In Bizarre First Full Cabinet Meeting, Trump Makes Members Take Turns Showering Him With Praise

“On behalf of the entire senior staff around you, Mr. President, we thank you for the opportunity and the blessing that you’ve give us to serve your agenda and the American people,” White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said on Monday during a meeting in which Trump had each Cabinet secretary take turns praising him and his policy agenda.

“And we’re continuing to work very hard every day to accomplish those goals,” he added.

During his first-ever Cabinet meeting at the White House, the president said he accomplished more than any other president aside from Franklin Roosevelt during his first six months in office.

Here’s how some reporters reacted to the meeting:
