On Sunday, CNN actually asked Twitter if President Donald Trump’s WWE-themed tweet actually violated Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy.
Predictably, Twitter told the network that the tweet–which showed Trump beating down WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, who has a superimposed CNN logo over his face–did not do so.

CNN media reporter Brian Stelter tried to amplify the ridiculous concerns people had about whether Trump’s tweet actually violated Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy. Trump’s tweet was hilarious because it was rather corny, but that did not stop Stelter from voicing his concerns on-air and asking oh-so-seriously, “Does Trump’s anti-CNN tweet violate Twitter’s terms?”
Stelter noted that “Twitter may suspend an account for a number of reasons, including if the user makes violent threats; attacks people based on race, religion, gender and more; or engages ‘in the targeted abuse or harassment of others.’”
