By now, everybody’s seen the little video of Donald Trump laying a pro-wrestling style smack down on a guy with a CNN logo superimposed over his face. It’s symbolic of how the President has to fight the fake news that CNN feeds the American people.
Here’s what the good folks at CNN have now done:
CNN has found HanAssholeSolo, who took credit for the gif Trump tweeted of him bodyslamming CNN, and he's apologized https://t.co/1t4erO0jpB

So, they found the guy and he apologized. How wonderful for CNN.
But wait, there’s more!
CNN said they won’t publish the artists name because he issued an apology, showed his remorse, took down all his offending posts, and said he was not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again.
In addition, he said his statement would serve as an example for others not to do the same.
It looks like the thugs at CNN didn’t think this one through:
I can't emphasize how bad this is on CNN's part. This is basically "don't post stuff we don't like or we'll dox you." Extremely unethical. pic.twitter.com/5bJZIZasH0

Nice variation on a Clinton campaign slogan!
Congrats! You are officially the mafia! That's a mob tactic. Coerced apology. No one takes you seriously anymore.

Great investigative work CNN. But was it really necessary?
Young Conservatives reports:
CNN was very upset about the tweet that President Donald Trump made with him joke slamming their logo.
How would one know they were seriously triggered?
They slammed Trumps tweet as ‘inciting violence’ against journalists.
But they did even more than that.
