As Donald Trump said on the Apprentice, "You're fired."
This time it was Trump's Virginia campaign chair Corey Stewart who was shown the door, shortly after posting on Facebook he was headed to "start a rebellion against GOP establishment pukes" and showing up at a rally outside Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington.
With Trump tanking in the polls in Virginia, Stewart may have decided his best bet was to rail against the RNC. Trump Virginia campaign co-chairman told the Virginian-Pilot Stewart was warned repeatedly not to attend the event.
"We are not going to condone publicity stunts, counter to the campaign's mission, in order to enhance somebody's gubernatorial campaign position," Fredericks told the newspaper.
But there was Stewart calling out "the RNC established pukes" at the rally, as published in a video on Twitter by WJLA's Jeff Goldberg.

Now the Trump campaign will ikely rely on Fredericks to plow forward with less than a month to election day. Does this bolster Stewart's chances for the GOP nomination in the governor's race? Time will tell.
