03 July 2017 - Trump Tweets Video of Him "Beating up" CNN
(BBC News, 02/07/2017)
The US President has tweeted a short video clip of him wrestling a person with the CNN logo for a head.
The clip is an altered version of Donald Trump's appearance at a WWE wrestling event in 2007, in which he "attacked" franchise owner Vince McMahon in a scripted appearance.
The animation appears to have been posted to a pro-Trump internet forum earlier in the week.

Trump’s latest provocation in his war with the media brought denunciations from Democrats, and some Republicans, who warned that the president’s conduct could endanger reporters as he seeks to undermine public trust in reporting about his administration.
"Horrible Human Beings"

President Donald Trump suggested that he is considering suing CNN, who employs what he called "horrible human beings," according to leaked audio from a Republican National Committee event held in his Washington, D.C., hotel Wednesday night.
Trump hosted the gathering at the Trump International Hotel to fundraise for his re-election campaign. Attendees were charged $35,000 to $100,000 per seat.
"Boy, did CNN get killed over the last few days," Trump said to the applause of the audience, according to the Intercept, who obtained the audio despite media being barred from the event.

First Trump called Brzezinski “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” — which in psychology is what we refer to as “projection.” There is nothing dumber, or more insane, than the commander in chief taking time out of his day to personally attack a TV host when he should be governing the country.
It seems like Trump realizes this and is now calling others what he most fears about himself. But heck — forget the tax returns! Show us that bell curve, baby! If we are going to talk about IQs, my money’s on Mika.
