While there will be many people who will say that Donald Trump’s WWE tweet where it depicts himself beating up on CNN is silly, it isn’t. At All.
What Trump insinuated is that it is fine to belittle the freedom of the press and beat up on them figuratively and literally. This isn’t only un-American, it’s dangerous.
Speaking out against Trump’s actions on ABC News was Ana Navarro. She made the very important case that we must take these tweets seriously and he needs to be held accountable.
“It is an incitement to violence. He is going to get someone killed in the media.”

She went on to say that we, as Americans, cannot and must not put up with this. It’s not presidential.
There are some very, very unhinged individuals in this country, many of whom are Trump supporters who will see something like this tweet as a permission slip to beat up on the press, or worse, gravely injure them.
Trump needs to be held accountable for this horrific and dangerous behavior. Republicans in Congress need to stop putting party before country and get this crazy man out of the Oval Office. He’s a danger to not only the country but the world.
