Social media was lit on Sunday. President Donald Trump’s haters had a new excuse to tear into him.
The president was having some fun retweeting memes and gifs from supporters, but one set the social justice warriors off.

It showed the president hitting a golf ball, and then cut to a scene of Hillary Clinton falling as she boarded a plane. The gif made it appear as if the golf ball from President Trump struck her and caused her to fall.
While some might find the gif amusing, supporters of Clinton took it as the president supporting violence against the former Democrat presidential candidate.
Words fail. The president, folks, but not far from the boy who lobbed rocks at a neighbor’s baby carriage. Thinks hitting women is funny. https://t.co/adudJHXdTB

No. No he doesn’t. It was a golf ball, not a punch.
Donald Trump just retweeted this video attack on Hillary Clinton. And Trump cries and whines when someone calls him a sexist or a racist. https://t.co/BFXU30gBCL

First RT’d video suggesting violence against CNN, now his defeated opponent. What would you think if you saw this in another country? https://t.co/pNzQX2Sfxz
