CNN Apologizes for Producer Joke About Trump’s Plane Crashing

CNN apologized on Friday after one of its producers was caught on video joking off-air about President-elect Donald Trump’s plane crashing. “An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday," CNN said in a statement. “We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.” The woman was speaking with correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, who was on-camera waiting to do a live hit on the network. The initial video was obtained by FTV Live.
