What a day it’s turning out to be for the Trump campaign – first they’re forced to fire Corey Lewandowski, and then THIS guy is fired over his celebratory tweet about it!!
Wow. Caputo was the head of the communications for Trump’s caucus operations team, which makes the errant tweet even more ironically hilarious.
It didn’t take long before he announced he was out too!!
“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 Convention. Let’s make this immediate,” Caputo wrote in a letter to campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, according to a copy obtained by CNN.
Caputo also said he deeply respects Trump as well as Manafort and Gates.
“I wish you success in the months ahead. 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,” he said.
Trump had been bragging that he was ahead in the polls with only 30 staffers while Hillary was behind with way more staffers. Just a week later, he’s way down in the polls, and down to 28 staffers…
