Although Fox News contributor Allen West denies he was fired from his post-Congressional job at Pajamas Media, BuzzFeed says he was pushed out after he called a fellow staffer a "Jewish American princess" and told her to "Shut up."
Two sources familiar with what happened told BuzzFeed that West had gotten into an argument with a female employee and called her a “Jewish American princess” while telling her to “shut up.”
Reached by phone, West told BuzzFeed he was leaving his job voluntarily, though one source familiar with the situation told BuzzFeed he had been fired. He did not deny that an exchange with the employee had occurred, but said it hadn’t led to his leaving the company.
“No, I didn’t get fired,” West said. “I’m leaving to pursue political aspirations. That’s it. There’ll be a statement that comes out and it’s effective in October.”
Asked specifically whether he referred to the employee as a “Jewish American princess,” West said simply, “There was an exchange, that’s all.”
Color us not surprised. We've long reported on West's unhinged rhetoric which Fox News has either whitewashed, ignored or even applauded. So long as he doesn't say it to the wrong person at Fox, telling someone to "Shut up" should keep him in good stead there.
“One morning I shot an elephant in my Pajamas — how he got into my Pajamas, I don’t know”
West, Rafael, Randy, and the other loons, with the help of Hannocchio the RINO and the Groucho Marx impersonator, will surely destroy the U.S.
Tie this around the neck of the RNC.
Poor guy….he thought he was working at Fox.
Even though the term is entirely appropriate, it just struck me as particularly hilarious for this situation.
