Trump on CNN

It's no secret that the White House and the media don't see eye to eye. From President Donald Trump, to his family members and advisers, the rift between the current administration and the press is showing no signs of slowing down. Just when the American people thought that the bad blood between both sides couldn't get any worse, the last week found a way to top it. Last week, CNN was forced to retract a false story linking the president to a Russian bank, which resulted in Trump amping up his attack on the network.

In addition, a leaked audio recording was released from a recent fundraiser where the former host of "The Apprentice" asked the lawyers in attendance if they would consider helping him sue CNN. The backlash has only escalated in recent days, while Trump has expanded his criticism to MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in a series of vile tweets. As seen on his Twitter account on July 2, Trump decided to bash CNN in a unique way.

Taking to his Twitter feed on Sunday morning, Donald Trump hit back at CNN but did so in a way that we haven't seen before. Instead of his routine tweetstorm, Trump edited a video from his #WWE appearance back in 2005. At the time, Trump was a guest corner man for professional wrestler Bobby Lashley, as he took on his opponent named Umaga.

WWE CEO and owner Vince McMahon stood in Umaga's corner as the two wrestlers had a highlighted match at Wrestlemania 23. The gimmick of the contest was that the losing wrestler would result in their corner man havng their head shaved, which ultimately ended up being McMahon.

During the match, Donald Trump tackled Vince McMahon, while getting on top of him and delivering worked right hand punches to his head. The clip was used during the president's aforementioned tweet, but with the CNN logo photo-shopped and edited over McMahon's face. As part of the caption, Trump used the hashtags "#FraudNewsCNN" and "#FNN."

Moving forward

As Donald Trump continues to bash CNN and other news and media outlets, the president has many other issues to deal with. The growing Russian scandal is still a thorn in his side, with the controversy surrounding his travel ban and health care bill are all contributing to an approval rating that is hovering around just 40 percent.
