CNN Crank Posts Trump Assassination GIF – Blames Default Gif Generator

CNN’s Chris Cillizza posted, and later deleted, a GIF of President Donald Trump that appeared to show Trump in the cross hairs of a sniper rifle scope as he spoke Tuesday morning at the annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service held on the grounds of the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Cillizza captioned the image with the line “killed in the line of duty”

“Donald Trump, pointing to heavens to commemorate police officers killed in the line of duty”

The image was captured by Sundance at the Conservative Treehouse.

Cillizza deleted the Trump assassination image and posted a ‘who me?’ explanation blaming a default GIF generator image, “I’ve deleted a GIF about President Trump. We use @GifGrabber to make our GIFs and it defaults to the image below as a first frame. To clear up any unintended confusion, I’ve removed the tweet.”

A Twitter user recorded the entire gif:
