The Televised Cabinet

The first meeting of President Donald Trump's full Cabinet evolved into an unusual tribute session Monday as heads of his executive branch agencies hailed the opening five months of Trump's administration while the President himself listened on closely.

It's not the typical way presidents have convened the top members of their governments. Usually, a Cabinet meeting begins with short remarks from the President before more detailed talks among the group behind closed doors.

Instead, Trump opened with a lengthy statement touting his own work before having each Cabinet secretary provide their own assessment of the administration's progress so far.


And on it went, with each official describing in glowing terms their admiration for Trump's work.

Jesus. The video is at this link
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and his staff on Monday recorded a video mocking President Donald Trump and a bizarre televised portion of his Monday Cabinet meeting.


In the video Schumer shared on Twitter, his staffers took turns praising the senator’s performance on the Sunday shows—and his hair. One staffer copied almost verbatim the words of praise Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, offered the President earlier in the day.


Schumer’s staffer told the senator, “Thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda” before the group broke out in laughter.

Video: Wow.  The respect they have for their president is awesome.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.

UPDATE: Speaking of Trump mockage...
