Things are getting tense out there in the media world of CNN. So tense, in fact, that Reza Aslan (a CNN host) publicly called President Donald Trump “a piece of s**t.”

This outraged response was in retaliation to a tweet made by President Trump on June 3rd at 4:17pm. The president insisted that American be “smart, vigilant, and tough” in reaction toward Saturday night’s London Bridge attack. In addition, Trump urged for the enforcement of the Travel Ban in order to provide an additional layer of safety.

However, Aslan obviously did not agree with Trump’s remarks, and publicly bashed him on Twitter. According to World Net Daily:

Aslan posted and has since removed his uncensored tweet, which stated:

“This piece of sh– is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”


Sunday afternoon, Aslan posted an apology for his obscene outburst.

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

“When in the first few minutes of the terror attack in London, the President of the United States tweeted about his travel ban, I lost my cool and responded to him in a derogatory fashion. That’s not like me. 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.”

The majority of Aslan’s notoriety comes from an episode of the host’s CNN show, “Believer.” In the highly controversial episode, Aslan and a shunned Aghori guru ate human brain together. Although the episode caused widespread condemnation, Aslan’s reputation spread as a result.

Despite Aslan’s apology, it appears that the CNN host didn’t get the last word in the argument. Former Governor Mike Huckabee released a statement on Twitter against the CNN host. In the tweet, Huckabee stated the following:

So far, it seems unlikely that Aslan will have any severe repercussions for his initial tweet toward President Trump. However, time will tell how much effect his statement, if any, has had on the public.
