Trump Changed His Twitter Banner Photo After The Internet Dragged Him For It

Hours after a Senate hearing Monday on Russian influence on the 2016 election, President Trump had this to say on Twitter:

Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows- there is "no evidence" of collusion w/ Russia and Trump.

They began to suggest other memorable Trump statements and tweets that could be good header material.

Wow, President Trump has updated his Twitter banner image to deliver a stark warning about sharks

trump is maybe 0.33 standard deviations from becoming a 2012-era Favstar guy

Adding text to a header image really offered a whole universe of possibilities.

Some people thought Trump was maybe protesting a little ~too much~ about alleged collusion with Russia.

Nixon: "I am not a crook" Clinton: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" Trump:

The President's Twitter-banner denial of collusion with Russian intelligence services speaks for itself.

And it reminded others of President George W. Bush's infamous banner.

The "mission accomplished" banner of Twitter headers

Meanwhile, alt-right fans of Trump thought it was a great troll.

It's worth noting that Trump's original tweet is misleading. Clapper did say he didn't know of evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia — but the FBI investigation is ongoing, and it's classified.

Not only is that Trump's Twitter header, that is absolutely not what Clapper said!
