Never-Trump columnist makes vile attack against ex-campaign staffer’s ‘toddlers’, quickly fired by USA Today

A bitter, intensely personal online exchange between former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo and Cheri Jacobus, the now former USA Today columnist, took an ugly turn when the Trump critic attacked Caputo’s daughters, suggesting that they be used at “parties” by convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein, of course, being the disgraced financier and Bill Clinton mega-donor who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting sex from an underage girl.

Jacobus appeared to start the brouhaha when she criticized Caputo in a tweet, and he responded with a series of tweets that used the hashtag #BitterChildlessAlone to mock her.

But she crossed all lines of decency when she brought his young daughters into the fray.

“Are your daughters ugly like you? Or can Trump use them at the Epstein parties so they can survive when you’re broke, bitter, along and in prison for treason?” Jacobus tweeted at one point.

Jacobus is a #NeverTrump Republican who filed (and lost) a $4 million defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump in December 2017, after he called her a “real dummy” on Twitter.

Jacobus continued to defile Caputo’s toddler daughters, referring to them again and again as little more than paid objects to be raped by pedophiles.

In one tweet, she referenced Caputo “whoring out his own daughters,” and in another suggested he pimp one of his daughters out to President Trump — it doesn’t get much more vile than that.

The former USA Today columnist even fantasized about one of his young daughters committing suicide:

USA Today announced late Thursday that Jacobus has been dropped — see fired.

“Our editors in the opinion section became aware of the tweet by freelance columnist Cheri Jacobus just after noon today,” a spokesperson for the company told TheWrap Thursday evening.

“An hour later after researching the issue, our editors let Jacobus know that she would no longer be writing for USA Today. We have asked her to remove the USA Today affiliation from her bio.”
