Such a Blessing

Trump’s First Cabinet Meeting —



Y’all, I consider this his eulogy and it’s real sweet of him to get that behind us so we don’t have to sit around thinking of nice things to say about him after he leaves.

Groveling is not a pretty sight.  Rick Perry spoke thusly —

“Mr. President, an honor to be on the team,” Perry told Trump, a man he branded as a “cancer on conservatism” when he ran against him for the GOP presidential nomination. “This last week, I had the great privilege to represent America in China at the Green Energy Ministerial. Good timing. They needed to hear why America was stepping away from the Paris Accord and they did. And that America is not stepping back but we’re stepping into place and sending some messages that we’re still going to be leaders in the world when it comes to the climate, but we’re not going to be held hostage to some executive order that was ill thought out.

“So my hat’s off to you for taking that stand,” Perry told the president who rescued him from a Round Top retiree’s life. “And for sending a clear message around the world that America is going to continue to lead in the area of energy.”

Oh Lord, ” … And that America is not stepping back but we’re stepping into place and sending some messages that we’re still going to be leaders,” the one person in the world who understood that was Donald Trump.

  1. That was really uncomfortable to watch! Sick…

  2. Seriously did not know that Perry could speak for more than 60 seconds without screwing up!

  3. @maymoon
    Yes it was. But what if one of these folks was you and you were at your company’s weekly managers’ meeting? I bet it would still be uncomfortable to watch. This just isn’t done. Anywhere. In the universe.

    Without seeing the script, we still don’t.

  4. Can’t remember when I last heard of so much butt-kissing and brown-nosing in one room. Figures that anybody who takes a cabinet post with Trump wouldn’t have any self-respect.

    America is leading in the field of energy – leading the world into WaterWorld

    Who knew Chuck Schumer had a sense of humor? (fuhgeddaboud his cousin Amy) Chuck and his staff did an excellent trolling of Donnie.

    Seriously. Kudos to Chuck. Go Democrats and expose the naked snacilbupeR for who they are: crass and craven corporate sponsored enemies of democracy.

    O/T With love to Jane, I had a fantastic time at the game last night introducing KJ to basketball at its best. Winning is good. But knowing that the Golden State Warriors want no part of any sham with Donnie is a plus.
    Steve Kerr is da man!

    This whole scenario makes me want to vomit. How these people can look at themselves in the mirror is beyond me. How I wish just one of them had the balls to get up and tell him they would not put up with this crap; I’m outta here. I hate these people so much. Rick Perry would kiss Satan’s ass if he thought it’d get him something. Wait … that’s what he just did.

  8. WA Skeptic says:

    Oh, barf.

  9. Karen Byrd says:

    I commented elsewhere that when I saw Trump’s cabinet meeting, I was immediately reminded of a scene in the TV series “The Tudors”, when Henry VIII addressed his council. They had the same look of fear and shame in that scene as I saw on the cabinet heads yesterday.

  10. We are North Korea now?

  11. Hey, look at the bright side. There is enough material from that meeting to develop oppo films for the D’s for a LOOOng time.

  12. Jane & PKM says:

    Cheryl, when Dennis Rodman is in North Korea and making more sense than either Donnie or Rexxon, we might be the country below North Korea in geopolitical terms.

  13. Watching Ron Rosenstein, the Acting AG, take on the Senate Committee. Seems that Jeffie did not want to take any questions so he bagged it for the day. Yup. Sessions should know better than whistle past a graveyard.

  14. @Jane & PKM

    The day that Dennis Rodman somehow speaks more sensibly than the SecState … I’m lost for a comparison. We are so screwed.

  15. dbtexas says:

    I wonder if any of these dimwits know the meaning of the word “emasculate?” No one with a sense of self pride and decency would behave in such a manner, particularly to a blatant narcissist like Trump.

    Jane & PKM, thanks for the article concerning Kerr. Greg Popovich was mentioned too. I deeply Popovich him as a coach, but more so as a human being. Reading the comments under the article however, demonstrates we have a long way to go.

  16. Jane & PKM says:

    Micr, we’ve reached that point where Dennis Rodman is the “adult in the room.” Or, as you say: “We are so screwed.”

    Wish I had something optimistic to share. But with pRick Perry sitting on our nuclear dump while Dolt45 twitches his tiny little vulgarian fingers between red launch and ordering a diet drink buttons, “screwed” is the optimistic viewpoint.

  17. The more I thought about this NKorea situation I think there’s only one answer, one solution: appoint Dennis R as a Special Envoy to Kim, Jong-un. Give Rodman a red Blackberry to use to receive the latest tweepolicies from Orange Foolius.

    Rodman has survived South Oak Cliff, Southeastern Oklahoma State, the 2000 Dallas Mavericks, 5 months of marriage to Carmen Elektra (talk aboot check yore ego at the door!), alcohol, and drugs. No one is better prepared to deal with the lunatic Supreme Leader than Rodman. And he’ll probably do a pretty good job in North Korea as well.

  18. Lunargent says:

    This was absolutely nauseating to watch.

    These are the alleged elites, who are supposed to guide and advise this feckless manbaby president? These servile, fawning, obsequious lickspittles? Were there goons out of camera range, brandishing baseball bats at their skulls? Nothing else would excuse this pathetic spectacle.

    And smirking, preening Trump takes it all as his due. This is a scene expected from a tyrant, a despot. This is not the way that leaders of a free people behave. All that was missing were the throne and the royal ring to kiss.

  19. Dixie Beal says:

    Considering that most of the cabinet is as unqualified to hold their position as Trump is to hold his, they probably meant it when they said it was an “honor” to serve in their capacity, a position they never could have dreamed of under a real president. What a sickening display.

  20. JAKvirginia says:

    No. I just can’t. Everything I could say would make Rude Pundit blush and send momma running for the Comet cleanser and a scrub brush.

    Though the outright groveling gives me a wry smile. *smirk*

  21. Teh Gerg says:

    The state of mind that would cause Trump to want this and his quislings to agree to it is dangerous and disgusting. This is way too close to the propaganda shows and ego stroking that the Kim family of North Korea and Chairman Mao required. This is not only flagrantly unAmerican, it’s plain blithering stupid.

  22. GAK!!!! URP!! Speeeeeeeeewwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lunargent, and all the rest, your descriptions of that, that, eeuuuwwwww, are right on target. OMG. I’ll bet Orange Whore is actually taking cue from Kim Jong Un as one of the despots he admires.

    “And we will rise up,
    we will rise up . . . ”

    And keep rising up, as long as it takes. America is in a crisis and it’s up to us to ensure that the Good Guys win. AND WE WILL. Period.

  23. Marge Wood says:

    Ricky knows where his cornbread is greased.

  24. Teh Gerg–I’ve heard him compared to Idi Amin as well. Don’t leave that jewel off your list!

  25. maryelle says:

    The only cabinet member who didn’t kiss a** was Mattis who said it was an honor to represent the men and women in the armed forces who serve this country with courage and dedication. Now that is a noble sentiment! Mad Dog earned some respect and stuck out like a sore middle finger. He’ll probably be fired next week.

  26. You know that term Colbert used to describe Donnie’s role to Putin? The one that everyone freaked out because of? Well, it looks like Donnie has got a room full of holsters.

  27. Marcia in CO says:

    @Cheryl … Bazinga … a room full of holsters! Yup!!! And no lube required!!!
