It's happened again. For the second time in as many weeks,  another staffer for GOP presidential contender Donald Trump has been called out sharing racist jokes on social media. Earlier this week, Trump was forced to can a senior adviser after old Facebook posts he made racially mocking President Obama and Al Sharpton's daughter surfaced.

This time it's The Daily Beast who scoped out the Facebook page of another top Trump advisor -- the senior political adviser for Trump’s presidential exploratory committee in Iowa, Brad Nagel.

Many of Nagel's most offensive posts were made ahead of the 2012 election, like this image predicting "national riots" in the event of a Mitt Romney win. Notice who the image labels as "racist":

Here is your obligatory comparison of President Obama to the Nazis:

There is also the one about Obama being a secret Muslim:

And this comparison of Obama to a trio of animals:

Then there is this cartoon which appears to be lamenting a lack of racial profiling at airport security lines:

And this image perfectly illustrating why Nagel was tapped for the ever-eloquent Trump's campaign:

And another image lecturing young black men to pull up their paints:

Nagel did share, however, a rather honest reflection of himself in the midst of making all of those racist jokes on Facebook:
