Donald Trump’s friend and “irreplaceable” former butler Anthony Senecal spoke to NBC News on Thursday, apparently hoping to clarify he’s even more of a paranoid bigot than his unhinged Facebook rants make him seem.
According to a recent Facebook post by Anthony Senecal, close friend and butler of Donald Trump.
In a segment that aired on “All in With Chris Hayes,” Senecal repeated his belief that President Obama should be hanged “from the white mosque,” this time adding that it should be televised and Hillary Clinton should be hanged as well.
Even more disturbingly, Senecal called for the cities of Milwaukee and Detroit to be designated “nuclear bomb sites” because they have become “totally disgraced by Muslims.”
“We need to bomb them out,” said Senecal. “I could care less they’re in the U.S. I don’t want them in the U.S. They don’t belong here. They belong in the sand dunes they came from.”
Earlier that day, the Trump campaign denounced the remarks of Senecal, who worked as Trump’s butler for 17 years before becoming the “the unofficial historian” at his Palm Beach estate.
“Tony Senecal has not worked at Mar-a-Lago for years, but nevertheless we totally and completely disavow the horrible statements made by him about the president,” said a Trump spokesperson.
In March, Senecal told The New York Times that he tried to retire from his position in 2009, but Trump told him, “Tony, to retire is to expire” and “I’ll see you next season.”
