Throwing caution to the wind, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria went on a profanity-laced on-air rant Friday while expressing his contempt for President Donald Trump.
Appearing on “CNN Tonight,” Zakaria said Trump became president by “bulls**tting” his way to the White House, telling host Don Lemon that he “got into trouble during the campaign” for saying pretty much the same thing — he called Trump a “bulls**t artist” last year.
“I think the President is somewhat indifferent to things that are true or false,” Zakaria said. “He has spent his whole life bull sh*tting. He has succeeded by bull sh*tting. He has gotten into the Presidency by bull sh*tting.”
“It’s very hard to tell someone at that point that bull sh*t doesn’t work because look at the results right?”

Zakaria went on to say results show that when Trump sees something in the news, “he doesn’t particularly care if it’s true or not, he just put it out there.”
Through it all, Lemon sat there like a toad on a stool while his guest spewed vulgarity.
Fair-minded viewers — assuming the network has any — must have been wondering where Zakaria kept his bulls**t meter during the Obama presidency.
