‘Cringing So Hard’: Twitter Reacts to Trump Asking Cabinet Members to Praise Him
We already know how Chuck Schumer reacted to President Trump‘s cabinet meeting from earlier today, but lets take a look how people on Twitter are taking it, shall we?
The president convened with his advisers at the White House on Monday, though things took a really bizarre turn when Reince Priebus and other surrogates went around the table and sung Trump’s praises. While this might have been the cabinet’s way of assessing the Trump presidency so far, it would seem there were a lot of people who looked at it and saw either celebration of narcissism or a contest of who could be the biggest kiss-up:

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.

With tough love like this, it's shocking that they can't get Trump to act presidential… https://t.co/oH0OS5dYy6

This interminable cabinet spray, where everybody pays tribute to Trump, is one of the most exquisitely awkward public events I've ever seen.

He absolutely would never ask anyone for loyalty though. Completely out of character. https://t.co/hVldvLyOtn
