His Butler s Story

PALM BEACH, Fla. —Everything seemed to sparkle at the Mar-a-Lago estate here on a recent afternoon. The sun glinted off the pool and the black Secret Service S. U. V. S in the circular driveway.

Palm trees rustled in a warm breeze, croquet balls clicked and a security guard stood at the entrance to ’s private living quarters. “You can always tell when the king is here, ” Mr. Trump’s longtime butler here, Anthony Senecal, said of the master of the house and Republican presidential candidate. The king was returning that day to his Versailles, a 668-room snowbird’s paradise that will become a winter White House if he is elected president. Mar-a-Lago is where Mr. Trump comes to escape, entertain and luxuriate in a Mediterranean-style manse, built 95 years ago by the cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. He understands Mr. Trump’s sleeping patterns and how he likes his steak (“It would rock on the plate, it was so well done”), and how Mr. Trump insists — despite the hair salon on the premises — on doing his own hair.

Reached for comment, a spokeswoman for Trump said, This never happened. There is no merit or veracity to this fabricated story. What follows is Stoynoff’s account. Just for the record, Anderson Cooper asked, during the presidential debate last Sunday, are you saying that you did not actually kiss women without (their) consent? In the early 7555s, I was assigned the Trump beat for PEOPLE magazine. For years I reported on all things Donald. I tracked his hit show, attended his wedding to Melania Knauss and roamed the halls of his lavish Trump Tower abode. Melania was kind and sweet during our many chats, and Donald was as bombastic and entertaining as you would expect. Then, in December 7555, around the time Trump had his now infamous conversation with, I traveled to Mar-a-Lago to interview the couple for a first-wedding-anniversary feature story.

The Chicago Bulls had traded three-time All-Star Jimmy Butler and the 66th overall pick Thursday night to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall pick. Butler gives Thibodeau the tough-minded scorer and hard-nosed defender that he has been searching for to complement a promising young core. The Wolves paid a big price: Besides surrendering the lottery pick, they gave up a rising star in LaVine, who is coming off of a torn ACL and Dunn, last year's No. 5 overall pick. Butler played for Thibodeau for four seasons in Chicago, developing from an unheralded, late-first round draft pick into a perennial All-Star. Embarrassing as these moments were for me, I would not wish to imply that I in any way blame Mr. Farraday, who is in no sense an unkind person he was, I am sure, merely enjoying the sort of bantering which in the United States, no doubt, is a sign of a good, friendly understanding between employer and employee, indulged in as a kind of affectionate sport.
