Ex-Clinton volunteer fired after writing derogatory tweet about Navy SEAL widow

Dan Grillo is facing the adverse consequences that come with crossing a Navy SEAL’S widow. The roguish Idiot took to Twitter to mock the widow of a Navy SEAL who was honored by President Donald Trump on Tuesday night in his address to Congress.

Grillo was a former Clinton and Obama staffer, that explains why he resulted in such a disgusting behavior. President Trump’s remarks in Congress drew a two-minute standing ovation from the entire chamber including most non-responsive Democrats, meanwhile, Carryn wept as she looked heavenward and joined the clapping crowd.

However, the moment saw Grilo tweet saying that Owen’s wife was not helping herself or her husband’s memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot, adding that Trump was using her.

Grilo couldn’t get away with the rude comments, a reaction was immediate as many identified his employer, a Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group, and called for him to be fired immediately.

Donald Trump Jr. also responded by pointing out the hatred from the other side, adding that he thought that was beyond what a human is capable of saying to someone, however that was not the case.

Grilo made attempts to cover up and backtrack the tweet. However, he was unsuccessful. He went ahead and posted an apology for his ‘’poorly worded tweet,’’ as he set his Twitter account to private and then he deleted it.

Fortunately, the contacts to his employer bore fruit as his profile was removed from the company website and he got terminated.

His employer, Liberty Advisor Group, made a statement on its website saying that a Liberty Advisor Group employee had sent out an offensive and inappropriate tweet regarding the Gold Star family that was being rightly honored before Congress and the Nation, adding that the personal views of Grilo did not represent Liberty and that the company was going to disavow them.

The statement also said that despite the message and the subsequent apologies that were sent from an individual’s personal account, and bore no connections to Grilo’s work with liberty, his comments were inconsistent with the Company’s values and that the unyielding respect it has for the members of the Armed Forces.

The company emphasized that the comments in the tweet were unacceptable and that Grilo, who issued them, was no longer affiliated with Liberty. The company also said that it places a high value on the men and women of America’s military who fight to defend us. Finally, the company apologized to all those who have served the nations and anyone who was offended by the comments.

Thank you for publishing these details. I am proud to know that Liberty has the pride and love for America and our people to disavow the statements made by someone who hasn't the slightest understanding of pride or sacrifice for county nor the decency to mourn for those who have given all or to demonstrate the barest of condolences to the loved ones left behind. He has reaped what he's sown.

First you spell his name with two "l's" then one. Please sober up before writing. Excellent article otherwise.
