    At least this person had the balls to do it under his real name on Facebook.

    Donald Trump’s campaign fired a staffer Sunday for what it said were racially offensive Facebook posts.

    “Effective immediately, Sam Nunberg, a low-level political adviser, is no longer associated with the Donald Trump For president campaign,” Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said in an interview.

    The firing, first reported by CNN, followed a report Friday by Business Insider that Nunberg had posted slurs and other offensive content on his private Facebook page in entries dating to 2007.

    In one post, Nunberg allegedly called the Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter a “n-----.” In another, he allegedly called President Obama a "Socialist Marxist Islamo Fascist Nazi Appeaser" and mocked Obama's proposal for "Kenyan" health-care reform, Business Insider reported. The posts have apparently been removed, although Nunberg’s Facebook account remained active Sunday.

    Nunberg’s current profile picture is a skull with the words "Keep Calm and Take Revenge,” but an earlier version with his likeness is below.

    Nunberg denied to CNN that he had written the posts, but Lewandowski said Sunday that “independent verification showed … they were on his account.”

    Trump “does not condone” the Facebook messages, Lewandowski said. “We have no tolerance for that in a presidential campaign,” the campaign manager said.

    Nunberg had told CNN on Friday that "anything that was posted under my name does not mean I posted it."

    This is the second time that Trump has fired Nunberg. He was dismissed from Trump’s short-lived 2012 presidential campaign organization, reportedly for facilitating an unflattering Buzzfeed News profile of Trump.

    Anyone dropping n bombs on their public facebook deserves what they get. Lumping this comment of "Socialist Marxist Islamo Fascist Nazi Appeaser" in is just proof that they only really had one thing to catch him on.

    If only they applied this type of justice equally to everyone, especially msnbc's poster boy....

    2007 :facepalm:

    Meanwhile, Obama has refused to classify the Chattanooga murder of Marines by a charming Muslim fellow as terrorism.

    Meanwhile, one of the charming Muslims who tried to commit terror in Garland, TX received his gun courtesy of Obama's Fast and Furious program.

    Or we could talk about personal Facebook accounts from 8 years ago

    I think if a leader has a subordinate who does something wrong, he should immediately resign himself. Suicide, even.

    I don't have a background in public relations, however, that quote seems amazingly stupid. Why wouldn't you say "We have no tolerance for racism," and leave it at that, as opposed to saying that it's ok any other time, except during a presidential campaign?

    Stupid.

    Trump may have more firings to do :dontknow:

    Two things that pisses far right people off about Trump

    He acquires visas for immigrant workers to work in his kitchens, lawns etc...

    He's not racist

    Trump is not popular with the really far right tea party type.

    This one from Mitt Romney always cracked me up as well:

    “So we went to the company and we said, look, you can’t have any illegals working on our property,” said Romney. “I’m running for office, for Pete’s sake, I can’t have illegals."
