President Donald Trump supporter and CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord is facing accusations of promoting Nazism.
According to Media Matters, Lord published an article attacking their organization that misspelled their president, Angelo Carusone’s, last name. When Carusone pointed that out, Lord responded with a tweet that simply said “Sieg Heil!”, the infamous Nazi salute.
When pushed on the statement, Lord issued a tweetstorm claiming it was a joke meant to offend Carusone and his readers’ liberal sensibilities.
He went on to issue a number of other tweets calling Media Matters “fascists” who are anti-free speech.
