As Twitchy reported, NBC News’ big scoop Friday on former sheriff David Clarke, Jr. — the discovery of a newly released search warrant — fell flat after it was revealed that the Justice Department had already cleared Clarke of the civil rights investigation to which the warrant was connected. It wasn’t fake news, but it was old news pretending to be new.
On Saturday, Clarke took aim at the media, posting a photo of himself and Trump wrestling “CNN.”
BREAKING NEWS! When LYING LIB MEDIA makes up FAKE NEWS to smear me, the ANTIDOTE is go right at them. Punch them in the nose & MAKE THEM TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD. Nothing gets a bully like LYING LIB MEDIA’S attention better than to give them a taste of their own blood #neverbackdown pic.twitter.com/T2NY2psHCR

We know from experience that journalists from CNN can be triggered easily by such images and animated GIFs, but for some reason, “40-Year-Old Virgin” director Judd Apatow felt he had to report the tweet as a threat.

Are we seriously doing this again? Whom, exactly, did Clarke threaten to punch? CNN’s logo or the LYING LIB MEDIA?
Dude. It's literally faked fake wrestling. https://t.co/u49Pw2dYv1

Judd that’s not really Clarke in the picture, it’s just like photo shopped.

A "funny man" and a "talker" shows either his glass sensibilities or his unscrupulousness.

We should also shut down & censor all movies, books, video games, cartoons, TV shows. Americans need to be parented by removing everything but rainbows & unicorns. We're just too dumbed down.

Lefty elitist tattletales are slightly more annoying than Sheriff Clark's propaganda. https://t.co/lfTJ696HJ2
