A vulgar CNN host decided to curse at President Donald Trump after Trump responded to the London terror attack on Twitter.
As leaders do, Trump called for our country to be “vigilant and tough” in the wake of terrorism and not to bow down to the fearmongering tactics of ISIS.
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!

In response to Trump, CNN’s Reza Aslan took to Twitter and called the president a “piece of sh*t.”
“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 wrote in his tweet that has since been deleted.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee rushed to the defense of Trump and criticized Aslan for his original tweet.
“CNN host Reza (Aslan) calls [President Donald Trump] POS-same guy who ate human brain on TV. Must have been his own brain!” Huckabee wrote on Twitter.
CNN host Reza Asian calls @realDonaldTrump POS-same guy who ate human brain on TV. Must have been his own brain!

Aslan later apologized for his tweet, saying that it was the wrong thing to post after a major terrorist attack.

We can only dream that CNN paid attention to this and will fire Aslan, but don’t get your hopes up and expect too much from the “fake news” network.
