The message was posted by Pamela Ramsey Taylor, who ran a not for profit group in Clay County. She wrote: “It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified first lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels.”

Despite that Taylor was sacked from the Clay County Development Corporation in November following the post, she was reinstated back in December, according to a letter from the woman who took over her role, Leslie McGlothlin. But West Virginia has reviewed the contracts and Ms Taylor leaves again, this time with no chance to return.

West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s office said and agreement had been met with the organisation including adherence to nondiscrimination policies. “Following the state’s request for specific assurances that the CCDC is following anti-discrimination policies, we have been assured that Pamela Taylor has been removed from her position as CCDC director,” Tomblin’s office said in a statement. Responding to the original post, the mayor of Clay, Beverly Whaling wrote: “Hust made my day Pam”.
