Drama never stops and WaPo is always there.
This was no way to celeberate Trump win by this non-profit executive:

She lost her job after calling Michelle Obama an ‘Ape in heels.’ Now she’s returning to work.

Pamela Taylor, whose racist comments about Michelle Obama propelled a small West Virginia town into an unflattering national spotlight and prompted the mayor to resign, will return to her job as head of a government-funded nonprofit group later this month.
Taylor was removed from her position as executive director of the Clay County Development Corp. after she used a derogatory term in a Facebook post about the coming shift from Obama to Melania Trump. “It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House,” she wrote last month, adding: “I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels.”
After images of the post went viral last month, a Clay County Development Corp. representative told The Washington Post that the nonprofit organization’s board had removed Taylor from her position. The uproar also prompted Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling, who commented approvingly on Taylor’s post, to resign.
Now, according to a letter from the Clay County Development Corp.’s acting executive director, Taylor is scheduled to return to her old role Dec. 23, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported (http://www.wvgazettemail.com/news/20161210/clay-nonprofit-official-who-posted-racist-comment-to-return-to-work). A call to the nonprofit group was not returned Tuesday morning.
