Pres. Donald Trump gave Atlanta-based CNN a lovely early Christmas present today: a retweet of a meme of Trump with a squashed bug on the sole of his shoe with the CNN logo on it.
The image originated on a Twitter account called "oregon4TRUMP."
Trump was complaining that the media wasn't giving him enough credit for the positive accomplishments this year.
