In apparent reaction to former CIA director James Clapper's testimony during Monday's Russia hearing, President Donald Trump changed his Twitter profile header to reflect one of Clapper's comments.

The tweet, superimposed over GOP figureheads flashing the thumbs-up sign, reads, "Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows — there is 'no evidence' of collusion w/Russia and Trump."

The new profile header elicited strong reactions from social media varying in degrees from laughter to scorn.

After the president changed his profile header photo, he tweeted, "The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?"

Sally Yates, former Deputy Attorney General, testified on Monday that former national security adviser Michael Flynn had been compromised by his ties to Russia, and as a result, was vulnerable to blackmail.

Flynn resigned from his position in February after admitting to briefing Vice President Mike Pence with "incomplete information" about his phone calls with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump's inauguration.

Called to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism about the Trump administration's purported Russian interference, Yates said, "We believed that Gen. Flynn was compromised with respect to the Russians."

“To state the obvious, you don’t want your national security adviser compromised with the Russians,” she said.
