A Trump appointee resigns over racist, sexist, anti-Muslim and anti-LGBT comments on the radio

By Andrew Kaczynski, CNN

Updated 9:38 AM ET, Fri January 19, 2018

(CNN)WARNING: This story contains graphic language.

Trump administration appointee Carl Higbie resigned Thursday as chief of external affairs for the federal government's volunteer service organization after a CNN KFile review of racist, sexist, anti-Muslim and anti-LGBT comments he made on the radio.

"Effective immediately, Carl Higbie has resigned as Chief of External Affairs at CNCS," Samantha Jo Warfield, a spokesperson for CNCS, said in a statement.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Higbie's resignation. Higbie did not respond to multiple requests for comment on Thursday.

In a tweet Friday morning, Higbie apologized for his comments.

"I'm sorry. I'm not sorry that my words were published, I am sorry that I said them in 2013," he wrote. "Those words do not reflect who I am or what I stand for, I regret saying them. Last night I informed the WH that I was resigning so as not to distract from POTUS' many success. #noexcuses"
Higbie, a former Navy SEAL and conservative media personality, was a surrogate for Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, appearing on cable news and serving as the spokesman for the Trump-aligned Great America PAC. He was appointed to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) in 2017 to direct the public image and messaging of the federal department that manages millions of Americans in volunteer services like AmeriCorps and Senior Corps.

CNCS, formed in 1993, connects volunteers with service opportunities, often in the neediest areas across the country. According to the organization's website, the projects are mainly focused on six priority areas: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.

In one of the comments unearthed by KFile, Higbie said you could "guess the color" of a family he described that lived in his condo association.

"I told this story the other day on my show. Somebody who lives in my condo association that has five kids, and it's her and her husband with the five kids and the mother, the grandmother of the kids, and they don't have jobs, they're there all the time -- I bet you can guess what color they are -- and they have no job," he said.

Oh my . So what was the color of the family ?
SMH
Oh he never said . Oh well.
What would you put the odds at of him talking about a white family?
Don’t know him at all so I can’t quantify it.
Typical non-answer.
I would say it was likely, but like I said without more information I can’t set the line. Sorry if this bothers you.

You asked for odds which is very specific. I can’t read his mind nor am I familiar with him he could have been engaging in parody . So all I can say is that imo it is more likely he meant non whites than whites . As far as which exact group, it’s either heads or tails and you have to say . Call it.
