Triggered by CNN host Reza Aslan’s incendiary rhetoric regarding President Trump, one example including him calling Trump a “piece of s***,” CNN has decided to drop his non-fiction show, Believer with Reza Aslan.
CNN released a statement, saying, “CNN has decided to not move forward with production on the acquired series ‘Believer.’ We wish Reza and his production team all the best.”
Aslan had responded to this tweet from Trump about his “travel ban.”
Aslan first tweeted this, which he later deleted:
CNN should have known better, as John Nolte of The Daily Wire has pointed out, noting this deleted tweet from 2012:
As Brent Bozell and Tim Graham have noted:
He called Trump a “POS” — how polite to abbreviate it — on May 17 in response to a Huffington Post article, saying, “This is precisely the bull—- that led a record 81% of WHITE evangelicals to vote for a greedy lecherous racist pathological lying POS.” On May 9, he called Trump a “lying conniving scumbag narcissistic sociopath piece of s— fake president.”
And more: “He reviewed President Trump’s first trip abroad, saying, ‘But on the plus side he didn’t s— himself in public.'”
And more: “While responding to a tweet by author and Barack Obama critic Dinesh D’Souza, he fired off: ‘Hey Dinesh. I’ll say this as politely as I can: Go f— yourself, you adulterous piece of sh– felon.'”
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
