CNN has again fired someone based on their social media posts.
CNN is cutting ties with documentary series “Believer” host Reza Aslan after he posted an anti-Trump message on Twitter. Aslan called the president a “piece of shit,” in a hard-hitting and critical tweet as a reaction to Trump’s response to the recent London attacks.
