Late Friday night, CNN host Fareed Zakaria had some complaints about President Trump that revolved around one word in particular.
Appearing beside host Don Lemon on CNN Tonight in a discussion about the president's unsubstantiated claims that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election, a frustrated Zakaria said Trump is “indifferent” to the truth before launching into a profanity-laced comment about the commander-in-chief.
“He’s spent his whole life bulls———. He’s succeeded by bulls———. He has gotten the presidency by bulls———,” Zakaria said, uncensored. “It’s very hard to tell somebody at that point that bulls— doesn’t work, because look at the results, right?”
CNN later shared the clip on the CNN Tonight Twitter account (graphic language):

CNN did not immediately return a request for comment. As a cable channel, CNN is not regulated by the FCC, but it is still beholden to both advertisers and its audience, which is often watching the network in a public place like an airport, restaurant or office.
When CNN re-aired Zakaria's comments Saturday morning, the profanity was noticably censored.
It’s not the first time Zakaria used that word uncensored on the network. Back in August of last year, Zakaria called Trump a “bulls— artist” live on CNN during a morning report.
