Donald Trump was known for firing people on Twitter during his one term in the White House.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielson, Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, White House Counsel Don McGahn, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and Christopher Krebs, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, all found out they were fired after seeing it Twitter.
But, someone getting fired via tweet appears to be a novel concept to Donald Trump Jr, and he does not like it one bit. He lambasted bosses of the Washington Football Team whose cheerleaders learned of changes to their squad on Twitter. Trump Jr. said the bosses lacked the decency to look the women in the eyes when they disbanded their squad.
“What we found out this week, is that the Washington Redskins (sic) just got rid of their cheerleaders,” Trump, Jr. said in a video.
“Apparently they didn’t have the decency to tell them face-to-face,” he said. “Their cheerleading squad was disbanded, but apparently they read about it on Twitter. They didn’t say, ‘Hey, come to the office, we gotta talk. This is insanity, guys.”
“They didn’t even have the decency to let these women know in person. They read about it on Twitter,” he repeated.
According to Huffpost, the women were not fired. They learned of the team’s decision to replace their all-female cheerleading squad with a coed dance crew on Twitter. The cheerleaders are allowed to audition for the new team.
Trump Jr. called the decision to include males in the squad “woke stupidity”.
