you want to be stupid, you scream about Trump encouraging violence by tweeting out a video of him fake-wrestling a logo.

"The President in no way form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence. If anything, quite the contrary." – @SHSanders45 6/29/17

If you’re keeping score at home, political rhetoric only inspires violence if it’s a Republican saying it:
Media then: violent lefty rhetoric had nothing to do with the Scalise shooting
Media now: Trump's wrestling GIF will get journos killed.

Yes, Trump's CNN tweet is dumb – but those saying it's an "incitement to violence" should meet at least one person who watches wrestling.

I'd argue that her saying this could just as easily….taking a stupid WWE .gif & hyperventilating over it does no one any good. https://t.co/J6H2vlptA9
