Lib activist who bashed Carryn Owens FIRED after fed-up retired SEAL writes his employer a letter

The former Hillary Clinton volunteer who bashed a Navy SEAL widow has been given the boot by his employer.

Dan Grilo’s outrageous tweet mocking Carryn Owens, the grieving widow of fallen SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, set off scathing backlash that led to a sort of apology from Grilo before completely locking, and finally deleting his Twitter account.

Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group, Grilo’s employer, fired him stating that his tweet was “inconsistent with the Company’s values,” according to Fox News.

Apparently, retired Navy SEAL Derrick Van Orden had written a letter to the company demanding Grilo be fired.

“You do not insult our widows and expect to get away with it,” he said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday.

In his letter, Van Orden said Grilo “in the basest terms, degraded the memory of one of my fallen Navy SEAL brothers by insulting his wife on a public platform.”

He told the company Grilo had “brought shame upon himself” and on them if he remained employed with them. He later contacted the company’s CEO to thank him for dismissing Grilo.

Van Orden described the tweet by Grilo as “beyond the pale,” and “wholly inappropriate.”

He also praised President Donald Trump, responding to accusations that the president used Owens’ widow as a political “prop” during his first address to a joint session of Congress this week.

Honoring Owens that way and showing his widow as a “symbol” for Gold Star widows and widowers was “an incredibly classy thing to do,” Van Orden said,

“She is a strong woman that has displayed grace in the presence of hurt,” he added.

“Mr. President,” Van Orden said, addressing Trump directly, “you earned my respect and the respect of my fellow SEALs by doing this. And and if you need anything, you give me a ring.”
