Well, the Cabinet meeting is going swimmingly:

Trump again raises Obama's Netflix deal while griping about the forced cancelation of Doral G7. He wonders why no one scrutinized Obama's business dealings (both the Netflix deal and Obama's book deal were struck after he left office).




.@realDonaldTrump says during White House cabinet meeting that the G7 at his Doral resort would have been the greatest G7 ever, Democrats went crazy about that plan even though he would have done it for free. (Trump announced Saturday he would no longer hold the G7 at Doral.)




“We never gave a commitment to the Kurds,” Trump said just now in Cabinet meeting, per pool




.@realDonaldTrump says he does not know @TulsiGabbard but she is not a Russian agent, per @steveholland1 in cabinet meeting

“I’m the one who did the capturing. I’m the one who knows more about it than you people or the fake pundits," Trump says of ISIS to the media assembled in the Cabinet Room.




Trump on Syria during his Cabinet meeting this AM, per pooler @chrisjohnson82 “Plenty of Turks have been killed because of conflict on their borders. You have to look at both ways”

Seriously, this is rather like when al gore supposedly claimed to have invented the Internet.

(eta: of course he did no such thing, but the media fixated on a deliberate twisting of his correct claim to have done more than anyone else in congress to have brought it about.)

Are we to think Donnie single-handedly threw isis fighters into prison cells?

Will the media cover this statement similarly?

Gee, I wonder....

10. You gotta wonder about these Cabinet secretaries

Surely one or two of them actually care about their department or agency... or maybe even their country. And they sit there in the meeting wanting to talk about improving exports or the need to prevent the extinction of the honey bee or whatever, and all Trump wants to talk about is himself and his grievances.

The defense secretary last week seemed to indicate he was troubled about Trump's sudden abandonment of the Kurds... but does he mention this? Does he contradict Trump's statement that we'd never committed to the Kurds?

Probably not. He'll sit there looking down and grimacing occasionally.

I cannot believe that Trump actually managed to find even 20 men and women in this country who don't care about America, their mission, or even their own reputations... but I think he did.

I've heard that being close to the airport is actually a security nightmare because Doral is right under several flight plans. Hundreds of planes would have to be diverted to keep the location safe.

Not that he actually gives a shit about keeping people safe or inconveniencing people.

55. The Doral is run down and dirty.

I looked at guest-submitted photos on Trip Advisor. At first glance, the rooms look okay. The decor is very 90s and dated. But whatever. As long as it’s clean, right?

Then I zoomed in to take a closer look at the furniture in the rooms. It is worn out and dirty. The cushions on the chairs and sofas are mashed down. No wonder the place is infested with bedbugs.

The ballroom carpets look faded and dirty, too.

It’s hard to imagine why people pay hundreds of dollars a night to stay there. I’m sure it was the bees knees at one point, but now it’s just gross.
