What Did Jofi Joseph Tweet To Get Fired? [Mildly Offensive]

The firing of Jofi Joseph, a national security official, for some “secret” and off-color tweets has been a scintillating Washington scandal — and after the news broke, everyone wanted to know exactly what it was that got Joseph axed from the White House’s National Security Council.

Jofi Joseph was unmasked as “Twitter troll” @natsecwonk, and pegged in the tweeting of not only some fairly misogynistic and sexist banter, but also sharp criticism of the Obama administration.

The thing with Twitter is that nothing is ever gone forever, and old tweets die hard. Jofi Joseph’s @natsecwonk tweets are no different, and after the scandal surfaced, the inevitable list of the most offensive tweets sent by the account also circulated.

New York Magazine published a list of the more offensive tweets Jofi Joseph allegedly sent, and it seems no caucus or affiliation was immune.

The Romney clan got a mention:

“Has rich kid Tagg Romney ever even been in a fight? What a piece of shit. He needs to tell his mom to lose about 15 pounds”

As did the family of Dick Cheney:

“[Liz Cheney is] what happens when rank nepotism meets sheer stupidity. Also, she takes after her father — she’s like 30 pounds overweight.”

“I’m dying to call out Liz Cheney for the overweight fat pig that she is. But then I remember that Mike Enzi weighs even more. #fail”

But so did Chelsea Clinton:

“Who are the two blondes flanking [Chelsea Clinton]? And is it just me, or has she put on some weight?”

And Ari Fleischer’s wife:

“Vitriol against @arifleischer entirely justified. He married a woman a decade younger than him – and she’s as ugly as he is! #jackass”

Even recently deceased veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas wasn’t safe:

“Admit it, when you heard Helen Thomas went out on a date with JFK back in the day, you asked yourself, “Wait, she was attractive once?”

After Joseph’s Twitter account was rumbled, the former White House staffer apologized for the account and what it had become, saying:

“It has been a privilege to serve in this Administration and I deeply regret violating the trust and confidence placed in me. What started out as an intended parody account of DC culture developed over time into a series of inappropriate and mean-spirited comments. I bear complete responsibility for this affair and I sincerely apologize to everyone I insulted.”

Before Jofi Joseph was linked with the @natsecwonk account, the user Twitter bio professed to opine with what others thought but did not say out loud. (Or tweet.)
