CNN fired host Reza Aslan on Friday afternoon days after he called President Donald Trump a “piece of sh*t” on Twitter.
“CNN has decided to not move forward with production on the acquired series ‘Believer with Reza Aslan,’” the network said in a statement, according to Daily Mail. “We wish Reza and his production team all the best.”
Aslan apologized last Sunday after he made the offensive comment to slam Trump over his reaction to the London Bridge terrorist attack.
“When in the first few minutes of the terror attack in London, the President of the United States tweeted about his travel ban, I lost my cool and responded to him in a derogatory fashion,” Aslan added in a lengthier statement. “That’s not like me. I should have used better language to express my shock and frustration at the president’s lack of decorum and sympathy for the victims of London. I apologize for my choice of words.”
For a purportedly scholar of religion, Aslan’s profanity-laced rant against President Trump shows how deeply unhinged liberals have become in their collective dogma.
