President Donald Trump ‘bodyslammed’ the CNN media outlet in a tweet Sunday, using footage from an appearance by Trump on a professional wrestling show with CNN’s logo superimposed over World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon’s head.

The video tweeted by the president comes from his appearance on the WWE’s Wrestlemania 2007 “Battle of the Billionaires”, in which Trump dueled with the WWE owner in a faux battle over a bet, the loser of which would have his head shaved by the winner.

Trump uploaded an altered version of the clip, with the CNN logo covering McMahon’s face.

The Trump White House has feuded with CNN and other left-leaning media outlets the president has dubbed “fake news”.

Last week, the president blasted two MSNBC hosts via Twitter, calling them “crazy”, “pyscho” and suggesting one had a “low IQ”.

“I heard poorly rated Morning Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore),” wrote Trump. “Then how come low IQ Crazy Mika, along with Pyscho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

The president’s tweet came in response to claims by host Mika Brzezinski that Trump was mentally unfit for the presidency and should be confronted by members of his cabinet.

“Let’s say someone came into NBC and took over NBC, and started tweeting wildly about people’s appearances, bullying people, talking about people in the competition, lying every day, undermining his managers… that person would be thrown out. It’s just not normal behavior. In fact, there would be concerns that the person who runs the company is out of his mind.”
