Jeeves would be appalled by the lack of discretion.
Thursday was a pretty good day for Donald Trump—he swept into Washington for his meetings with Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders, and left town with a conciliatory statement from Ryan, a downright cordial one from Senator Lindsey Graham (who once compared nominating him to being shot), and warm statements from others.
Yet some of the attention for those meetings is being stolen by a series of appallingly racist comments made on Facebook by Trump’s longtime butler at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Anthony Senecal. Here’s a sample, caught by Mother Jones (and apparently since deleted):
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 !!!!
In addition to calling for the military to stage a coup and execute Obama, he also called for lynching the president:
I feel it is time for the SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION !!!!! The only way we will change this crooked government is to douche it !!!!! This might be the time with this kenyan fraud in power !!!!! ...[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 !!!!!
David Corn has some more examples. Even if the posts have been deleted, Senecal didn’t deny them. In fact, he expanded on them to NBC’s Alex Jaffe:
In intvu w @ajjaffe, Trump's butler calls for Obama to be "hung from the portico of the White Mosque," calls Obama daughters "rent-a-kids"— Beth Fouhy (@bfouhy) May 12, 2016
(What does “rent-a-kids” even mean?)
