NEW YORK (AP) — Workplace experts are saying that if President Donald Trump were anyone else, he’d be fired, or at least reprimanded, for his latest tweets attacking a female TV host.
And, experts say, if he were to look for a job, these and past crude tweets would raise red flags for companies doing social media background checks. Such checks are an increasingly common practice as tweets and Facebook posts become a daily, sometimes hourly part of our lives.
Of course, Trump is anything but typical. Still, experts say it’s a mistake to think that because the president is getting away with sending out crude tweets that a regular person would. There are plenty of examples online of people getting fired for such conduct.
