Michael Caputo, a former strategist for President Donald J. Trump, spoke with Big League Politics after Cheri Jacobus, a #NeverTrump “Republican” and former USA Today columnist, was fired for calling for the rape of his daughters on Twitter.
“Cheri has been tweeting about my wife and daughters for months,” Caputo told BLP. “At first I engaged her, then ignored her. Nothing worked; her online stalking worsened. Now I simply tweet the hashtag #BitterChildlessAlone in reply because I’ve learned these three words describe her emotional problems.”
Caputo brushed off Jacobus’ behavior.
“She’s bitter the Trump campaign rejected her, she’s angry others have children because her life worked out differently, and she’s slowly turning into a cat lady drinking a box of wine by herself every night, tweeting angrily at the world until it’s all gone,” he said.
“Are your daughters ugly like you?” wrote Cheri Jacobus to Michael Caputo. “Or can Trump use them at the Epstein parties so you can survive when you’re broke, bitter, along [sic] and in prison for treason?”
Jacobus was referring to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who is known to fly with former President William J. Clinton and other world elites on his private plane dubbed “the Lolita Express” to his private island, where underage girls have been reportedly used for sex.
Caputo tweeted a reply to USA Today, for whom Jacobus writes, asking if her conduct was acceptable. Jacobus also writes op-eds in The Hill.
he didn’t stop there, though. When another Twitter user asked Jacobus if her animus was due to a sexual attraction that she had for Caputo, Jacobus suggested that Caputo may be sexually attracted to his own daughters: Again, Caputo replied to USA Today asking if Jacobus’ behavior was acceptable.
BLP Passage Ends.
Apparently, USA Today decided that Jacobus’ behavior was not exemplary of its desired image. She was fired yesterday afternoon.
“Our editors in the opinion section became aware of the tweet by freelance columnist Cheri Jacobus just after noon today,” a USA Today spokesperson said. “An hour later after researching the issue, our editors let Jacobus know that she would no longer be writing for USA Today.”
Update: The Hill reached out to Big League Politics to inform us that Jacobus has not written a piece for them since February, and will not be writing for the website in the future.
