(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 animation appears to have been posted to a pro-Trump internet forum earlier in the week.

President Trump, who has reveled in his confrontational style with the news media, sparked fierce debate Sunday over whether he is inciting violence against journalists by posting a doctored video clip showing him bashing the head of a figure representing CNN.
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.

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.

Twitter Rants

Donald Trump, the most insecure man in America
Cassady Rosenblum (The Chicago Tribune, 02/07/2017)

Here is a new strategy for the resistance: Bleed on ’em. On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack MSNBC commentator Mika Brzezinski with insults so medieval they might have been funny had they not come from the president’s fingertips.
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.
