Michael Selyem, a Deputy District Attorney in California, is facing calls for his resignation after a series of offensive social media posts about immigrants, Michelle Obama, and Maxine Waters. San Bernardino County Sun:
Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem, who joined the D.A.’s Office 12 years ago, targeted outspoken U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, former first lady Michelle Obama, Mexican immigrants and the victim of a police shooting in Facebook and Instagram posts labeled by one critic as “hateful rhetoric.”
It is almost unbelievable what he said about Maxine Waters, in a public forum no less:
Being a loud-mouthed c#nt in the ghetto you would think someone would have shot this bitch by now …
This guy is a lawyer and a public servant. Can you be this stupid and have a law degree at the same time?
On Michelle Obama, Selyem is nearly as bad. The Sun reports that Selyem posted a photoshopped picture of Michelle Obama holding a sign saying, “Trump grabbed my penis.”
And in case we don’t know exactly where he stands on race and women, here is what he had to say about immigrants:
I am all for white males immigrating here legally and starting a business. It is the terrorist a–holes sneaking in here wanting to kill me an (sic) my family that I am opposed to.
Selyem has deleted both his Facebook and Instagram accounts.
I bet you all know where this is headed. Wait for it. Yes, Selyem is a Trump supporter:
Selyem apparently is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump. Beneath a Facebook post offering free tickets to Trump’s presidential inauguration, Selyem wrote, “I love that all of you liberal f—–g p—–s are so filled with hate. Gonna be a long 8 years for you scumbags. choo choo trump”
Why are we not surprised? How can a person who holds views like this be allowed to work in our justice system? How can anyone but a white male expect to get any justice in court proceedings involving Michael Selyem? The obvious answer to both is they can’t. And because of that, Selyem should be fired.
