A veteran prosecutor in the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office is under fire after a series of vulgar posts and comments online wondering why someone hasn’t shot Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) as well as attacks on former First Lady Michelle Obama and Mexican immigrants.

According to The Sun, Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem — a 12-year veteran of the DA’s office — is facing calls for his dismissal over the comments made on Facebook.

According to the report, the prosecutor who specializes in prosecuting gang violence, attacked the outspoken Waters online, writing: “Being a loud-mouthed c*nt in the ghetto you would think someone would have shot this b*tch by now …”

Selyem also posted a doctored picture of Michelle Obama holding up a sign saying, “Trump grabbed my penis.”

Discussing a police shooting in a comment section, the prosecutor went off, writing, “That sh*tbag got exactly what he deserved. … You reap what you sow. And by the way go f*ck yourself you liberal sh*tbag.”

The Sun reports that the DA’s office has been aware of Selyem’s online outbursts since late June and the he is currently undergoing an internal review.

In a statement Friday, outgoing District Attorney Mike Ramos said: “We have been made aware of the negative comments and they do not represent the views of the District Attorney’s Office. Since this is a personnel matter I cannot comment any further.”

According to the report, Selyem has shuttered his Facebook and Instagram accounts.

A group of West Virginia voters explained their voting choices to MSNBC on Monday.

"I don't have TV, I don't have internet," one woman said. "I'm pretty far behind. And I bet you a lot of around here are because we're poor. I don't know nothing about Joe [Biden]. I ain't never heard nothing about him at all. Donald Trump, I know a little bit about him because of the past couple of years."

"I'll probably vote for Donald Trump," Jeff Kibbey told MSNBC. "He keeps the people to the TV set."

"One, Trump is good," Francis Senter insisted. "Biden -- however you pronounce his name -- is good too. But like I say, I can't judge either one of them. It's the same community it ain't never going to change because if it was going to change it wouldn't look like this right here."

On Tuesday, BuzzFeed News reported that Patriot Front, a white supremacist group formed from the collapse of groups that participated in the Charlottesville neo-Nazi riots, is preparing for civil unrest as they believe President Donald Trump's re-election is a lost cause.

The group wants to expel immigrants, people of color, and Jews, remaking the fabric of America."
