The first full Cabinet meeting with President Trump, members of his Cabinet and his White House staff was rather awkward because of Trump’s apparent need to hear from others how well he is doing. The most obsequious moment came when Chief of Staff Reince Priebus practically genuflected, gushing, “On behalf of the entire senior staff around you, Mr. President, we thank you for the opportunity and the blessing that you’ve given us to serve your agenda and the American people. And we’re continuing to work very hard every day to accomplish these goals.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer decided to troll Trump, posting a video of a supposed meeting of his staff that mocked Priebus’ saccharine verbiage, Schumer wrote, “GREAT meeting today with the best staff in the history of the world!!!” above the video, in which the exchange between Schumer and his staff went like this:
Schumer: “I want to thank everybody for coming; I just thought we’d go around the room. Lucy, who’d we do on the Sunday show yesterday?”
Lucy: “Your tone was perfect. You were right on message.”
Schumer: “Michelle, how’d my hair look coming out of the gym this morning?”
Michelle: “You have great hair. Nobody has better hair than you."
Aide: “You know, before we go any further, I just want to say thank you, for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda.”
That triggered the staff to break up laughing.
