An aide helping with conservative darling Ben Carson’s presidential exploratory committee recently deleted his twitter account after some offensive tweets —including one telling President Barack Obama to “bend over bitch”— caught public attention.
The tweets were by Republican political operative Jim Dornan, who previously worked for the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries as well as a number of campaigns. He deleted his twitter account, after Buzzfeed reached out to him about the tweets. It’s not clear what Dornan’s role would be in Carson campaign.
In one tweet Dornan wrote, “I’m looking forward to McConnell shoving his fist up Obama’s ass. Although he will, no doubt, like it.” He also called Obama “dipshit” in one tweet. In another Dornan called Ferguson, Missouri protesters “thugs.” He blamed Obama for anti-semitic violence as well. In yet another tweet Dornan said he thought Obama is “a complete sociopath.”
Dornan also bashed MSNBC’s Chris Matthews calling him a “freaking moron” and an “ahole.”
He also took aim at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), calling the likely presidential candidate an “idiot.”
A campaign spokesman conceded to Buzzfeed that he did “see the issue with his Twitter.”
