Celebrities are reacting to Donald Trump tweeting on Sunday morning a 28-second video of him wrestling to the ground a person with the CNN logo over his head, along with the caption, “#FraudNewsCNN #FNN.” The metaphor appears to be that the president is taking down CNN, with whom he’s long sparred and called “fake news.” The actual clip, which has been modified with the CNN logo, dates back to an appearance Trump made at Wrestlemania in 2007, during which he tackled and beat up WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. Now Hollywood stars are sharing their reactions to the footage.
Seth Rogen tweeted, “Remember the time the president photoshopped the logo of a news company on a person and then tweeted a vid of him fake wrestling that logo?” Albert Brooks jokingly cautioned, “Don’t be horrified by CNN wrestling tweet, it’s just practice. He’s scheduled to wrestle Putin for control of the world.” And Cher pointed out, “The irony in Trump calling CNN fake while using a clip of him pretending to beat someone up in a NOT AT ALL REAL FIGHT in a WWE match.”
