Donald Trump's longtime butler Anthony Senecal is an ardent backer of his former boss's presidential bid. And as David Corn of Mother Jones first reported, Senecal's Facebook page is full of the kind of violent, bigoted rhetoric associated with the worst kind of Trump supporter.
Senecal served as Trump's butler for 17 years before resigning in 2009, and now holds the lofty title of in-house historian at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate. Senecal's profile Senecal's Facebook posts are only visible to friends, but Mother Jones collected some choice excerpts from his oeuvre:
- On Obama: "This prick needs to be hung for treason!!!"
- "[W]ith the last breath I draw I will help rid this America of the scum infested in its government--and if that means dragging that ball less dick head from the white mosque and hanging his scrawny ass from the portico--count me in !!!!!"
- "Our current 'president' is a rotten filthy muzzie !!!!! Period !!!!!! He continues his war on Christians !!!!!!"
- Obama "should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent in his first term !!!!!"
- "there are to [sic] many fkn muzzies in America !!!!!"
- "Stop the LYING BITCH OF BENGHAZI, NOW---killery clinton !!!!!! She should be in prison awaiting hanging !!!!!!!"
It's not all doom and gloom, though. Senecal is confident that his former boss will clean up the mess in Washington: "Now comes Donald J Trump to put an end to the corruption in government !!!! The so called elite, who are nothing but common dog turds from your front lawn are shaking in their boots because there is a new Sheriff coming to town, and the end to their corruption of the American people (YOU) is at hand !!!!"
Aside from his fondness of exclamation points, Senecal's posts reveal that he is a birther and thinks the "kenyan [sic] fraud" Obama "is leading the Muslim Brotherhood."
Like many Trump supporters, Senecal's frustration doesn't end with the Democratic Party—he's just as fed up with mainstream Republicans, calling John Boehner and Mitch McConnell "FKN CROOKS and should be run out of D.C, on a rail and covered in hot tar."
In another post, he called for Americans to "revolt and hang all of the a-holes in Congress and the crooked government !!!!! Let's get 'er done !!!!!!" (If nothing else, Senecal deserves some credit for bringing more Larry the Cable Guy into our political discourse, which we can all agree is sorely needed.)
Senecal is unapologetic about the anti-Obama vitriol. "I cannot stand the bastard," he told Corn. "I don't believe he's an American citizen. I think he's a fraudulent piece of crap that was brought in by the Democrats."
UPDATE: The Daily Beast's Asawin Suebsaeng reports that the Secret Service will open an investigation into Senecal's statements. The Secret Service routinely investigates individuals that make online threats against the president.
