After Trump fired his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski earlier today Trump’s head of communications for his caucus operations team, Michael Caputo, posted this nasty tweet. The tweet referred to the firing of Lewandowski.
“Ding dong the witch is dead! http://youtu.be/rHJoj9IqeKg”
Later in the day Caputo sent the following message to Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Rick Gates:
“I regret sending out a tweet today alluding to the firing of Corey Lewandowski. In hindsight, that was too exuberant a reaction to this personnel move. I know this is a distraction from the kind of campaign you want to run, so I’m resigning my position as director of communications for caucus operations at the 2016 Republican National Convention. Let’s make this immediate,”
“I wish you success in the months ahead,” he said. “I continue to believe Donald Trump must be elected president in November. With you at the helm, I know he can. Call if I can help.”
