CNN host, Reza Aslan fired following Anti-Trump Tweets

CNN has dropped Reza Aslan, the host of the non-fiction series it launched earlier this year. The Iranian-American author and religious scholar came under fire earlier this month after he insulted US President Donald Trump, in the wake of remarks the President made about the terrorist attacks on London. Aslan tweeted:
After Trump tweeted about his travel ban following the London terror attack, Aslan called Trump “a piece of s–t”. He tweeted:
“This piece of shit is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”
After he received backlash from the tweet, he later apologized, saying,
“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.”
Despite his apology, CNN still dropped his show:
"CNN has decided to not move forward with production on the acquired series ‘Believer with Reza Aslan,'” the network said in a statement.
“We wish Reza and his production team all the best. ”

“Believer” would have entered a second season if it had been picked up.

Personally, he should have received a warning rather than being fired instantly. I like this guy though but I have to admit he went over the edge this time around. CNN Presenter: Jim Acosta should also watch it as well, even though he does his with style.

This is what happens when CNN realized that their scheming tactics of seeing Trump impeached has been utterly defeated!
