CNN faced ridicule on social media over the weekend after it aired a segment showcasing self-described witches who are offended by President Trump’s repeated use of the word “witch hunt.”

“Witches of the world have a problem with President Trump. Here’s Jeanne Moos,” CNN host Kate Bolduan declared before cutting to a report by Ms. Moos on “OutFront.”

In the segment, Ms. Moos interviewed two self-described witches who take offense to Mr. Trump’s characterization of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as a “witch hunt.”

“Really disgraceful. I mean, thousands of people were executed in Europe on suspicion of witchcraft,” said David Salisbury, author of “Witchcraft Activism: A Toolkit for Magical Resistance.”

“Closer to home, there were the Salem witch trials,” added Ms. Moos. “Nineteen supposed witches were hanged.”

Yates Garcia, a “practicing witch,” said Mr. Trump’s flippant use of the term shows his “ignorance.”
