CNN has decided to part ways with host Reza Aslan after he called President Donald Trump a “piece of sh*t” for his response to the London terror attacks last week.
Aslan, who had been host of the fairly new CNN series Believer with Reza Aslan, had tweeted about Trump and the president’s tweets after the London Bridge attacks. He wrote, “This piece of shit is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”
The next day, Aslan, an Iranian-American who is a religious scholar and author, apologized for the offensive tweet.
I should not have used a profanity to describe the President when responding to his shocking reaction to the #LondonAttacks. My statement: pic.twitter.com/pW69jjpoZy
