Could this stupid election get any stupider? With Trump now the head of the Republican Party? Well of course it could!

A Virginia blogger described Corey Stewart like this, upon hearing the news:

Couldn’t have happened to a nastier guy than Corey Stewart the immigrant-bashing, demagogic thug of Prince William County and the (former) Virginia State Director for neo-fascist Donald Trump.

Apparently Stewart was repeatedly warned what would happen if he went ahead with the protest, but didn't care. There are rumors he wants to run for Governor in 2017, and was intent on making a name for himself. He did, but at Trump's expense. Hence, he got canned.

WASHINGTON (ABC7) — Corey Stewart, the Virginia campaign chair for Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump, has been fired after organizing a protest outside of the Republican National Committee headquarters Monday.

"He is being replaced, effective immediately," Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said on the firing. "Corey made this decision when he staged a stunt in front of the RNC (without) the knowledge or approval of the Trump campaign."

The protest took place Monday after a post from Stewart on Facebook Sunday.

The Trump campaign released this statement:
