Michael Caputo Out at Trump Campaign After Sending Mean Tweet About Lewandowski

Screen Shot 2016-06-20 at 4.43.24 PMA whole six hours ago, an adviser and head of the communications for Donald Trump’s caucus operations team named Michael Caputo responded to new of Corey Lewandowski‘s firing as campaign manager by tweeting, “Ding dong the witch is dead!” He capped it off with a shot of the iconic Wizard of Oz scene that shows the Wicked Witch’s feet peeking out from under a house. Classy!

Now, he’s gotten the boot from the campaign, too.

According to CNN, he wrote a letter to chairman Paul Manafort and right-hand-man Rick Gates that said this:

I regret sending out a tweet today alluding to the firing of Corey Lewandowski. In hindsight, that was too exuberant a reaction to this personnel move. I know this is a distraction from the kind of campaign you want to run, so I’m resigning my position as director of communications for caucus operations at the 2016 Republican Convention. Let’s make this immediate.

Seriously, what is going on at the Trump campaign?
