Trump’s CNN Tweet Linked to Reddit User HanAssholeSolo

President Donald Trump’s tweet showing him bodyslamming CNN appears to have come from Reddit.

The president’s tweet included a looped gif that was posted on the pro-Trump subreddit r/the_donald just four days ago. It incorporates a few changes, including a superimposed meme at the end with the words: “FNN: Fraud News Network.” Nevertheless, users were celebrating the content being posted from the president’s own account on Sunday, specifically congratulating the user who originally posted the gif, “HanAssholeSolo.”

“Congratulations /u/HanAssholeSolo, your dankery has been tweeted by the President of the United States,” one user wrote on the subreddit. This is not the first time the @realDonaldTrump account has posted content generated or spread on online forums. In one high-profile instance during the campaign, then-candidate Trump posted an image of Hillary Clinton next to a Star of David.

“Holy shit!! I wake up and have my morning coffee and who retweets my shitpost but the MAGA EMPORER himself!!!” HanAssholeSolo responded to the news in a comment on the subreddit.

“I am honored!!”
