An intern for a Democrat Senator from New Hampshire will not be fired after cursing out President Donald J. Trump in the Capitol Rotunda last week.
“We are aware of the situation and have taken disciplinary action, including a one-week suspension and revoking her Congressional intern ID badge (thereby restricting her access to the Capitol), in response to her breach of office policies regarding respectful and appropriate conduct. We also facilitated contact with Capitol Police,” Aaron Jacobs, spokesman for Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) told Fox News.
The intern has been identified as Caitlin Marriot, 21, who screamed “f*** you” at Trump. Marriot yelled rudely, then ducked back into a group of interns, causing Capitol Police to be “on lookout alert.”
It would appear that interns are about as difficult to fire as any other federal government employee. If cursing out a sitting president is not grounds for termination, what is? In what other industry would an intern survive such an egregious misstep?
Hassan’s office did not return Big League Politics’ request for comment.
