While not nearly as titillating as when Donald Trump fired George Takai or Meat Loaf on Celebrity Apprentice, it is still amazing:
Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez has (sort-of) fired former Trump Apprentice Pepi Diaz… withdrawing his support for Diaz because of (and we love this):
(This is where you imagine us in a room laughing… repeating it… “unnecessary negativity!”)
While we are asking voters to also fire both Republican SD40 candidates, we have a touch of sympathy for Diaz. After all, this isn’t the first time he’s been fired. Trump fired him on The Apprentice many years ago, and Diaz has since refused to leave his side. He’s followed his former boss around… putting his arms around him. Endorsing him. It’s a bit weird, but Trump seems to tolerate it.
FOR THE LOVE OF FLORIDA, LET’S STOP PEPI FROM BRINGING TRUMP-LIKE POLICIES BACK WITH HIM TO TALLAHASSEE. DONATE.
We do want address this “unnecessary negativity” part:
While it’s true that primary has been relentlessly negative, even unnecessarily so… what is most negative is the affects that Pepi’s votes in legislature have had on the people of SD40 and more broadly of Florida. From his support of Trump’s healthcare agenda, to his work to undermine the environment while bolstering insurance companies, there’s a whole litany of negativity aimed at Florida’s citizens.
Combat Pepi Diaz’s unnecessarily negative policies by helping us elect a Democrat in the really important SD40.
