It took one especially egregious act for CNN to finally give him the ax, but many viewers have been asking, “What in the wide, wide world of sports took them so darn long?”

We now wish a no-so-fond farewell to cloying, cringeworthy Trump surrogate Jeffrey Lord, with a hearty “don’t let the door hitcha where Himmler splitcha!”

CNN on Thursday fired contributor and staunch Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord after he tweeted a Nazi salute.

“Nazi salutes are indefensible,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. “Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network.”

Lord sent the tweet as part of a back-and-forth with Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters for America, a prominent liberal group.

The New Republic put together 20 minutes of CNN pundits bringing Lord to the woodshed. Grab the popcorn and enjoy!
