Yesterday evening, Anthony Senecal, Donald Trump’s longtime butler, went on a racist rant on Facebook, encouraging people to go out and vote because America had been taken over by “our pus headed ‘president'” and needed a leadership change.

Both Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, and his son, Eric, are Facebook friends with Senecal.

Senecal was famously profiled by The New York Times in March, where he was presented as a loyal servant who only slightly dabbled in the bigotry that has fueled Trump’s presidential campaign. “Mr. Senecal, with horn-rimmed glasses, a walrus mustache and a white pocket kerchief in his black jacket, seems to reflect his boss’s worldview: He worries about attacks by Islamic terrorists and is critical of Mr. Trump’s ex-wives,” wrote Jason Horowitz.

What the Times profile didn’t reveal is that Senecal has a prolific Facebook presence, which he uses to attack anything and everything related to the Obama administration, frequently dipping into wild conspiracy theories. In several posts, he calls President Obama “the asswipe I call zero” and a “Muzzie,” a derogatory term for Muslim. But this post takes the cake:

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 !!!! The so called elite, who are nothing but common dog turds from your front lawn are shaking in their boots because there is a new Sheriff coming to town, and the end to their corruption of the American people (YOU) is at hand !!!! I cannot believe that a common murder is even allowed to run (killery clinton) OR that a commie like bernie is a also allowed to also run !!!! Come on America put your big boy pants on—this election you have a choice—GET YOUR ASS OUT AND VOTE !!!! Thank you !!!!

He has quite the following, too. Beneath each of his posts, commenters called for the president to be hung, executed, or deported “back to where they came from.” Senecal is also Facebook friends with Roger Stone, Don Imus, and right-wing journalist Ronald Kessler.

It’s not just the House Select Committee on January 6 that wants a better look at many of those involved in Donald Trump’s scheme to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Thanks to their wide-ranging activities in many states, investigations are going on at the local, state, and federal level into actions that Trump’s team took in attempting to reverse the will of the American people.

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
