CNN Host Calls Trump "Piece Of Shit... Embarrassment To Humankind"

Update: late on Sunday afternoon, Aslan apologized, tweeting "I should not have used a profanity to describe the President when responding to his shocking reaction to the #LondonAttacks."

His statement

 

* * *

Shortly after Saturday's latest Islamic terrorist attack in London, when Trump was once again bashed for assuming that it was, well, a terrorist attack - which in retrospect turned out to be accurate - a CNN host slammed Trump for his kneejerk reaction to the attack and his renewed call for a travel ban. As noted last night, Trump took to Twitter Saturday evening, saying, “We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!”

Trump's tweet prompted numerous angry responses including one from the ACLU which said that "glad we both agree the ban is a ban," but by far the most triggered was CNN’s Reza Aslan, a vocal Trump critic and host of Believer, who as the American Mirror pointed out first, lashed out with his own tweet half an hour later:

“This piece of shit is not just an embarrassment to American and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”

This in turn prompted the now traditional twitter back and forth in which conservative media pundit Mark Dice responded: "CNN host more upset about trump denouncing the attack than the attack itself."

It quickly devolved from there into a partisan name-calling back and forth.

This was not the first time a CNN host has used profanity to criticize the president. Fareed Zakaria repeatedly used the term "bulls***" to describe Trump during an appearance on CNN Tonight back in March. The network also cut ties with comedian Kathy Griffin last week after she shared a graphic image of herself holding a severed, bloody head meant to resemble President Trump.

NBC News was also unimpressed with the president’s Twitter feed Saturday night. In addition to his comments about his immigration order, Trump also re-tweeted a link from The Drudge Report that suggested the incident was a terrorist attack long before police made that determination.

In an unprecedented move, NBC News' twitter feed followed up with its own dismissive comment:

Aslan used the statement by NBC News to criticize Trump even further, calling him a “man baby” and urging his followers to ignore the president.

It was not clear if NBC did relay the president's tweet later when "the info" was confirmed.

"Trump is in a position to be the most-informed person in the world," Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold said on CNN Saturday night,  yet he keeps relying on "third-hand info." In this case Trump was right.

We need an EO that removes hate speech conduit CNN from airports. CNN and it’s true POS’s like this Aslan creep incite hate and violence and cannot be allowed to remain in such sensitive space as airports.The Fascist Left should go for removing organizations that support hate tweeters, right?  "Love Aslan's Hate".

How's he doing on THE LIST?1. Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange as a sign he WELCOMES whistle blowers and putting the PEOPLE'S business in the LIGHT2. Begin to revoke the fed's charter by putting Ron Paul in charge of a special investigation of fed malfeasance3. Revoke israel's special exemption from foreign lobbying registration and fully audit AIPAC with an intention to uncover bribery and espionage4. Immediately indict Bill and Hillary Clinton and others from the Clinton Foundation on charges of corruption, espionage, and theft5. Rescind all future payments/allotments to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and israel until they are in compliance with international law and human rights standards6. Cease saber rattling against Iran and Russia and work toward peaceful, complementary accommodations7. Draw down the 600 plus U.S. military bases around the world and bring the Americans HOME 8. Initially shift 30% of the current military budget to domestic infrastructure needs with a mandate of further reductions of 10% per year

We know you mean well, but even Ron Paul would admit under oath that it is just not that easy, and that he was just saying these things to start the legal process for those things to happen. Not much difference except for the seperate personalities. (1) Can backfire on him, and there really should be no leaking of information. That said, there have been no arrests of the leakers. (2)Refer to #3 of my list. (3) Not until mid term elections you dolt. (4) If it were that friggin easy don't you think it would have been done already? (5) See 3# again. (6)Crickets? (7) They are under new leadership now and we have screwed up bigly! By we, I mean you, not me! (8) When Jackson rises from the grave to kill the banks again.

Fake news netowrk going down in flames, crying all the way to the bottom.To be honest, I never heard of this Tezla guy.  He seems very mad, maybe ratings are way down, even tho it's well known they rig their own ratings.  How's that for a kick in the balls!Seriously though, I don't have the energy to watch Fake News and be told what to think.  CNN is irrelevant.  CNN sucks.  Most kids have never even heard of the channel, which makes it clear to me this POS network is dying fast!

8+ years of that crap and I still want to sing to the high heavens!  I feel sorry for the children around the world. Pederasts in control. How sick is that? There is a reason God made Florida in the shape of a gun, and that was to shoot at the rest of the world. Gunshine State protecting everyone.  Support your commercial fisherman in every State and Country. Tall order starts with the border.

Your right 'Ballin D' - I'd read that before myself. Human brain, live on TV. The guy's not only a flesh-eating monster, he's a radical Islamist. My only wish is that we could strap him to a MOAB and drop him back home - Iran. Kind of a share the meat initiative of sorts. Truly a testament to 'the religion of peace'.

I hope that whoever downvoted your comment is a part of the Clinton crime.org, or a mistake because of the annoying adds that often cause this. Flinging poo, bathing in the Ganges, eating human brains, and telling people what to think about their President. This really is a desperate group of people if this is who they choose to defend/represent them. Seth Rich is one of many smoking guns. Where is Huma Abedin? There was a rumor this morning that her brothers house was raided in Dearborn(?), Michigan.
