President Trump taunted CNN as the network's Atlanta headquarters was attacked by rioters, retweeting a supporter who noted what she called the "irony" of the violence.
Trump retweeted conservative supporter "Melissa A.," who snarked that the network was "being attacked by the very riots they promoted as noble & just."
The retweeted post included a video clip of hundreds of protesters, some of whom scrawled graffiti -- including the words "F-- Trump" -- on a giant CNN logo and busted the building's glass entrance.
