‘Dear Leader’ Trump’s Sycophantic Cabinet Meeting Mercilessly Mocked
By Lee Moran
People online poked fun at the way President Donald Trump’s cabinet lavished praise on their “dear leader” during its first gathering on Monday.
Many likened the footage of cabinet members eulogizing Trump to an episode from his reality TV show “The Apprentice.” Here’s how Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) responded:
GREAT meeting today with the best staff in the history of the world!!! pic.twitter.com/ocE1xhEAac

Some Twitter users said the meeting bore a striking similarity to a scene from the “Harry Potter” movie franchise, while others questioned whether North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s cabinet members acted the same way.

Trump cabinet meeting is a fascinating depiction of what seems to be a meeting to pat Trump on the head and tell him he’s a good boy.
