Trump’s Butler, Anthony Senecal, Calls for Obama to Be Killed, Secret Service Is Investigating
Anthony Senecal, the butler of presidential candidate Donald Trump posted several tirades on Facebook on May 11, calling for President Barack Obama to be killed.
Senecal, 84, worked for Trump for 17 years before being named the in-house historian of the candidate’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach. He has repeatedly posted against Obama, reported Mother Jones.
The posts are only able to be seen by his Facebook friends.
“This character who I refer to as zero (0) should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent in his first term !!!!!” said Senecal of the president.
“Instead he still remains in office doing every thing he can to gut the America we all know and love !!!!! Now comes Donald J Trump to put an end to the corruption in government !!!!” added the butler.
Senecal then went on to attack Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in his post.
“I cannot believe that a common murder is even allowed to run (killery clinton) OR that a commie like bernie is a also allowed to also run !!!!” said Senecal.
He then urged Americans to vote for his boss.
“Come on America put your big boy pants on—this election you have a choice—GET YOUR [expletive] OUT AND VOTE !!!! Thank you !!!!” concluded the butler.
Senecal had previously posted other offensive posts against the president and constantly referred to him as “zero,” according to Mother Jones.
“Looks like that sleezey [expletive] zero (O) is trying to out maneuver Congress again, if the truth be known this [expletive] needs to be hung for treason!!!” he said on Facebook.
Senecal posted that Obama is a secret Muslim who wants to destroy the United States. The butler also expressed his hatred for Muslims, saying they were taking over the country.
He also constantly posted pictures of the confederate flag saying, “Call me biased, racist…call me anything you want—I could care less !!!!!”
Senecal also said he wanted to “carpet bomb” Ferguson, Missouri.
When asked why he had written posts calling for the president to be killed, Senecal said, “I cannot stand the [expletive].”
“I don’t believe he’s an American citizen,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Trump camp tried to distance itself from Senecal’s comments.
“Tony Senecal has not worked at Mar-a-Lago for years, but nevertheless we totally and completely disavow the horrible statements made by him regarding the President,” a Trump campaign spokesman said in a statement, according to ABC News.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Secret Service said it is investigating the butler—threatening to kill a president is a federal crime.
“The U.S. Secret Service is aware of this matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation,” wrote spokesman Robert Hoback in an email to the Daily Beast.
