Well this is a real shocker! CNN actually did something right! Reza Aslan called President Trump a “piece of sh*t” on twitter (see below) He’s now paying the price!
CNN just released a statement:
“CNN has decided to not move forward with production on the acquired series ‘Believer with Reza Aslan,’” the network said in a statement. “We wish Reza and his production team all the best. “
REZA ASLAN is a CNN host who is a Muslim “religious scholar” who should be fired but probably won’t be. He tweeted out a vile response to President Trump’s tweet from the DRUDGE Report. He also called our President a “man baby” who should be ignored”. What kind of jackwagon disrespects our President like this?
Aslan first tweeted that he considers Trump a “man baby” who should be ignored. This is after our President scooped NBC when he retweeted the DRUDGE tweet that it was “feared” that another terror attack happened in London. NBC tweeted (see below) that they wouldn’t retweet Trumps tweet. Ridiculous move by NBC that turned out to backfire on them.
“The president is a man baby that must be ignored in times of crisis” – CNN’s “Religious Scholar” Reza Aslan
The next tweet from Aslan is the one getting the most press because of its hate and vulgar language:
“This piece of shit is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.” – CNN’s “Religious Scholar” Reza Aslan
Does CNN condone this vile behavior from its hosts? We’ll see if they do anything about this hateful man who is no journalist!
More information on him reveals he’s an Iranian-born CNN employee from his personal website
