Did Former Trump Butler Anthony Senecal Post Death Threats Toward President Obama?

Former Donald Trump manservant Anthony Senecal is reportedly unrepentant about comments and threats he made toward President Obama and his family after a lengthy questioning session with the Secret Service. Senecal, who was Trump’s longtime butler and then served as in-house historian at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate is sticking by his thoughts about President Obama and has no interest in denying his opinions or apologizing for them.

But according to the Inquisitr, Senecal might just share his volatility and impulsive behavior with his employer Trump, because in the past year Donald Trump has mixed it up with those on both sides of the political fence. Last summer, after a disagreement with fellow Republican Lindsey Graham, Trump published Graham’s cell phone number and suggested that people call him. Graham took it in stride, but it was just an early example of Trump’s less than professional behavior.

So it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that Donald Trump surrounds himself with people like Anthony Senecal who seems to have issues of a racial, cultural and political nature with those who don’t agree with him, according to Vanity Fair. The Secret Service recently sat down with Senecal and spoke with him about death threats made against Barack Obama.

“I think they wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to go in there with a rifle. I told them it was too far to drive. I lived in Washington and hated it. I’m glad I got the hell out of there.”

Senecal has also suggested that President Obama needs to be hung for treason and has posted a Confederate flag to his personal Facebook page. Senecal says that he wouldn’t actually kill the president himself, but that the military should have done it during his first term. Senecal, who was once the mayor of Martinsburg, West Virginia, was previously spoken of fondly by Donald Trump. Since this latest incident, though, Donald Trump has put out a statement distancing himself from Senecal and his statements.

“His statements regarding President Obama and his family are totally disavowed by Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization. They are disgusting. Mr. Senecal is obviously a very troubled man.”

According to Mother Jones, Anthony Senecal worked as Donald Trump’s butler for 17 years before being promoted to in-house historian at Mar-a-Lago. Senecal has been using Facebook as a forum for his rantings against the president and for his support for Donald Trump.

“To all my friends on FB, just a short note to you on our pus headed ‘president’!!!! 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!!!!! 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!!!!”

Senecal confirmed to Mother Jones that this was his statement, and these are his thoughts about the current political situation in the United States. Though a representative for the Trump organization claims that Senecal hasn’t worked for him for years, it was confirmed that Senecal worked as head butler for Donald Trump for 17 years, and when Senecal wanted to retire, Trump persuaded him to stay on at Mar-a-Lago.

Senecal, now 84, seems particularly convinced that Barack Obama is a “secret Muslim” bent on destroying the United States.

“Our current ‘president’ is a rotten filthy muzzie!!!!! Period!!!!!! He continues his war on Christians!!!!!!…zero is against the people of America!!!!!”

Senecal seems thoroughly committed to Trump, his former employer, and says that nobody but Trump deserves to be president of the United States.

Do you believe that Donald Trump was aware of Anthony Senecal’s threats against President Obama?
