President Trump came under fire Sunday for retweeting an image of himself with the CNN logo in a splatter of blood on the bottom of his shoe. The image, tweeted at the president by a supporter, was emblazoned with the word, “Winning.” Several prominent journalists, including CNN’s Jake Tapper, quickly called Trump out for his apparent endorsement of the anti-media meme—at least the second one that appears to encourage violence against journalists in less than six months. “CNN-labeled blood on the sole of his shoe. Retweeted by the President of the United States on Christmas Eve,” Tapper wrote on Twitter. Walter Schaub, the former director of the Office of Government Ethics, called Trump a “wannabe autocrat” for the retweet. “These colicky tweets reveal he’s hurting this weekend. They make him (and our country) look weak,” he wrote.
