WOODBRIDGE, VA — Donald Trump’s Virginia campaign is ending its relationship with state chair Corey Stewart following a Monday afternoon protest event at the RNC headquarters.
Stewart was promoting his busy day just minutes before news broke that the campaign would replace him over the event.
“Tons of interviews today on behalf of Mr. Trump,” Stewart wrote on Facebook on Monday afternoon. “Then, I went to start a rebellion against GOP establishment pukes who betrayed Trump.”
It wasn’t long after that post that news broke of his exit from the campaign.
“He is being replaced, effective immediately,” said Trump Deputy Campaign Manager David Bossie in a campaign statement. “Corey made this decision when he staged a stunt in front of the RNC without the knowledge or approval of the Trump campaign.”
It sounds like Corey was being a good soldier and he got dumped. I don’t feel sorry for him at all.
Now the Republicans should dump him for excusing horrible behavior and for staging a rebellion of sorts. What is going on here? Stay tuned.
