-down video continued to build Sunday morning.
GOP Rep. Eric Swalwell urged all Republicans to rebuke the Tweet or be complicit in its message.
“I am calling on EVERY @HouseGOP Member of Congress to condemn this. You were elected to be a check on power. Check it, or you condone it,” the California representative tweeted on Sunday.
Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi also slammed Trump for the tweet.
“Violence & violent imagery to bully the press must be rejected. This #July4th, celebrate freedom of the press, guardians to our democracy,” she wrote on Twitter.
Other liberal critics accused Trump of “inciting violence” against the liberal media.

One Trump administration official disagreed with the media’s outcry, saying that his tweet didn’t incite violence.
“Certainly not, though I think that no one would perceive that as a threat. I hope they don’t. I do think that [Trump is] beaten up in a way on cable platforms that he has a right to respond to,” Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert said on ABC’s “This Week.”
What do you think about this tweet? Was it simple humor, or do you think Trump was inciting violence?
