CNN SEVERS TIES WITH JEFFREY LORD FOLLOWING “SIEG HEIL” TWEET

CNN has severed times with Jeffrey Lord following his “Sieg Heil” tweet aimed at Media Matters for America.

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

Lord had been one of CNN’s best-known commentators. He was the first explicitly pro-Donald Trump commentator to join the network, back in August 2015, as a counterweight to CNN’s other conservative commentators, who were all dismissive of Trump’s candidacy.

Other pro-Trump voices joined the network later. CNN now has about a dozen Republican commentators who tend to support the president’s views, along with other Republicans who are critical of the president.”
