A CNN crew fantasized about President-elect Donald Trump’s plane crashing while setting up for his announcement that he negotiated a deal that would keep 1,000 Carrier Corporation jobs from going to Mexico.
While CNN Correspondent Suzanne Malveaux and her crew were setting up sound levels and discussing how the live broadcast would be played in Indianapolis, a producer can be heard off-camera telling her what signal she would give after Trump’s plane safely landed.
She followed that up with what was meant to be a “joke.”
She apparently made another signal and said, “That means his plane’s crashed.”
It sounded like she quickly added, “I’m kidding” as she and Malveaux had a laugh seconds before the live broadcast.
After the clip made the rounds on the internet, CNN offered the following response:
“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday. We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”
