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.

“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” wrote the former Justice Department attorneys in their Sunday letter. “It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.”

Air Force One in flight.

Another oops moment happened for President Donald Trump's campaign manager stole George W. Bush's photo from the Daytona 500 in 2004.

‘America — y’all gotta wake up’: MSNBC panel cracks up laughing at Trump bizarre claims about the border wall

Published

on

Last month, President Donald Trump's border wall collapsed due to weather problems. A new decision was made that in certain areas, Trump's wall must be a kind of "gate" that will remain open during months known for heavy flooding.

After weeks of ignoring the news, Trump finally found something to say about the catastrophe during a press conference where he rambled about different ways that people have tried to get drugs over the wall using a sling-shot.
