Trump shares GIF of himself striking Hillary Clinton in back with golf ball – New York News

President Donald Trump retweeted a meme on Sunday morning that showed him hitting Hillary Clinton in the back with a golf ball.


The animated GIF spliced together a clip of Trump swinging a golf club with footage of Clinton falling, apparently edited to appear as if a golf ball had struck her down.

The image was originally posted as a reply to the president by a Twitter user whose bio consists of pro-Trump, anti-Clinton hashtags.

“Donald Trump’s amazing golf swing #CrookedHillary,” the user wrote in the caption.

The retweet immediately drew hundreds of Trump’s critics and supporters into a familiar vortex of debate, with many criticizing the GIF for seeming to encourage violence and others defending the president.

Trump’s love of Twitter and his propensity to post controversial tweets — often very late at night or first thing in the morning — is well known. The golf-swing repost, however, was part of an unusual retweet spree in which Trump shared at least half a dozen tweets from other accounts that showed the president in a favorable light. Three were from an account called “Trumpism 5.0,” which included a train “wearing” a “Make America Great Again” hat.
