CNN host Reza Aslan criticized President Donald Trump in a profanity-laced tweet on Saturday.

“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 tweeted out. The tweet has since been deleted.

Aslan is the host of the CNN show “Believer”, which follows him around while he travels the world and immerses himself in various religions. Aslan came under fire earlier this year for eating a piece of a human brain on the premiere episode of his show.

Aslan’s Twitter outburst was in response to a tweet from Trump in the wake of the London Bridge terror attack, where the President said the United States needed a “travel ban”.

-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!

Mr. Aslan sent out this tweet shortly after deleting his original obscenity-filled tweet:

-I should not have used a profanity to describe the President when responding to his shocking reaction to the #LondonAttacks. My statement:

Incredibly, CNN’s response to the controversy was noting that Aslan is “not an employee of CNN” and that kind of language is “never appropriate.”

“Reza Aslan is not a CNN employee, but does host a series on the network,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. “We are pleased that he has apologized for his tweets. That kind of discourse is never appropriate.”

Aslan claimed it was not like him to use derogatory language, but some of his past tweets tell a different story.

Aslan has tweeted multiple times using profanity and derogatory language, especially when talking about Republicans or conservative leaning individuals.

Despite his claims that his attack on Trump “was not like him” history proves it is, in fact, exactly “like him.”

Why CNN keeps this “non-employee” on their payroll is beyond me.
