CNN's Reza Aslan Issues Most Incredibly Insincere Apology About Trump

Host of 'Believer with Reza Aslan' Reza Aslan speaks onstage during the CNN Original Series portion of the TCA Turner Winter Press Tour 2017 Presentation at The Langham Resort on January 14, 2017 in Pasadena, California.

WARNING: This article contains strong language.

On Sunday, after President Trump tweeted about his travel ban in the wake of the London terror attacks, CNN's Reza Aslan referred to the president as a "piece of sh*t" on Twitter.

The exact quote from the now-deleted tweet reads: "This piece of sh*t is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He's an embarrassment to humankind."

Aslan has now issued an "apology," saying it's just not like him to lose his cool like that:

"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. 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."

Two things. First, it most certainly is like Aslan to use foul language to describe people with whom he disagrees. Twitchy has catalogued some of Aslan's finest moments. Hats off to them for doing the digging:

Second, Aslan's apology wasn't an apology in the slightest. I'm sorry I used a socially offensive word to describe this worthless, disgusting, piece of garbage president. That means absolutely nothing. In fact, it has the effect of making Aslan look like a man who is not only a jerk, but an incredibly insincere human being to boot.
