Trump Gives Ousted CNNer Jeffrey Lord a Shoutout During Tax Speech: ‘One of My Few Sources of Truth’

Jeffrey Lord has largely limited his public profile to occasional Fox News and Sean Hannity appearances ever since he was fired in August by CNN for tweeting “Sieg heil.”

But on Wednesday, Lord made it out to Middletown, PA — a short drive from his home near Harrisburg — to watch President Donald Trump deliver an address on tax reform.

And the President noticed.

“Hi Jeffrey. The great Jeffrey Lord!” Trump said, pointing to Lord.

The crowd gave Lord a round of applause.

“He was on fake news CNN for a long time,” Trump said. “He was one of my few sources of truth. Thank you, Jeffrey for being here.”

Lord — who now serves as a Breitbart contributor — received another hand from the crowd, before receiving one final compliment from Trump.

“Good man,” Trump said.
