Twitter eviscerated Donald Trump after he tweeted a video of himself assaulting CNN in a WWE-style wrestling match. Trump, who spent last week attacking the media, including picking a fight with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, is marking the founding of our country with threats of violence.

CNN issues a statement: “It’s a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters. Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lie when she said the President has never done so. Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea, and working on his healthcare bill, he is engaged in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should do his.

Twitter wasn’t having his nonsense this morning. The reaction was fast and blistering:
We have an insane "president," surrounded by sycophants & low travelers & a Congress devoid of any leadership. USA facing a #TwoPaths moment

In defense of America's children please stop calling @realDonaldTrump childish. He's thuggish, crude and tacky.

GOP please have an ounce of integrity. If Pres. Obama had done one tenth of what Pres. Trump has, you would be impeaching him.

White supremacy is such that it allows a clearly diminished man to post this and proceed, but blocked the dignity of Obama at every turn. https://t.co/W6HGiRhC4y

Just keep in mind that the Trump thinks the National Enquirer should've won the Pulitzer. That is all. Have a great weekend!

The President of the Untied States is advocating violence to challenge his "perceived" personal and corporate enemies. LET. THAT. SINK. IN.

The President is emotionally unstable beyond the point America can or should withstand. Is it #Timefor25?
