Democratic lawmakers took to Twitter to once again condemn President Trump's tweeting habits after he spent seven consecutive days using his account to criticize media outlets.
On Sunday, President Trump tweeted a video of himself tackling WWE owner Vince McMahon with a CNN logo superimposed over McMahon's head.
Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., an outspoken critic of Trump, said the president is encouraging violence and the tweet was "beyond unacceptable.
Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., called on all House GOP members to condemn his behavior, saying they were put in place to do just that and if they don't, they are condoning it.
I am calling on EVERY @HouseGOP Member of Congress to condemn this. You were elected to be a check on power. Check it, or you condone it. https://t.co/ZGR58Ufhww— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) July 2, 2017
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., praised journalists as "guardians to our democracy" and called for a rejection to violence against them.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D- Calif., joined his colleagues by calling the president's behavior "beneath the dignity of the office."
Trump blasted the "fake media" just 12 hours prior to his Sunday morning tweet during a Saturday speech honoring veterans at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
While Trump has been sparring with the media for months, the rhetoric has ramped up in recent days, including a personal attack on MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski on Thursday about a supposed "face-lift" she had before seeing him at Mar-a-Lago in December.
That attack quickly spiraled out of control and Trump has been sparring with the "Morning Joe" host and her fiance and co-host Joe Scarborough on Twitter ever since.
However, Trump pivoted back to attacking CNN over the weekend, which was reportedly a concerted strategy on the part of the White House.
