Twitter calls for Trump impeachment with #25thAmendmentNow

A Trump-centered wrestling meme has KO'ed a lot of people, but not in the way the POTUS had hoped. Now, the meme has many demanding his impeachment.

On Sunday, Trump shared a video clip of a 2007 wrestling match between him and WWE CEO, Vince McMahon — only with the CNN logo superimposed over McMahon's head. The altered video imagines the president putting the smackdown on one of his least favorite news outlets.

Trump has never been cryptic about his hatred of CNN. But his critics saw this meme is a direct call for violence against the media. The outrage has spawned several Twitter hashtags calling for the president's impeachment: #25thAmendmentNow, #25thAmendment and #25for45.
