Full title: CBS fires vice president who said Vegas victims didn't deserve sympathy because country music fans 'often are Republican'

CBS has parted ways with one of the company’s top lawyers after she said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night. 

“This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families,” a CBS spokeswoman told Fox News. Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network's now-former vice president and senior counsel, took to Facebook after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and sending more than 500 others to hospitals.

“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote in a now-deleted message that was first reported and captured by The Daily Caller.

Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”

Will the firing be the first step in her future radicalization, or the slap that brings one back?

Thanks, was about to post this.

From the article:
Geftman-Gold did not work directly with the network’s news division. According to her LinkedIn bio, Geftman-Gold worked at CBS since September 2016 and graduated from the prestigious Columbia University law school in 2000.

"Prestigious" universities are no more than indoctrination centers these days.

Sadly, it may not take long for someone else to hire her.

Nope, just a new hire for Hillary’s next campaign just like Blabbermouth.

It’s a start.

This vicious left tard b*tch rails about Sandy Hook, and I guarantee she backs two hundred percent full term abortion of full term babies.

She doesn’t give a d@mn about children, especially the unborn. May she live a troubled terrible life and then roast in hell.

“Sadly, it may not take long for someone else to hire her.”

Yeah, probably Robert Mueller.

I’m sure many Democrats are wondering what her plans are for November 2020.

CNN comes to mind.

Funny how these liberals bring up dead children every time a massacre happens but never talk about the thousands of dead children massacred each day via abortion.

I don’t do Facebook but I bet her Facebook page is filling up with seething attacks, if she hasn’t already taken it down.

It takes a really evil person to make statements like that when she knew nothing about the people killed and wounded.

Thanks for posting, she got what she deserved.

“The country-music population.” Identity politics can really make people lose whatever humanity they have. If you are not part of their group, well, you deserve death.
