The quote getting the most attention after Donald Trump’s surreal “all praise Trump” cabinet meeting is from Reince Priebus. The Trump White House Chief of Staff made King Lear‘s daughters Goneril and Regan look like suck-up amateurs as he said to Trump: “We thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda.” Cordelia wasn’t the only one shaking her head. Senator Chuck Schumer got a sad kick out of the ego-serving proceedings too. So Schumer made the video below:

There is no word yet out of North Korea whether unofficial US diplomat and former NBA and Celebrity Apprentice star Dennis Rodman will give similar praise to Kim Yong-un during his visit. As of this morning, no one in Trump’s cabinet has taken to calling him “Dear Leader” — the title the North Korean-controlled media has transferred to Kim Yong-un from his father Kim Yong-il. Even Rodman has so far refrained, despite appearing on Celebrity Apprentice twice, from calling Trump “Dear Leader” though he claims a similar friendship with Trump and Jong-un.
