President Donald Trump took his war with CNN to a whole new level Sunday morning, tweeting out a gif of when he appeared on a WWE wrestling show and superimposed a CNN logo of Vince McMahon the person he was wrestling.

It is widely known that Trump does not like CNN, but over the past few days he has turned up the vitriol on his Twitter.

“I am extremely pleased to see that @CNN has finally been exposed as #FakeNews and garbage journalism. It's about time!” Trump tweeted on Saturday.

Trump was most likely referring to the resignations of three CNN staffers in connection to a story CNN had to retract. The story detailed a meeting between a person connected with the Trump transition team and a Russian bank under sanction.

He then went on to take on mainstream media in general with another pair of Tweets.

“The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media - but remember, I won the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat #FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN!” the president tweeted out.

Trump had one more tweet Saturday directed at CNN.

“I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!” Trump tweeted out Saturday night.

Sunday morning was the coup de grace, the president decided it was time for a gif.

Trump appeared at the WWE’s WrestleMania 23 on April 1, 2007. Trump acted out a wrestling scene with McMahon, WWE’s CEO. The scene was a sequel to a Trump appearance on the WWE show “Raw” earlier that year. In the scene, Trump body slams McMahon next to the wrestling ring and then crawls on top of him and “punches” him. Later in the scene Trump shaves McMahon’s head.

In the Sunday Tweet, Trump uses a clipping of the scene and CNN;s logo is superimposed over McMahon’s head. At the end of the gif, Trump walks away and a CNN-style logo appears and says “Fraud News Network.”

Social media has been a tool for Trump throughout his presidential campaign and early presidency. Trump drew criticism recently for his use of Twitter recently after he attacked talk show hosts, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. In particular his personal attacks on Brzezinski for a facelift and calling her “dumb as a rock,” were too far for even some Republicans. Trump defended his use of social media Saturday however in another tweet.

“My use of social media is not Presidential- it's MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!” wrote the president.

Brian Stelter, CNN's media reporter tweeted out CNN's response.

“It is a sad day when the President of the Unites States encourages violence against reporters ... (he is) involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his,” the statement read.
