Trump appointee Carl Higbie resigns over feedback

Trump appointee Carl Higbie resigns

"Effective immediately, Carl Higbie has resigned as Chief of External Affairs at CNCS", said Samantha Jo Warfield, a spokesperson for CNCS, in a statement. You're not alone. It oversees initiatives like AmeriCorps and the Social Innovation Fund - but the fact that has to be explained says much.

Carl Higbie has resigned from the Trump administration after disclosures of anti-Muslim, anti-gay and racist comments that he made as a radio host in 2013 and 2014.

Critics also took exception to comments Higbie made that were seen as racist, including an anecdote based on an experience in which he put out an advertisement offering free firewood.

He continued: "I just don't like Muslim people".

"The president needs to protect America first, and if that means having people that are not protected under our Constitution have some sort of registry so we can understand ― until we can identify the true threat and where it's coming from ― I support it", said Higbie.

On Warrior Talk Radio in August 2014, he said: "Go back to your Muslim s***hole and go crap in your hands and bang little boys on Thursday nights".

Trump was accused by Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of repeatedly using the word "shithole" when speaking about African countries during a meeting about immigration last week at the White House, causing diplomatic outrage in many African countries. In a following episode he revealed what he felt about gay people: "You know, I don't like gay people".

"People who perform violent acts and blame it on PTSD, you know, people who act crazily behind PTSD, is because they have a weaker mind", Higbie said. "The taxpayers are exhausted of supporting government checks going to these people who think that breeding is a form of employment". "I'm not afraid of them. Fine. Do it over in your own corner".

'So go over there, be gay, don't march down in the middle of the street and your drag outfit being fairies and things like that. "'Carl, you're racist, you can't, you're sexist.' I'm like Jesus Christ", Higbie said on "Sound of Freedom" in 2013.

He then compared Muslims to child molestors and being okay with gay sex.

"99 per cent people who write down African-Americans have never been to America", he said. They say, 'oh, of course. They're just awful people.' Well, yeah, most Muslims believe that to have sex with men is okay, which I don't like it all... "They're just awful people". "It's the ideology of a child molester".

"I picked and prodded at every single guest I had in order to try to get a rise out of them", he said on Saturday.
