A bit of comic relief: Don't be deceived. It's entirely possible that Candidate Trump will be elected president.
We're not saying he will be elected. But yes, of course, he could be.
In our view, our own tribe's relentless name-calling (we seem to know few other plays) tends to heighten that possibility. But let's leave that contentious point for another day.
For today, some comic relief:
For a reason that has gone unexplained, the New York Times recently scored an interview with Anthony Senecal, Trump's "longtime butler" at Mar-a-Lago, his foppish Palm Beach estate.
The New York Times never does squat without engaging in journalistic oddness. In this case, Jason Horowitz never explains the circumstances under which he interviewed Senecal, although it seems the session took place at Mar-a-Lago on March 6.
It seems the gentlemen spoke for hours. Unless Horowitz's report is an early April Fools gift, one clownish story after another emerged from Senecal's lips.
How comically awful are Senecal's tales? Try this on for size:
HOROWITZ (3/16/16): Mr. Senecal's admiration for his longtime boss seems to know few limits. On March 6, as Mr. Trump made his way through the living room on his way to the golf course, Mr. Senecal called out ''All rise!'' to the club members and staff. They rose.That's the end of Horowitz's report, which runs almost 1700 words. The significance of the hopeful's white cap had been explained a bit earlier.
Mr. Trump was wearing a ''Make America Great Again'' cap. It was white, not red. He seemed in a good mood.
(A white cap means Trump is in a good mood. "If it was red, it was best to stay away," Horowitz writes, describing a rule of thumb Mar-a-Lago's staff came up with years ago.)
Senecal knows how to fluff Trump. According to Horowitz, the event we highlight below happened years ago:
HOROWITZ: Few people here can anticipate Mr. Trump's demands and desires better than Mr. Senecal, 74, who has worked at the property for nearly 60 years, and for Mr. Trump for nearly 30 of them.That's how Trump was being fluffed before he ran for president!
Mr. Senecal knows how to stroke his ego and lift his spirits, like the time years ago he received an urgent warning from Mr. Trump's soon-to-land plane that the mogul was in a sour mood. Mr. Senecal quickly hired a bugler to play ''Hail to the Chief'' as Mr. Trump stepped out of his limousine to enter Mar-a-Lago.
In the capable hands of Senecal, the fluffing of Trump seems to take many forms. As Trump once asked, how strong is Trump?
As it turns out, this strong:
HOROWITZ: Mr. Trump is abundantly proud of his ability to drive a golf ball, once asking rhetorically during a news conference: ''Do I hit it long? Is Trump strong?''Has anyone ever told more tales out of school than Senecal now has done? We'd love to know how this improbable interview came to be, but Horowitz neglected to explain that point.
Mr. Senecal suggested that Mr. Trump was perhaps not quite as strong as he imagined, remembering times they would hit balls together from the Mar-a-Lago property into the Intracoastal Waterway.
''Tony, how far is that?'' Mr. Trump would ask.
''It's like 275 yards,'' Mr. Senecal would respond, though he said the actual distance was 225 yards.
At any rate, the tales roll on and on. Who comes off worse in this pair-of-tales—Trump himself, or his eagle-eyed dad?
HOROWITZ: Over the decades, [Senecal] has grown close to the Trump family. He recalled how Mr. Trump's father, Fred C. Trump, once stepped out of his limo on the club's gravel driveway and remarked to Mr. Senecal, ''Somebody better get that coin.'' The butler went on his hands and knees and after a few minutes found a crusty penny.The stories go on and on. We were struck by a minor irony:
''His eyes were incredible,'' Mr. Senecal said of Fred Trump. ''Mr. Trump has the same eyes.''
He also remembered Donald Trump's young sons running through the library, paneled with centuries-old British oak and filled with rare first-edition books that no one in the family ever read. When the library became a bar, Mr. Trump put a portrait of himself on a wall, posing in tennis whites.
''I've been in other homes in Palm Beach—same exact painting,'' Mr. Senecal confided archly. ''Just a different head.''
Mar-a-Lago was built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, once the richest woman in the world. Post's daughter, actress Dina Merrill, finally sold the place to Trump.
We were struck by the irony. The daughter of one "richest woman" sold this estate to Trump. The son of another, Anderson Cooper, now serves as Trump's pool boy.
Cooper, of course, is the soul of discretion concerning the boss. This voluble butler is not.
He's a great interviewer.ReplyDelete

NO idea what the point of this post was. None at all. Trump's butler's interview was light and interesting. What exactly is Somerby bitching about? I have no idea.ReplyDelete
Trump can definitely win. The establishment of the Republican party could solve this Trump problem today.Take away from Trump the illegal immigration issue. This can be done very easily. Step 1:Deport illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes.Step 2:Defund sanctuary cities.Step 3 reattach a funding mechanism to the border wall legislation which has already been passed by Congress. This takes this issue away from Trump. So called "Trump Problem" solved.ReplyDelete

BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIPReplyDelete
Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too firstname.lastname@example.org , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. email@example.com. You can also call him or add him up on whatsapp on +2349057353987. Thanks Dr for saving my marriage am very grateful.

ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS.ReplyDelete
For 8 years my husband and i tried ceaselessly to conceive to no avail. The gynecologist told us that the Fibroid is causing difficulties and he recommended a surgery. I love my life so much and i did't want to undergo any surgery because i was told it's too painful and also there are 80% chances of it growing back. I was discussing this with a close colleague who told me how Dr williams helped her cousin cure fibroid and fallopian tube blockage. I contacted him and he was so amazing with encouragements and finally sent me a very effective medicine that changed my life for good. It has been four years now and i am still very fine and i have son i call my own naturally. You too can reach him too on firstname.lastname@example.org for his medicine
I felt like ending it i lost my husband to another woman 2 weeks ago after 27 years of marriage . We had a lovely marriage but he started a relationship with a co worker who chased after him . He is living away near his work, and he refuses to talk to me or to come home . I am devastated and am finding it hard to cope i was emotionally down . I wish I did not love him and that I could move on but I can't . I don't know how to stop feeling like this I wish I could and its eating me away and I m starting to feel ill. I have degraded myself begging him to come home all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Noble can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and I also came across several testimonies about this particular man so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Noble . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details, E-mail: email@example.com , Web blog: http://drnoblespell.blogspot.com.ng/.
