Trump’s wacko Twitter rant prompts aide’s resignation: ‘I’m not comfortable with the campaign’s direction’

This Friday, a Florida aide to Donald Trump resigned her position, saying that the campaign is going in a direction that she finds disturbing.

“It is clear the campaign is now going in a direction I am no longer comfortable with and I have decided to move on,” Healy Baumgardner, a longtime GOP operative, told Bloomberg.

Baumgardner’s resignation comes in the wake of a series of unhinged late-night tweets from Trump targeting former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, whose name was introduced into the 2016 election during this Monday’s debate.

Clinton used Machado as an example of Trump’s record when it comes to his treatment of women.

“He called this woman Miss Piggy. Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping’ because she was Latina,” Clinton said during the debate. “She has become a U.S. citizen, and you can bet she’s going to vote this November.”

If Trump had dropped the issue after the tweet above, the story might have faded. But continuing his late-night tweetstorm, the GOP nominee accused Machado of appearing in a “sex tape,” but according to Snopes.com, the tape is “nothing more than some grainy, night-vision footage.”

True to form, Trump floated a conspiracy theory about Machado’s status as a U.S. citizen.
