This morning the Tweeter-in-Chief is at it again, this time sending out a video showing him violently tackling “CNN” and throwing punches.
The video was a follow-up to the mad man’s Twitter rants against CNN yesterday:
Pretty rich coming from someone who only six months ago was forced to pay a $25 million fraud settlement for ripping off veterans and single mothers through his bogus Trump University real estate seminars.
This morning Republican strategist Anna Navarro was a guest on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” and she rightly called Trump’s Twitter statements what they are—an incitement to violence against a free press. She added the president is surrounded by enablers and it is time for the Republican party and those around the president to stand up for democracy itself and say “no!”
Looking directly in the camera, she tells the audience, “America, we cannot stand for it.”
It was only days ago when Trump’s press communications staffer Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the White House Press Corps the president has never promoted or encouraged violence against the media.
Trump also defended his obnoxious, dangerous use of social media as “modern day presidential.” All caps. Because, of course.
CNN responds, saying Trump’s tweet is ‘juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office.’
