Trump supporters were not very impressed with Roswell Cancer Center VP Laura Krolcyzk who suggested they give up their ventilators and not go to the hospital.
Krolcyzk also suggested Trump supporters “barricade themselves” in a packed church and “ride this out.”
Krolcyzyk worked for Hillary Clinton in the past.
Per TheBuffalo News
Laura Krolczyk, Roswell Park’s vice president for external affairs, was initially placed on administrative leave from her position but was fired following the conclusion of an investigation into her remarks, spokeswoman Annie Deck-Miller confirmed Saturday.
Hauptman Woodward Medical Research Institute has placed Lisa LaTrovato, its director of development, on leave for her comments in the Facebook exchange with Krolczyk, the institute told The Buffalo News.
The institutions acted after the exchange between the two drew criticism once Republican operative Michael Caputo shared it widely through his Twitter account on Friday.
Both Krolczyk and LaTrovato worked for Democratic elected officials before moving into their positions at the medical and research organizations: Krolczyk for Hillary Clinton and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and LaTrovato for Louise Slaughter.
The morbid and hateful Facebook post got Krolcyzyk fired, but not before Trump supporters sounded off on Twitter.

Per WIVB 4, a Roswell Park vice president has been terminated following an investigation into her comments about Trump supporters on Facebook.
Laura Krolczyk, VP of External Affairs for Roswell Park, was placed on administrative leave while the cancer institute’s human resources team conducted the interview.
A Roswell Park employee confirmed Saturday that she has been fired.
Roswell Park offered this statement on Saturday:
“We have always been and continue to be a center serving everyone who needs us. That is core to our mission, our culture and the experience our patients and families can expect every day.
This behavior is not tolerated at Roswell Park. If any team members act in a way that does not accord with that commitment, we will take swift and appropriate action, just as we did in this instance.”
