UPDATE: North Dakota (WDAY News) – The public information officer who mistakenly “tweeted” derogatory

comments during the presidential debate, has resigned.

Coleene Reinke’s “Tweets” made jabs about facial expressions, Donald Trump’s hair, and another told debate moderator Lester Holt to quote “grow a pair.”

She says she grabbed the wrong phone, and thought she was tweeting on her personal account.

She “tweeted” her resignation a short time later.

The health department says they’ll meet on the issue, and comment, on twitter, in the next 24-hours.
