The Washington Post is clearly upset that CNN has just fired an on-air host who tweeted that President Trump was a “piece of shit.”
Others are wondering why it took CNN so long to get rid Reza Aslan after his tweets that were far outside the bounds of good taste.
Aslan took down his original tweet where he referred to the President as “This piece of s––– is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”
Aslan realized that he was in some trouble shortly after his outburst and tried to issue an apology, but after the storm over another CNN personality, Kathy Griffin, the network felt that it needed to do something to show some semblance of fairness.
Here’s Aslan’s self-serving attempt at an apology.

It is refreshing to see that CNN is beginning to realize that while the American public may disagree with some of Trump’s policies and methods, as President of the United States his office deserves respect.
