Elizabeth Pipko, a Jewish model, is now being constantly harassed on social media after revealing her support for Trump.

A 23-year-old model was a secret Donald Trump supporter until recently.
But it didn’t take long for invective to flow her way after she revealed last month that she had worked full-time on the president’s 2016 campaign. “She’s now on the receiving end of constant insults, including being called a ‘Nazi,'” The Daily Wire reports.
Elizabeth Pipko, who is Jewish, started out as a volunteer on Trump’s campaign before being hired full-time.
“I worked in a call center in Trump Tower. Within eight weeks, I was hired as a national volunteer services coordinator for the data team and paid $4,000 a month,” she told The New York Post in January, revealing for the first time that she supported Trump.
Pipko had hid her Trump support from her colleagues for fear of putting her modeling career in jeopardy, but she didn’t want to keep it a secret any longer.
The model told the Post that her fears weren’t unfounded. She describes meeting her manager after a 10-hour-day on the Trump campaign.
“He and a colleague were enraged, screaming about how much they hate Trump. My manager kept saying how evil the people who work for him must be and that he would never work with anyone who supported him.
“I was terrified they would find out that I was one of the so-called evil people.
“So I lied and told people I was coaching ice skating — I was a competitive figure skater for seven years — whenever I was really hard at work in Trump Tower.”
“It was clear from the start that, if I wanted to survive in modeling, I couldn’t tell anyone about my new job,” she said.
“But now that it’s been two years since the election, I don’t want to keep silent any longer. Even if that means saying goodbye to modeling forever,” she told The New York Post.
In a statement to The Daily Wire, Pipko said: “Since admitting my support for the President and my work for the 2016 Trump campaign, I have been the target of some extremely inappropriate comments and insults.”
“The words that people are using to address me are words that should never be used to speak to anyone, but more importantly, words than should never be used to attack someone simply because of their political beliefs.”
Most upsetting to Pipko is being called a Nazi. “The fact that anyone would go out of their way to call me a Nazi, a word I take extremely seriously both as a Jew and as a person whose family was affected by the Holocaust, is extremely hurtful and a terrifying experience that nobody should have to experience in this country, especially for simply supporting their president,” she told The Daily Wire.
