Another racist supporter of Donald Trump has been fired for racist remarks. The latest incident occurred after June Pridmore from Birmingham, Alabama went on a racist rant.
Pridmore, who served as senior vice president at Regions Bank, shared a poorly written post on Facebook criticizing President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama and suggesting Trump could put them into slavery.
“I prefer a man who can buy Michele (sic) and Barack and sell them several times over,” Pridmore wrote. “I voted [Trump] in. I like him. He has a beautiful wife unlike the ugly and embarrassing woman, in the White House now. Ms. Trump’s face would make Michele (sic) O’Bama (sic) a Sunday face.”
Pridmore continued with her racist rant by writing, “I’m certainly glad [Trump] he has a lot of money because she he (sic) won’t be bought out like Barack (sic), socialist Muslim O’Bama (sic) or his wife or all those host of relatives they have in the whitehouse (sic) for US to support. They have sponged the US of money flying to every single location in which they could vacation, taking the Grandmother with them. Oh yes, and let us NOT forget they flew the family dog on a separate plane. If any idiot out there thinks that is justified, you deserved him as president.”
Once the Facebook post went live, it created a backlash and the post was eventually noticed by Pridmore’s employer. Executives at Regions Bank investigated the post and decided to fire Pridemore. “Those comments do not reflect our values as a company or the way we do business. The associate is no longer an employee of the company,” a spokesperson for the company said.
Pridemore is the latest White Trump supporter to express racist views following the election. This disturbing trend could get worse once Trump becomes president.
