Man booted out of Marine Corps after video surfaces of him screaming at black woman during Trump rally
A man caught on video at a Donald Trump rally screaming at an African-American woman has been kicked out of the Marine Corps, WAVE3 reported.
The Marines identified the man as Joseph Pryor in a statement. Pryor had used a screenshot from the viral video as the cover photo for his Facebook page.
“Joseph Pryor demonstrated poor judgment in his use of social media that associates him with a racially charged altercation at a political rally. Hatred toward any group of individuals is not tolerated in the Marine Corps and he is being discharged from our delayed entry program effective yesterday,” the Marine Corps Recruiting Station in Louisville said in a statement.
In the ugly video, the young woman was yelled at, called slurs and shoved by white Trump supporters.

Pryor was discharged from a “delayed entry program,” which is a stopping point for “hopeful Marines” to prepare them for boot camp, according to ABC Action News.
