A political commentator for CNN has come under fire after posting a tone-deaf tweet suggesting “Miso Honey” was an excellent choice for a food truck name.

Chris Cillizza, who runs a multiplatform brand called “The Point,” left no further explanation about the post, aside from claiming that he “drove by” an actual establishment with such name.

 

Prior to joining CNN, Cillizza wrote for “The Fix”, The Washington Post’s daily political weblog.
