Meet the Racist Reddit User Who Allegedly Created Trump’s CNN-Takedown Video

If you were wondering where that GIF of President Trump‘s fight with CNN came from, well, we might have the answer.

Last week, the video tweeted by the president was posted on pro-Trump subreddit, The_Donald, by a user who goes by the name of “HanAssholeSolo.” The forum is known as an online space for the adoration of Trump, and “HanAssholeSolo” seems to be taking credit for the video while he basks in the newfound recognition:

Wow!! I never expected my meme to be retweeted by the God Emporer himself!!! from The_Donald

A review of “HanAssholeSolo’s” activity shows that he has quite the online history, and that he frequently posted racist and offensive messages against a variety of groups. Here’s another image the user posted with regard to CNN.

Quartz reports that the user also went on obscene rants against Muslims, women, minorities, liberals, and immigrants. The account appears to have scrubbed some of its old content, but screenshots of the uncensored originals remain.
