A former Hillary volunteer who slammed the widow of fallen SEAL has been fired. Dan Grilo, according to his twitter profile was a former volunteer for both Hillary Clinton and Obama. Dan Grilo tweeted last night “Sorry, Owens’ wife, you’re not helping yourself or your husband’s memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you.”

Statement from his former employee Liberty Advisor Group
“Last night during President Trump’s speech, a Liberty Advisor Group employee sent out an offensive and inappropriate tweet regarding the Gold Star family that was being rightly honored before Congress and the Nation. The personal views of this individual do not represent Liberty and we vigorously disavow them,” the Liberty Advisor Group said in a statement posted to its website.

Hatred from the other side. I would think this is beyond what a human is capable of saying to someone, but it’s not! pic.twitter.com/nNVfFWJmDh

Fox News Reports:
The tweet quickly zipped around social media as commentators on both sides of the aisle were outraged by the swipe. Donald Trump Jr. called the tweet an example of “hatred from the other side.”
Grilo followed up, apologizing for what we called a “poorly worded tweet.”
Grilo’s account soon went private, and was then deleted entirely. But the tweets were saved and archived by other Twitter users.
Grilo’s LinkedIn page says he works as a principal for the Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group. But as of Wednesday morning, Grilo’s profile page on the site had been deleted, and the company later confirmed that an employee had sent what they called “an offensive and inappropriate tweet” regarding the Gold Star family.
In a statement, the company said that while the message was from his personal account, “his comments were inconsistent with the Company’s values.”
