During a Cabinet meeting at the White House, the president touted the "record-setting pace" of his legislative agenda and claimed "never has there been a president, with few exceptions" who has accomplished more while in office. Health and Human Services secretary, Tom Price:
"I can't thank you enough for the privileges you've given me."
The tableau drew instant derision: "GREAT meeting today with the best staff in the history of the world!" tweeted Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer, a minority leader. And when I say "speak" what I really mean is "praiseTrump for his accomplishments, his foresight, his just being awesome".
Monday's meeting was billed as the first to bring together Trump's complete cabinet, nearly six months after Trump took office, after delays in confirming Perdue, as well as Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. "We will start with Mike (Vice-President) and then we will just go around, your name, your position", Trump instructed. They were put on the spot, and given what they (and we) know about Trump, the cabinet members have reason to fear for their careers if they fail to compliment in ways he finds flattering.
Energy Secretary Rick Perry gave his "hats off" to Mr Trump for taking a stand against the Paris climate accord.
Pretty mild praise at first glance-but look again: Sessions purposefully chose to say "serve you" instead of "serve the American people", which is the sort of nuance that Trump would notice.
Trump welcomed Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, all of whom were more recently confirmed. "I want to thank you for getting this country moving again, and also working again". "For four months I got bogged down in that swamp that you want to drain".
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told Mr Trump: "It was a great honour travelling with you around the country for the past year, and an even greater honour to be here serving on your Cabinet".
But while it was all smiles at the Cabinet meeting, elsewhere news of PresidentTrump's unusual take on it set the internet alight - and New York Senator Chuck Schumer offered up a parody of the meeting using his own staff.
