A CNN host's meltdown

We have long known the press doesn't like Republicans, loathes conservatives, and absolutely hates Donald Trump. Still, they do insist that their coverage and stories are balanced, and they themselves are committed to nothing but the truth.

Except when they left the mask fall for a moment or two, as CNN host Reza Aslan did on Twitter regarding the President's decision to leave the Paris climate accord. Said Aslan:

This piece of shit is not just an embarrassment to America and a stain on the presidency. He's an embarrassment to humankind.

That remark upset a lot of people, some of whom called on CNN to fire him. Aslan apologized (though not really), saying he "lost his cool," and "that's not like me."

Except that is exactly what Mr. Aslan as like, as his long history of profanity laced tirades (again, all on Twitter) illustrate. You can read some of them here.

Mr. Aslan, it appears, has anger issues. He should take some time to figure those out, and while he does, stay away from Twitter. And as for CNN?

You stay classy.
