An Internet troll who goes by the name "HanAssholeSolo" is having the time of his life. Four days ago, Han posted on Reddit a GIF of Trump body-slamming a man with a CNN logo on his head. Today, Trump tweeted Han's GIF. And forever, in this massive online underworld, Han will be a legend.

The top comment: "Congratulations /u/HanAssholeSolo, your dankery has been tweeted by the President of the United States."
