A member of President Donald Trump’s exclusive Mar-a-Lago club posted a photo of himself with the military aide who carries the nuclear codes for the president.

Richard DeAgazio, who was at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday night when Trump hosted a dinner for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, posted photos on his Facebook with a man identified as “Rick,” who carries the President's Emergency Satchel, which has launch codes for nuclear missiles.

“It is held by an aide-de-camp,” DeAgazio wrote in his post, “and Rick is the Man.”

DeAgazio was ripped in the comments section for being irresponsible, with one person saying, “Thanks for getting Rick demoted and/or relieved of duty.”

 

In another post, DeAgazio posted pictures of Trump and Abe after North Korea launched a missile.

 

“HOLY MOLY !!! It was fascinating to watch the flurry of activity at dinner when the news came that North Korea had launched a missile in the direction of Japan,” his post read. “Wow.....the center of the action!!!”
