MSNBC Panelist Claims Trump’s Fake Golf Retweet Is ‘Encouraging Violence’ [VIDEO]

A panelist on “MSNBC Live” Sunday claimed that President Trump tweeting a fake GIF of Hillary Clinton getting hit with a golf ball is “encouraging violence.”

Alexi McCammond, Axios’ deputy news director, said, “It’s just ridiculous!”

“It’s encouraging violence against his political rivals, which is certainly not something the president should be doing,” McCammond said, adding, “But yeah, I mean, it is a little surprising that he hasn’t been tweeting more about Clinton, but I think this tweet today was so egregious, it made up for the lack of tweets that he sent in the past few weeks.”


This is in reference to Trump retweeting an edited GIF of him hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball. It edits together a clip of Trump hitting a golf ball and then a video of Clinton falling while boarding a plane.(RELATED: VIDEO: Trump Pegs Hillary Clinton With A Golf Ball In Retweet)
