CNN dumps host Reza Aslan after profane tweets about Trump

Published

on

Reza Aslan, the host of CNN’s Believer, has been dropped by the network less than a week after he went off on a profane Twitter tirade against President Donald Trump.

Variety reports that CNN has cut ties with Aslan, the Iranian-born author whose show Believer debuted earlier this year.

“CNN has decided to not move forward with production on the acquired series Believer with Reza Aslan,” the network explained in a prepared statement. “We wish Reza and his production team all the best.”

Aslan came under fire from conservatives last week after he slammed President Trump as a “piece of sh*t” for using last weekend’s terrorist attacks in London to slam London Mayor Sadiq Khan and to again advocate for his proposed travel ban from multiple Muslim-majority countries.

“This piece of sh*t is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency,” Aslan wrote. “He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”

CNN also recently cut ties with comedian Kathy Griffin after she posed for a photo holding what was supposed to be Trump’s severed head.

The Washington Post national political reporter said President Donald Trump's son-in-law has sparked confusion in those efforts by placing himself in the chain of command, and both Kushner and trade adviser Peter Navarro were contradicting advice from White House medical experts.

"When you ask about the inner circle, it is clear to me," Costa told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," "based on my reporting, that Peter Navarro, more than anyone now, whether it's on urging the president to take a position that's different than Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, or when it comes to the Defense Production Act, nudging corporations, sometimes pushing corporations to do what the White House wants, that Navarro is at the center."

Published

CNN's John Berman on Monday got into a heated exchange with Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro after he questioned whether Berman actually wanted to see people recover from being infected with COVID-19.

Toward the end of a lengthy interview about the potential merits of treating COVID-19 with anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, Berman told Navarro that "we all want the same thing, which is people to get better."
