The Secret Service is investigating Donald Trump‘s former longtime butler after Mother Jones reported that he wrote a series of threatening Facebook posts about President Barack Obama.
Trump disavowedAnthony Senecal after news broke about the posts, including one that argued Obama should’ve been “shot as an enemy agent in his first term,” reports MSNBC.
The Secret Service released a statement Thursday saying they were “aware of this matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation,” writes the news outlet:
[I]n a phone interview with NBC News, Senecal stood by his remarks in the Facebook post and went even further, saying the president’s children were “rent-a-kids” because he felt they didn’t look sufficiently like their parents, and that Muslims should be shot or bombed in the U.S.
“There’s more than some issues with [President Obama] — he’s a goddamn traitor, T-R-A-I-T-O-R,” Senecal said. “I think he should be hung. I think he should be hung next to Hillary Clinton, and I think it should be public, I think it should be televised.”
He added: “I think it ought to be done from the portico of the White Mosque – it used to be the White House.”
Although Trump disavowed Senecal, it’s interesting that he continues to be surrounded by racist supporters. As the adage goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. What do you think? Sound off in the comments.
