A bigoted Trump appointee at the famed U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has just quit but not before announcing she is teaming up with infamous conspiracy theorists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman at a Thursday press conference, where she will discuss her "Christian beliefs."
Merritt Corrigan, who once complained the U.S. is in the clutches of a “homo-empire” that pushes a “tyrannical LGBT agenda,” according to Pro-Publica, made several announcements via her now unlocked but mostly-all deleted Twitter account.
Playing the role of a victim of anti-religious bigotry, Corrigan wrote: "For too long, I’ve remained silent as the media has attacked me for my Christian beliefs, which are shared by the majority of Americans."
Among them, she says, that "Gay marriage isn’t marriage." The vast majority of Americans believe that the marriage of two people of the same sex is marriage.
She also appeared to attack transgender Americans, saying, "Men aren’t women."
Corrigan also erroneously attacked a Democratic Senator who is very supportive of religion, Cory Booker, as a "radical anti-Christian leftist."
Politico's Daniel Lippman reported on Corrigan's resignation. She attacked him too:
On Monday the House Foreign Affairs Committee commented on Corrigan's resignation, and noted last month it said she is "dangerous" in a press release that called for her to quit. Corrigan demanded Chairman Engel debate her, Burkman, and Wohl.
Jacob Wohl, who is a partner with Jack Burkman, has attempted to frame Dr. Anthony Fauci, Robert Mueller, Pete Buttigieg, and waged false attacks against Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Ilhan Omar, and Elizabeth Warren. As USA Today reported, Wohl also falsely claimed "that pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats and media outlets were a left-wing 'false flag' operation."
Among the few tweets she left up, aside from ones posted today, is this one of her with white nationalism sympathizer Tucker Carlson.
