Former President Donald Trump created a lucrative second career for himself built on the “F” word – “fired.”
“You’re fired” was Trump’s signature phrase during his long run on “The Apprentice.”
But now three lawyers in Minnesota, including a pregnant woman, and two other former employees are alleging their boss dropped Trump’s favored non-profane F-word on them because they supported the 45th president.
It’s a story that perfectly captures ingrained, media-induced leftist lunacy now gripping half the nation.
According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, a St. Cloud law firm that specializes in bankruptcy cases “is in turmoil after a round of firings that began with its leader going after employees he believed were supporters of former President Donald Trump,” according to a lawsuit the former staffers filed.
“In the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, when Trump supporters violently stormed the building to prevent congressional certification of Joe Biden’s election as president, the suit alleges that Wesley Scott sought to fire employees he believed had made pro-Trump posts on social media,” the paper reported.
“Scott, president of the Kain & Scott law firm, terminated two employees — and then fired three of his law partners after they told him his actions were violating Minnesota law,” according to Star-Tribune.
The paper notes that the firm refers to itself as the “largest and nicest bankruptcy firm” in the state.
According to the Star-Tribune, “Scott was disturbed by the Capitol riot and sent an e-mail in April to all the firm’s lawyers, saying that the ‘traitors on Jan. 6’ should have been shot.”
The paper added, without an irony, that Scott “accused them (the plaintiffs) of planning a ‘coup’ against him.”
Scott told his firm’s operations manager to fire two staffers he deemed “racist” because they had “pro-Trump and pro-police posts on their social media accounts.”
“When she refused to fire the employees, Scott fired her,” the story continued. “Scott then fired an additional employee and threatened to fire another.”
“The three partners confronted Scott, according to court documents, and told him that firing an employee for political beliefs is against state law. Scott then fired them,” the paper reported.
More irony: Scott then “called St. Cloud police to remove [Kelsey] Quarberg (one of the three partners), claiming she was trespassing and physically threatening him.”
The Associated Press reported that Quarberg was pregnant.
“Scott cut off the partners’ phones and e-mail accounts and changed the locks on the offices,” the Star-Tribune reported, and, “He told other law firm employees that the partners had been fired for insubordination, … and disparaged them in an online meeting with the firm’s staff.”
In addition, the fired partners, who combined own 50 percent of the firm, claim Scott sought to prevent them from collecting unemployment and health care benefits and supported then reneged on a negotiated buyout drafted in accordance with the firm’s partnership agreement.
Trump Derangement Syndrome run amok.
