CNN Bounces Polarizing Contributor For 'Sieg Heil' Tweet

Jeffrey Lord tweets

"Just in case you decide to delete your tweet later, Nazi-D-bag", wrote one follower, along with a screen grab of the tweet. Lord has a history of making bigoted and ridiculous commentary and has pushed false claims to defend Trump.

"Nazi salutes are indefensible", a CNN rep said in a statement.

As TheWrap previously reported Lord tweeted "Sieg Heil", a Nazi salute, during a Twitter argument with Media Matters president Angelo Carusone.

Former CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord.

At the time Lord was a counterweight to CNN's other conservative commentators, who were all dismissive of Trump's candidacy.

NBA Live 18 reveals launch date and cover star James Harden
Warriors. "Embrace debate" has taken over sports television programming, and now even sports video games aren't safe from it. For instance, the cover athlete for the game has now been revealed- it will be James Harden of the Houston Rockets .

Carusone had taken issue with a Lord column from Wednesday, and told him on Twitter that his piece "is bullshit and filled with lies".

Lord was sniping with Carsone over an American Spectator column Lord wrote blasting Media Matters as "anti-free speech bigots" for promoting a boycott against Sean Hannity's sponsors. "Not Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany or Communist Russia".

In another reply to his tweet, Lord said he was "mocking Nazis and fascists".

Carusone responded to Lord in a tweet, "Your headline has a mistake in it".

Carusone asked, "Why do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you don't take yourself seriously". He also repeatedly accused his critics of being fascists, or of supporting fascists.
