A new review from CNN’s KFile finds that top spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services Michael Caputo repeatedly directed crude and sexist comments toward women in now-deleted tweets.
CNN’s KFile reviewed several thousand deleted tweets from Caputo in 2019 and 2020, which were available on the Internet Archive’s “The Wayback Machine.”
The review also turned up additional offensive tweets from Caputo aimed at prominent public figures. Called several women on Twitter “dogface” telling them “look at this dogface,” “you have a dogface,” and “I would never sleep with you, dog-face.” In another tweet Caputo told a woman to “go f**k yourself,” saying she was “ugly,” and calling her “honey.”
Made crude insinuations and sexist comments aimed at former FBI attorney Lisa Page, including calling her a “jezebel,” and a “notorious homewrecker” and tweeted a picture of Page writing, “sedition is nearly as fun as someone else’s husband.” Caputo said he believed “woke women of the #Resistance” supported Page “until it’s time to introduce her to their husbands.” Called Alexandra Chalupa, a Democratic consultant, a crone and a “nutty hag.”
In October 2019, Caputo sent a string of tweets attacking then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the height of the impeachment inquiry into Trump, calling him a “piece of shit, “a “traitor, “a “scumbag“, and a “seditionist.”
