Folks are going crazy on twitter over Donald trump's former butler calling for the killing of the president, and rightfully so. But let's be honest, isn't this just another day in wingnut America? I mean all those people do is daydream about killing the president and doing unspeakable things to his family. (*Their words, not mine.) Just check out the comments section in one of those FOX News websites and you will get an idea of what I am talking about. Heck, check out some of the comments from some of the resident loons right here on this site.
"Anthony Senecal, who worked as a butler to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee for 17 years, until 2009, wrote in a recent Facebook post that Obama should be shot by the military as an “enemy agent.”
"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 !!!!!" Senecal said in a Facebook post, according to Mother Jones.
"Instead he still remains in office doing every thing he can to gut the America we all know and love !!!!!"
Wow! Birds of a feather do flock together.
And to think, he posted this on facebook no less. No wonder facebook is trying to limit conservative thought. There is no thought. All they want to do is kill folks.
So that's all bad, but it's to be expected. I think folks are missing the real irony in this story: Donald trump, a real man of the working class, and poor working class whites everywhere; has a freaking "butler". A butler! Look, I am sure the guy has enough loot to afford one. (At least I think he does. Let's see the taxes , Donald.) And I am quite sure that his homes are large enough. But the thought of a butler running behind this newly crowned man of the people is hilarious.
I looked up the definition of butler in Wiki, and this is what I came up with:
"A butler is a domestic worker in a large household. In great houses, the household is sometimes divided into departments with the butler in charge of the dining room, wine cellar, and pantry. Some also have charge of the entire parlour floor, and housekeepers caring for the entire house and its appearance. A butler is usually male, and in charge of male servants, while a housekeeper is usually a woman, and in charge of female servants. Traditionally, male servants (such as footmen) were rarer and therefore better paid and of higher status than female servants. The butler, as the senior male servant, has the highest servant status. He can also be sometimes used as a chauffeur.
In older houses where the butler is the most senior worker, titles such as majordomo, butler administrator, house manager, manservant, staff manager, chief of staff, staff captain, estate manager and head of household staff are sometimes given. The precise duties of the employee will vary to some extent in line with the title given, but perhaps, more importantly in line with the requirements of the individual employer. In the grandest homes or when the employer owns more than one residence, there is sometimes an estate manager of higher rank than the butler.
The guy blames Obama for all his troubles. Maybe he wanted trump to promote him to "estate manager" and he couldn't cut it. Although I am sure that it takes a special kind of butler to service Donald and the family. Heck just bringing up Donald's hair products every morning must be exhausting. Not to mention having to constantly clean all the mirrors in the house.
