President Donald Trump’s first full cabinet meeting on Monday was marked by nearly all the president’s cabinet members lavishing him with effusive praise — a spectacle that many media observers called “bizarre.”
Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in particular drew ridicule when he thanked Trump for “the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda” during the meeting, as some observers noted it was the kind of thing you’ve expect to see in North Korea.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had some fun at Trump’s expense on Monday afternoon when he and his staff posted a video that mocked Trump’s cabinet meeting by showing staffers offering gushing, over-the-top praise for the Senate minority leader.
“You have great hair,” one staffer told him. “Nobody has better hair than you.”
“Before we go any further, I just want to say thank you for the opportunity and the blessing to serve your agenda,” said another, directly quoting Priebus.
At this point, the entire staff burst out laughing.
