Anthony Senecal has been held captive by… er… working for presidential hopeful Donald Trump for nearly 30 years and tending to the 118-room mega-mansion in Palm Beach, Florida that Trump calls home for a total of 60. That means that few people on planet earth know more about the private life of Trump than 74-year-old Senecal and today’s New York Times profile on Trump’s butler (the very fact that he’s referred to as a butler seems antiquated) reveals some humdingers… but perhaps the creepiest thing is that none of these revelations are all that surprising.
At any rate, here are the six most nauseating things we learned from Senecal’s (undoubtedly highly censored) tell-all profile:
He calls Trump “The King.”
“You can always tell when the king is here,” says Senecal. Is there a chill in the air? Do birds fling themselves into the windows in alarming numbers? Are their dark clouds and lightning storms? Who knows.
Trump likes his steak done very, very, very, well.
“It would rock on the plate, it was so well done.” Ew.
Trump does his own hair, despite having a hair salon onsite.
When Trump is moody, a simple kazoo serenade will cheer him up.
But only if the kazoo is playing “Hail to the Chief.” No, seriously.
Trump’s baseball cap indicates what kind of a mood he’s in.
White = good, red = bad.
He will sometimes ask guests to rise when Trump enters a room.
Only time will tell if we, too, will have to call Trump “The King” if he gets elected.
