Sen. Schumer Parodies Trump After Making His Cabinet Members Shower Him With Praise In Meeting

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) on Monday mocked President Trump’s first Cabinet meeting in which Trump made each Cabinet secretary take turns praising him and his policy agenda.




“GREAT meeting today with the best staff in the history of the world!!!” Schumer tweeted with a short video of his staffers seated around a conference room table showering him with praise.


The video features Schumer asking his staff “how we did on the Sunday shows,” but his staff quickly pivots to compliments.

“Your tone was perfect,” one staffer said. “You were right on message.”

Schumer asked one aide how his hair looked, to which she replied: “you have great hair — nobody has better hair than you.”




“I just want to say, thank you for the opportunity and the blessing to serve your agenda,” a male staffer added, mocking White House chief of staff Reince Priebus’ remarks during Trump’s cabinet meeting.

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

During the cabinet meeting, Trump said he had accomplished more than other president — aside from Franklin Roosevelt — during his first six months in office.

“Never has there been a president, with few exceptions — case of FDR, he had a major depression to handle — who has passed more legislation and who has done more things than what we’ve done,” Trump said.

Here’s how some reporters reacted to the meeting:
