Huffington Post senior reporter Ashley Feinberg called former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus a “cuck” on Twitter Wednesday.
Feinberg included the insult when she retweeted Priebus’ praise for President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech.
“I was mocking conservatives who used to do the same thing,” Feinberg told The Daily Caller News Foundation through Twitter. “Or rather, I was mocking conservatives who used cuck as a derogatory term for what they viewed as other conservatives acting weak.”
“The extent to which Priebus has debased himself for a man who clearly takes pleasure in humiliating him probably requires quite a bit of fortitude, actually,” she continued.
Feinberg also didn’t try to position herself as objective – a traditional staple of journalism.
“And when have I ever claimed to be objective?” Feinberg said.
“Looking forward to this investigative report,” she told TheDCNF’s investigative reporter interviewing her.
