In response to Sally Yates' testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism on Monday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter with a flurry of tweets complaining about the hearing and the prevalence of "fake news."
Amongst his tweets, Trump claimed "Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows—there is 'no evidence' of collusion w/ Russia and Trump," something many sources were quick to point out was an inaccurate interpretation of what Clapper had said during the hearing. Nonetheless, the president was so confident in the tweet that he decided to make it a part of his new Twitter banner.

Before long, many were quick to tear him apart for his decision to add the tweet to his banner, and it was promptly removed shortly after. But on the internet, everything lives forever, so here are just a few of the best responses to Trump's decision to add his tweet to his banner.
