Trump Praised His Former Butler's Initiative to Require Begging Permits in the Town He Became Mayor of
In 1990, Donald Trump’s longtime butler, Anthony Senecal, took a sojourn from his mansion duties to become the mayor of a town in West Virginia. As The New York Times reports, during Senecal’s brief time in office he had at least one proposal Trump could really get behind: the required issuance of begging permits.
“This is so great, Tony,” said Trump, in a written response to Senecal’s proto-fascist proposal.
Among other illuminating details revealed by Senecal in the profile, we discover how Trump takes his steak. “It would rock on the plate, it was so well done,” said Senecal of his master’s preference, which goes a long way to explaining how Trump thought selling steaks at Sharper Image was a good idea.
We also discovered a simple visual cue for assessing Trump’s temperament. On days Trump would emerge sporting a white cap, the staff were assured of his mood. If the cap was red however, “it was best to stay away,” the Times reported.
One shudders to think how Trump might extend that courtesy to the country if he was elected?
