Donald Trump’s presidential campaign showed a staffer the door Sunday after he was accused of writing a string of racially charged Facebook posts.
“Effective immediately, low level part-time consultant, Sam Nunberg is no longer associated with the Donald J. Trump for President campaign,” campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, said in a statement to the New York Times.
The firing came after Business Insider published a story on Friday saying Nunberg had used racial slurs on his Facebook page in posts dating back to 2007, including calling Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter the N-word.
“Meeting Rev. Sharpton today, no joke- he will tell him that his daughter is N—!’ the website said Nunberg wrote in a post dated Aug. 25, 2007. The site also included screen grabs of the questionable posts.
Nunberg also allegedly criticized Republicans on Facebook, calling former New York mayor and 2008 presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani a “punk” with a “bad lisp.”
He was no fan of Sen. John McCain either, allegedly calling the former GOP presidential contender “McLame” and an “open border Republican” who is throwing the GOP “down Taco Bell’s toilet.”
Nunberg, who is an attorney, said he didn’t “recall” the posts and told Business Insider he was “shocked.”
He has worked for Trump for several years but was fired in 2014 after Buzzfeed published a story mocking Trump, and eventually rehired.
