One of Trump’s “Deplorables” hopped out of his basket on Tuesday to tell us how he really feels about Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — specifically that they both need to be hanged and/or shot. Whatever, as long as they’re dead, right? On Twitter, a man identifying himself as John George tweeted that he wants to “bust” Obama’s “muslim mouth big time.”
Mr. George was clear that this was “not a threat,” though it sounds threatening, but let’s give him a free pass on that one. After all, it’s in the rulebook that every Republican can threaten a black man and call him a n*gger once without any repercussions, right? Now let’s look at Mr. George’s Facebook profile. While we’re pretending that his tweet was not in any way a racist threat, his Facebook is filled — mixed among the flood of pro-Trump posts — with threats and other horrible statements about Clinton and Obama.
“I want to see hillary and obama hanging from a noose! biden, kerry and the doj r to dam stupid to hang so just shoot them!” he writes in one unhinged post.
In another, he says that if he had the chance he would beat Hillary Clinton “like a man” before she is “hanged for murder and treason.”
In another, he clearly states that “she needs to be shot.”
Just so you completely understand what sort of person we’re dealing with here, this is a random sampling of his recent posts:
George describes himself as a “business owner” on Twitter. A Google search for his name pulls up Midland Auto Repair in Columbus, Ohio. A post by his wife in July advertises that they need an “experience mechanic” who is encouraged to call the business “imediatly.”
It is unclear if Mr. George employs any African-Americans who would not appreciate his use of the word “n*gger,” but one thing is for certain — he will be voting in November.
