Trump Appointee Known for Homophobic Remarks Fired for Accusing Her Agency of Being Too Pro-LGBTQ

Merritt Corrigan, the deputy White House liaison at the US Agency for International Development, or USAID, has been fired for tweeting attacks against the agency for being too "pro-LGBTQ." Corrigan had a history of homophobic tweets and remarks before being appointed by Trump... so it seems the administration was comfortable with her views until she started attacking USAID. Now, she is claiming "religious persecution" for her firing.
