Couple fired over anti-Trump picture book

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

A husband and wife were fired from their jobs just one day after starting a Kickstarter campaign for their satirical picture book "D is for Dump Trump."

Brad and Amy Herzog's book contains 26 poems about GOP nominee Donald Trump in alphabetical order, detailing the "dangers of a demagogue running for president."

The couple were working as traveling spokespeople for the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association. The RV industry is notoriously conservative, so the book didn't sit particularly well with some consumers.

Brad and Amy lost their jobs after an RV Daily Report editor wrote an opinion piece calling for the company to cut ties with the couple.

"For an organization that routinely walks the tightrope of political correctness, it seems rather odd that RVIA would turn a blind eye to such a divisive book in this politically-charged environment," Greg Gerber wrote.

But the couple says they won't let that stop them from making their book. The Kickstarter has now received more than $40,000 in funding — five times their original $7,500 goal. The book will be available through Barnes & Noble beginning September 15th.
