CNN host Reza Aslan labelled Donald Trump as a “piece of s**t” and a “man-baby” after the president’s response to the London van and knife attack rose controversy.
Reza Aslan picked holes in Trump, saying that he was an “embarrassment to America” after Aslan took to Twitter to express his disappointment and to denounce the idea of using the London Bridge attack to prove political points.
He’s an embarrassment to humankind
The President quotes Sadiq Khan’s, saying,”At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’”
After Trump exploited the attack to promote his Muslim travel ban executive order, Aslan took to Twitter to denounce such capitalization, saying,”This piece of s**t is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”
CNN’s Aslan has later deleted his tweet and made an apology.
He said later: “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.”
Trump exploits the attack promoting domestic agenda
As soon as Trump learnt about the London Bridge attack, he took to Twitter to spread the news even though they were unconfirmed at that time, which turned people against him as well.
He said: “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!
“Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!
“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.
“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’
“Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!”
