The former White House national security adviser who was recently fired for insulting administration officials from an anonymous Twitter account blasted former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her family as “white trash” and “useless garbage” that he hoped someone would be “getting rid of.”
The Daily Beast revealed the identity of @NatSecWonk on Tuesday as 40-year-old Jofi Joseph, who was a “senior director of non-proliferation policy on the National Security Staff.” Though Joseph’s Twitter account has since been deleted, mainstream media journalist Marc Ambinder curated the tweets.
On October 24, 2012, Joseph tweeted from the @NatSecWonk account that Palin and her “white trash family” were “utter useless garbage.”
@NatSecWonk 24 Oct So when will someone do us the favor of gettingrid of Sarah Palin and the rest of her white trash family? What utter useless garbage….
According to Ambinder, Joseph was also “a former Senate staffer who worked in the non-proliferation shop at the State Department when Hillary Clinton was the secretary.”
