CNN Finally Fires Jeffrey Lord

CNN has finally gotten rid of professional Trump fellatrix Jeffrey Lord. It apparently took him posting Nazi slogans mockingly on Twitter to do the trick. The fact that he offered the most gobsmackingly stupid arguments on the air every day has always been deemed irrelevant.

CNN severed ties with Jeffrey Lord on Thursday, hours after he ignited controversy by tweeting the words “Sieg Heil!” at a prominent liberal activist.

“Nazi salutes are indefensible,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. “Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network.”

Lord was not immediately reachable for comment. Earlier in the day, he defended his tweet by saying he was “mocking a fascist.”

The target of his sloganeering was Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters for America, who has been a loud and harsh critic of Lord and of CNN for giving him a platform for his daily defenses of Trump that would, to any rational person, be profoundly embarrassing to utter in public. And he was responding to Media Matters targeting advertisers on Sean Hannity’s show for a boycott. Isn’t it funny how, to right wingers, boycotts of liberal companies are capitalism in action but boycotts by liberals are fascist and “economic terrorism”? They aren’t even pretending to be coherent or consistent.
