Monday morning, the Trump campaign announced they had parted ways with campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Not long after the announcement, a Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo posted his relief on Twitter, with a picture of the Wicked Witch of the West from “The Wizard of Oz”, and the note, “Ding dong the witch is dead.” Hours later, he too left the campaign.
Caputo made this statement: “I regret sending out a tweet today alluding to the firing of Corey Lewandowski,” Caputo said. “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.”
It’s been alluded to that Lewandowski was fired through a plan construed by the Trump children. However, Caputo’s removal was clearly his own unprofessional undoing.
