Just the gif’s fault.
Via Daily Caller:
CNN editor-at-large Chris Cillizza posted a gif containing crosshairs over the image of President Trump on Tuesday.
The original tweet read, “Donald Trump, pointing to heavens to commemorate police officers killed in the line of duty,” and showed green crosshairs over the president’s face.
Cillizza later deleted the tweet and insisted that he did not add the crosshairs himself — rather, he blamed the GIF service used by CNN.
