A Tweet aimed at "fake news" media posted by Donald Trump Junior set Twitter on fire, as it included a photo of what looks like a screenshot from CNN. The tweet features a picture of the current US leader with Academy Award-winning actor Sir Sean Connery taken in 2006, as well as pictures of his iconic roles as James Bond and as a Russian submarine captain in The Hunt for Red October. The post busted Trump senior for colluding with foreign agents as well as contained a mock call on Democratic House minority leader in Nancy Pelosi.

Trump supporters echoed his slamming of the "fake news" media.

There were those who couldn't tell the irony…
CNN is really losing it. That's Sean Connery who played a Russian captain big difference. Mueller will probably want to investigate the meeting with Sean Connery. It is really getting stupid.— Lyla Joy Rose (@LylajoyRose) 11 марта 2018 г.

Some hit Trump Jr. with the same ruthless use of Photoshop.
