Karl Penhaul’s gone – but just how close are Jeff Zucker and Donald Trump?

Karl Penhaul, the international correspondent who went on a rant about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, was subsequently dropped from the network.

But… just how close are CNN president Jeff Zucker and Trump?

Well, fairly close, as it turns out.

As a tipster pointed out, Trump was more than supportive of CNN’s decision to name Zucker its next president:

And in a video, Zucker said, “I love Donald, I think he’s a charismatic, magnetic figure, and I think he’s the reason that show [The Apprentice] has worked.”

Remember… Zucker was Trump’s boss during his tenure at NBC.

  1. Yes Karl was ranting and using unprofessional language. It was really unbecoming of a CNN reporter, the move was justified. Won’t be losing any sleep on this knob.
