On Tuesday afternoon, the Twitter account Trump War Room posted a 21-second video showing President Trump as Thanos snapping Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Jerry Nadler, Rep. Adam Schiff, and other Democrats out of existence.

As Twitchy reported, CNN’s Don Lemon had a meltdown over it the following night on air. “This is crazy. This is literally crazy. Are you people insane? Are you insane?” he asked. “Go ahead, troll the Democrats on Twitter. Do this stupid, silly you know what. Play this stupid, juvenile meme game. History won’t record this meme stupid crap, but history will record this [impeachment].”

That wasn’t the end of it either — memes like this really, really upset the folks at CNN. Next, CNN tracked down the creator of Thanos to get his reaction and to urge Trump War Room to take down the video.

Tom Elliott of Grabien Media noted that CNN still wasn’t quite done milking this non-story. Here’s CNN media guy Oliver Darcy weighing in.

What backlash, outside of CNN headquarters?

To quote Lemon, “This is crazy. This is literally crazy. Are you people insane?”

Trump War Room really should have added the CNN logo being snapped out of existence too — we’d never hear the end of the “attack on the press” and “incitement of violence” hot takes.
