    TRUMP APPOINTEES TAKE TURNS PRAISING HIM IN BIZARRE CABINET MEETING
    One reporter called it “the most exquisitely awkward public event I’ve ever seen.”


    Donald Trump’s disapproval rating may be at an all-time high, but inside the White House, the president could not be more popular. On Monday, Trump convened his first full Cabinet meeting since taking office, gathering the heads of every major government agency for a press gaggle around the elliptical mahogany table that occupies a prominent place in the West Wing.

    Both of these fools are :nuts:, Trump and the Mayor :facepalm:


    Trump tells mayor of island literally sinking into the ocean ‘not to worry about sea level rise’
    Trump denies the key reason Tangier Island is doomed, but the mayor still loves him


    ... Last week, CNN aired a story about Tangier, an island in the Chesapeake Bay so low-lying that a mere 83 acres can support its inhabitants.

    ... The subject of the call then turned to the island’s fate. Trump “said not to worry about sea-level rise,” Eskridge explained. “He said, ‘Your island has been there for hundreds of years, and I believe your island will be there for hundreds more.’”
