Twitter rips CNN for firing people who insult Trump — but keeping ‘racists’ like Jeffrey Lord

Published

on

CNN officially announced Friday that it is firing Iranian-American author, producer and host Reza Aslan just weeks following the firing of comedian Kathy Griffin.

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

“’Believer’ means a great deal to me and to the countless viewers it’s reached,” Aslan said in his own statement on Twitter. “Its message of religious tolerance and exploration is extremely important right now. I am deeply grateful to CNN for giving me the opportunity to launch the show and to amplify my voice on their network. I am especially grateful to the legion of people within the Turner organization who worked so hard to make the show a hit series.”

“However, in these politically charged times, the tenor of our nation’s discourse has become complicated, and I recognized that CNN needs to protect its brand as an unbiased outlet. Similarly, I need to honor my voice,” he continued. “I am not a journalist. I am a social commentator and scholar. And so I agree with CNN that it is best that we part ways. I look forward to partnering with another platform in the future and to continue to spread my message. I wish CNN all the best.”

The internet was furious as CNN is being seen as taking things too far and being hypocritical when it comes to conservative commentators like Jeffrey Lord, Kayleigh McEnany and former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA), all of whom have made inappropriate comments in the past and maintained their positions at CNN.

‘Cat is out of the bag’: Trump supporter Byron York reverses and says GOP must allow Bolton impeachment testimony

Published

on

The Washington Examiner's Byron York has long been sympathetic to President Donald Trump. He has repeatedly defended the president's conduct in Ukraine and attacked the Democratic case. Just a week ago, he penned a column criticizing the idea that Trump has been less cooperative in the impeachment trial than President Bill Clinton. And in particular, he has opposed Democratic demands for former National Security Adviser John Bolton to be called to testify against the president, saying, "if anything is covered by executive privilege, it would be the president's private conversations with his national security adviser about issues of foreign policy and national security."

The former national security adviser's forthcoming book "The Room Where It Happened" claims Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and GOP senators are publicly saying they want him to testify during the impeachment trial.

“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton," said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).
