Donald Trump Tweets Violent Video of him Virtually Beating down CNN
By: Kayla Pasacreta
It seems Donald Trump keeps taking to Twitter and causing a media storm. Early this morning, he tweeted a gif/video of him virtually beating down the CNN logo. The headline read "#FraudNewsCNN #FNN". Though the video was an obvious troll of CNN, many say the video is inappropriate, calls for violence, and is simply unacceptable coming from the President.
Just a few days ago, his Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated:
“The President in no way form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence. If anything, quite the contrary.””

The video was originally posted four days ago on a Reddit forum. Trump has long been rumored to keep up with Reddit forums about him, and him posting this video definitely suggests these rumors are true. In CNN's response to the video, they state, "sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters." Over the course of the past few days, numerous politicians, news outlets (CNN and MSNBC) have had to condemn the President for his behavior on Twitter.
This latest Tweet from Trump has us wondering - will there be any point that his outrageous Tweets will provide consequences for him?
