Donald Trump is the GOP nominee for president and it looks like he is going to either beat Hillary or give her a much closer race than many expected.
Over the next few months, the media is going to hammer Donald Trump in any way they can and they are going to relentlessly search through his past to find something to attack him with.
That appears to be what happened today as we start to see reports about a reprehensible comment that his former butler/driver of 17 years made about President Obama on Facebook.
From Raw Story:
One of the Facebook posts reads: “To all my friends on FB, just a short note to you on our pus headed “president” !!!! This character who I refer to as zero (0) should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent in his first term !!!!! Instead he still remains in office doing every thing he can to gut the America we all know and love !!!!! Now comes Donald J Trump to put an end to the corruption in government !!!! The so called elite, who are nothing but common dog turds from your front lawn are shaking in their boots because there is a new Sheriff coming to town, and the end to their corruption of the American people (YOU) is at hand !!!! I cannot believe that a common murder is even allowed to run (killery clinton) OR that a commie like bernie is a also allowed to also run !!!! Come on America put your big boy pants on—this election you have a choice—GET YOUR ASS OUT AND VOTE !!!! Thank you !!!!”
While this is an awful comment, it really doesn’t say too much about Trump.
Sure, he employed someone with radical political beliefs but it is a little much to expect Trump to monitor the Facebook posts of everyone in his company. There are some nuts out there and it isn’t always easy to spot them.
It is usually a good rule to never take something that is said on Facebook too seriously.
Regardless, this comment was absolutely disgusting and Trump should distance himself immediately and I imagine he will.
When Trump says something ridiculous, and he does often, he should be taken to task for it. When his butler says something ridiculous, let’s try to keep things in perspective.
