CNN knew who he was when they hired him.
Ah sure ‘n’ begorrah a son ‘o’ the old sod he is!
He doesn’t sound like a white bible thumping right winged conservative.
Bet his resignation was rejected.
These guys don’t get let go for this kind of stuff.
Some of the “being unearthed” information is simply things they are too lazy or unwilling to notice. And FR is often a great place to “unearth” these little overlooked details the left would prefer to ignore.
I’m not even a little surprised.
Hope he doesn’t come here to win a Congressional seat.
That was PAST Antisemitic!!
It was grotesque, sick and repugnant.
Antisemitic to me is saying “ah, the Jews have all the money”.
It’s wrong, but it’s NOT on the level of saying they are PIGS!!!!!
I don’t know what the next step is after antisemitism but I guess ABJECT HATRED would be a good phrase for it.
A Nazi at CNN? How about that?!
Good bye. Good riddance.
Its those Shia Amish.
They fired him only because he did what he did public.
I agree. And they probably told him to come back un noticed tomorrow and we will quietly hire you back.
A racist at 17? Seems odd. Unless it’s motivated due to his Islamic faith.
Then, not so much!
Why should he resign? Sounds like his views are totally compatible with CNN.
