The former butler and close friend of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump took to his Facebook account to lambast the U.S. President Barack Obama. The threats made in his post have resulted to the Secret Service to investigate him and the matter.
In a report by Gawker, the remarks were made by Anthony Peter Senecal. He started his post by saying that Obama is "pus headed" and that he should have been taken out by the U.S. military and shot as an enemy agent during his first term as the president of the nation. Senecal continued to say that Obama is still in office to do "everything he can to gut the America we all know and love."
The former butler of Trump then expressed his support for the GOP nominee saying that the real estate mogul will be coming to put an end to the corruption in the government. He continued to root for Trump then stated his dismay over the fact that a killer, referring to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is allowed to run. He also wrote about Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders being allowed to run but did not say what his reasons were over his dismay.
Senecal ended his post urging his friends on Facebook to make a move this upcoming November elections. It is presumed that Clinton will be facing against Trump for the Democratic Party.
This is not the first time that Senecal posted threats against Obama. In the same months of last year, he wrote on Facebook that Obama should be dragged from the "white mosque and hanged from the portico," The New York Times reported.
Independent reported that the U.S. Secret Service is aware of the matter and Robert Hoback, an agency spokesman, said that they will conduct the appropriate investigation. Hope Hicks, a Trump campaign spokeswoman, said in an email regarding Senecal that they "totally and completely disavow the horrible statements made by him."
Senecal worked a butler for Trump for 17 years until 2009. He currently works as the in-house historian at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
