Trump Sparks Outrage with Doctored Video of Him Body-Slamming CNN | Democracy Now!: On Sunday, Trump again sparked outrage when he tweeted a doctored video of himself body-slamming and punching a figure whose head has been replaced by the CNN logo. The video was an edited clip of Trump appearing at the event WrestleMania in 2007. The video ends with the words "FNN: Fraud News Network." It was posted to Trump’s personal account, then retweeted by the official presidential account. The Reddit user who created the doctored video has made racist, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic and violent comments in the past online, including commenting on a photo of refugees by writing "there’s a MOAB (Mother of All Bomb’s) for that"—in reference the massive bomb the U.S. dropped on Afghanistan in April. The user also posted a photo of Jewish staff members of CNN with Stars of David next to their headshots. After being identified by CNN, the user deleted his past posts and apologized. In response to the video, CNN said, "Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is instead involved in juvenile behavior blowing the dignity of his office.
