How to use firing in a sentence?

  1. Rick Perry:

    Donald Trump’s campaign fired a staffer Sunday for what it said were racially offensive Facebook posts. ‘Effective immediately, Sam Nunberg, a low-level political adviser, is no longer associated with the Donald Trump For president campaign,’ Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said in an interview.
