A CNN pundit faced fierce backlash on Twitter after she called President Donald Trump "retarded" in a social media post, which has now been deleted.

Frequent CNN guest, Sophia Nelson, reacted to critical tweets about the president from fellow anti-Trump Republican Rick Wilson.

Nelson replied to he tweet, saying:

"They just always got an excuse to cover for his retarded ass!"

The backlash came quickly against Nelson, who said she deleted the tweet after the father of a special needs child called her out "with class and grace."

But Nelson complained that the "nasty ass twitter bully mob" still came after her.

The CNN pundit admitted the word "retarded" was offensive to many people.

But Nelson continued to defend herself for her choice of language.

She argued the word was used frequently among people of her generation in the past, claiming the reference to the president as "retarded" was "being kind."

Unsurprisingly, Nelson is also a senior adviser to the Lincoln Project, whose mission is to "defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box."

Wilson is a co-founder of the initiative.

When a Daily Caller reporter noted Nelson's position, she doubled down and insisted on calling the president "retarded" once again.

"This is a great hit job you guys are attempting because I called Trump a 'retarded ass.' He is that," Nelson wrote.

"This has zero references to disabled or special needs persons."

On Monday, President Trump humiliated CNN's chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a fiery exchange at the daily coronavirus briefing.

Acosta tried to make a big splash in the Rose Garden when he attempted to grill the president over his past rhetoric on the COVID-19 outbreak in the weeks leading up to the national crisis.

His plan severely backfired, though, as Trump dropped the hammer by explaining that he is putting America first instead of pursuing CNN's agenda to sow fear and division.

"What do you say to Americans who are upset with you over the way you downplayed this crisis?" Acosta asked.

Trump replied:

"It will go away, and I do want them to stay calm, and we are doing a great job."

"If you look at those individual statements, they’re all true."

"Stay calm. It will go away."

"You know it is going away, and it will go away, and we’ll have a great victory."
