Donald Trump is the Greatest President in the History of History

President Donald Trump.

As Chris Cillizza writes for CNN, the White House just keeps getting weirder, and weirder, and weirder…

Donald Trump did something very different in his Cabinet meeting Monday.

First, he reviewed the various alleged successes of his first 143 days and made this remarkable claim: “Never has there been a president….with few exceptions…who’s passed more legislation, who’s done more things than I have.” [Pols emphasis]

Um, ok.  While Trump has signed a number of executive orders and actions — the most high profile of which, the so-called “travel ban” was, again, blocked by a court on Monday — what he hasn’t really done is pass actual legislation through Congress. The health care bill is tied up in Senate machinations. Tax reform hasn’t moved an inch. Funding for the border wall hasn’t happened. And so on…

…But, that wasn’t even close to the weirdest part of the Cabinet meeting!

Once Trump finished touting his administration’s accomplishments, he turned to several of his newly-minted Cabinet secretaries like Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. Each of those Cabinet secretaries lavished praise on Trump, which he accepted without comment but with a broad smile.

At first, I thought Trump was just going to have the new members of the Cabinet spend a few minutes praising him. NOPE!  It soon became clear that Trump planned to have every Cabinet member speak. And when I say “speak” what I really mean is “praise Trump for his accomplishments, his foresight, his just being awesome.”

Cillizza quotes White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as saying the following about President Trump: “We thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda.”

This is probably going to get worse before it gets anywhere close to better. If you are a member of Trump’s cabinet or senior staff, how do you look yourself in the mirror?

    Geez, even our own Potted Plant, Congressman Lamebrain has passed more legislation than Trump has.  What Cillizza didn't report were the gold-embossed Trump brand kneepads presented to the Cabinet as well.

    Moldy and Gerbils should expect their Chinese made knockoff versions arriving soon too!

    What, no mention of how the president cuckishly bent a knee in supplication to the Caliphate while in Saudi Arabia?

    At some point, even the dirtiest of the republicans will have to admit potus is off his rocker.  He is in space, and that space is not on Earth.  There is no light because the light bulb is burned out.  The gas left the gas head.

    Yeah, he is a senile old man who might even be facing a Ronnie finale.

    Stalin would be deeply proud!!! . . .

    . . . at this point I'm deeply worried, not so much about Trump (nothing he does would surprise, so worry isn't practicable), but that cabinet full of sycophantic Moderati, to a person, all reciting their pledge of allegiance to the Trumpling-of-Id, . . . 

    . . . what the fucking fuck is that??!!??

    Where are the goddamn adults?  Seriously.  Has no one in that room any sense of decency, or propriety, or honor, or self-respect, or an iota of conscience??? . . .

      Nope, Dio. That's how they got the gig. No one with an ounce of self-respect will touch this administration with a 10-foot pole. That's why there are still so many empty slots. It's not for lack of effort. People are saying, "Thanks, but I'll pass."
