Really? I thought that would probably get him a raise.

A speechwriter for President Donald Trump who attended a conference frequented by white nationalists has left the White House.

CNN’s KFile reached out to the White House last week about Darren Beattie, a policy aide and speechwriter, who was listed as speaking at the 2016 H.L. Mencken Club Conference.

The Mencken Club, which is named for the early 20th century journalist and satirist whose posthumously published diaries revealed racist views, is a small annual conference started in 2008 and regularly attended by well-known white nationalists such as Richard Spencer. The schedule for the 2016 conference listed panels and speeches by white nationalist Peter Brimelow and two writers, John Derbyshire and Robert Weissberg, who were both fired in 2012 from the conservative magazine National Review for espousing racist views.

Other speakers from the 2016 conference are regular contributors to the white nationalist website VDare. Jared Taylor, another leading white nationalist, can be heard at the conference in 2016 on Derbyshire’s radio show along with Brimelow.

The White House, which asked CNN to hold off on the story for several days last week declined to say when Beattie left the White House. Beattie’s email address at the White House, which worked until late Friday evening, was no longer active by Saturday.

“Mr. Beattie no longer works at the White House,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told CNN on Friday night. “We don’t comment on personnel matters.”

CNN did not characterize Beattie’s leaving as being fired, but the Washington Post and others did. 

I will have to assume that he was fired to save face after it became clear that CNN and others had the story and not because of his racist views which as we know are shared by Donald Trump, other folks in the White House, and his most loyal supporters. 

The Trump White House, where it is perfectly okay to be a racist asshole, just so long as you are discreet about it.

    How can anyone even pretend that Stephen Miller is “discreet” about his racism?

      Yes, why is the architect of “kidnapping kids and locking them in cages” still in the WH when he should be in The Hague standing trial for crimes against humanity.

      This guy was “fired” because he got caught by the media, otherwise he would still be writing hate speeches for dumb donald.

    ‘Sen. Pete Kelly denies climate change while seeking university vote’
    “In a forum sponsored by the League of WOMEN Voters Friday, Kelly said “I’m not so sure that the climate change science is valid.”
    This remark produced laughter and groans from the audience, but Kelly motioned with his left hand as if he was eager for a fight and upped his rhetoric.
    “There is HYSTERIA about it, but the science is bad.” “Kelly’s position is “ill-informed,” “Kelly, a career government worker who has a business degree from Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University”
    “the university administration and climate scientists have a responsibility to speak up and hold him accountable.” FUCKUpeteKkkelly

    O/T but Barstool on her instagram saying she is taking the high road and she has tribulations from Duh that take her to her knees lol. And she is not denying people who comment that Duh has addiction issues.
    He needs to say he caught her fucking someone else and not let her look like the poor skinny beautiful mother wife with an addict for a husband.

    No. He got fired because the media exposed the public to the fact Trump has a Nazi speechwriter. They knew. But now that *we* know, he has to go. No worries. They’ll just replace him with another Nazi.
