Carl Higbie - who? - resignation a golden egg for anti-Trumpers

The 34-year-old former Navy SEAL is also a failed Congressional candidate, running unsuccessfully in CT four years ago.

Last year, he was awarded for his work with an appointment to lead communications for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), which manages federal volunteer programs such as AmeriCorps.

CNN released audio copies of the comments Higbie made on talk radio that included smears against Muslims, undocumented immigrants, LGBT people, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi among many others. Higbie said that black women think "breeding is a form of government employment", and that blacks were "lax of morality", and that culture "is breeding this welfare and the high percentage of people on welfare in the black race".

"Well people are like, 'well, you can't hate somebody just for being Muslim.' It's like, yeah, I can", Higbie said.

"Of the 25 or so white people that came by, not a single one asked me to help load the firewood in their auto, to do anything for them, to split it for them, or anything", Higbie said. I don't like them. "Big difference", he said.

Critics also took exception to comments Higbie made that were seen as racist, including an anecdote based on an experience in which he put out an advertisement offering free firewood. "I just don't like Muslim people", Higbie said proudly in 2013.

While Bhansali's film could make Rs35-40 crore on its opening day as a solo release, Padman could easily earn Rs25 crore. The apex court lifted a ban, imposed by six BJP-ruled states, on the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial film.

Higbie became a conservative ally during President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and made several cable news appearances, according to CNN.

Outrageous as it may sound; Higbie reportedly said that cases where PTSD-afflicted service members "were legitimately blown up", were "completely understandable". "I don't care what you think".

At another point, Higbie stated, "The whole African-American thing gets me whipped up because it's like 99 percent - and I'm paraphrasing here - of people who write down African-American have never been to Africa". You cross my border, I will shoot you in the face. "I'll volunteer to go down there and stand on that border for, I don't know, a week or so at a time and that'll be my civil duty".

Higbie also expressed a strong will to smack together the heads of California Democrat Sen. That was just fantastic. "Congratuf'in'lations, you suck, Rhode Island. I just don't", he said.

'I talk about this in my book, you know, I was, I was molested by a gay guy when I was a young kid and that kind of set the precedence for me, ' he said.

White House correspondents were not available for a comment on his resignation.
