CNN host Fareed Zakaria says Trump 'got the presidency by bulls---ting'
CNN host Fareed Zakaria has some choice words to describe President Donald Trump — and one word in particular.
During Friday night’s episode of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the foreign affairs journalist repeatedly accused Trump of “bulls—ting.”
“I think the president is somewhat indifferent to things that are true or false,” said Zakaria. “He has spent his whole life bulls—ting. He has succeeded by bulls—ting. He has gotten the presidency by bulls—ting. It’s very hard to tell somebody at that point that bulls— doesn’t work, because look at the results, right? But that’s what he does — he sees something, he doesn’t particularly care if it’s true or not, he just puts it out there. And then he puts something else out. … When pushed on it, he doesn’t take responsibility: ‘I wasn’t saying that, I was just quoting somebody else.’”
His repeated use of the profanity caused a stir on Twitter. The S-word, while banned from broadcast television (the FCC has granted some exceptions during later viewing hours), is not uncommon on cable television.
