“[A]re your daughters ugly like you? Or can Trump use them at the Epstein parties so they can survive when you’re broke, bitter, along and in prison for treason?” Ms. Jacobus wrote in a Thursday morning tweet to Mr. Caputo, which remained active on her account as of Friday morning.
Epstein is a reference to Jeffrey Epstein, a 65-year-old billionaire financier who was accused of sexually abusing more than 40 minor girls and convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution. Mr. Epstein was said to have partied with many big-name celebrities, including Donald Trump, who called him a “terrific guy” back in 2002. Flight logs revealed that former President Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane 26 times.
Ms. Jacobus‘ attack on Mr. Caputo’s daughters stemmed from a series of back and forths, kicked off by Ms. Jacobus after she called the former Trump adviser “one of the most lacking in self-awareness pigs of our time.”
“[Y]our illegitimate daughter contemplating the pavement because her loser dad is a traitor? Keep it up #BadDad,” she wrote in a still-active tweet.
one of your daughters contemplating throwing herself on the tracks because of what you’ve done to your country and to your family?— Cheri Jacobus (@CheriJacobus) July 19, 2018
Mr. Caputo brought the tweets to USA Today’s attention.

“Our editors in the opinion section became aware of the tweet by freelance columnist Cheri Jacobus just after noon today,” a spokesperson said.
“An hour later after researching the issue, our editors let Jacobus know that she would no longer be writing for USA TODAY,” the spokesperson added. “We have asked her to remove the USA TODAY affiliation from her bio.”
Ms. Jacobus has since removed all mentions of the paper from her Twitter bio. She remained unapologetic Friday morning, telling multiple Twitter users that now was not the time for civility.

nope — I noted that he pimped his own daughters out to beg for money on his gofundme then used that money for his lawyers and to pay off JD Gordon (in part) but somehow managed to keep the vaca home. I’m told today by a reporter that Caputo bought a more expensive home recently— Cheri Jacobus (@CheriJacobus) July 20, 2018
Ask Caputo about Toy Moore. Then ask him why he drags his daughters into the public stage and uses them to help him beg for money so he can afford his vacation home. He’s whoring out his own daughters.— Cheri Jacobus (@CheriJacobus) July 19, 2018
