As Twitchy told you yesterday, Cheri Jacobus managed to dial her already raging Trump Derangement Syndrome to eleventy when she went after GOP political strategist Michael Caputo’s daughters:

For some reason, she hasn’t deleted that tweet. Guess she’s proud of it. Hope she’s proud of herself for this, too:

More from TheWrap:

“Our editors in the opinion section became aware of the tweet by freelance columnist Cheri Jacobus just after noon today,” a spokesperson for the company told TheWrap Thursday evening.

“An hour later after researching the issue, our editors let Jacobus know that she would no longer be writing for USA TODAY,” the spokesperson added. “We have asked her to remove the USA TODAY affiliation from her bio.”

By Friday morning, Jacobus — who once proudly boasted of her affiliation with USA Today in her Twitter profile — had removed any mention of the paper.


Exactly. It’s one thing to duke it out with a grown man. It’s something else entirely to go after that man’s children. Jacobus absolutely crossed a line.

Congratulations, Cheri Jacobus, on out-Trumping Trump.
