Commentary on faith & politics committed to the truth in Jesus Christ and in all things around us. America once loved God but has become a land fallen, in love with money.Our politicians sellout votes for money, for favor to the rich. The Religious Right embrace mammon's ideology and glorify nationalism equating politics with faith, so "of the nation" instead of just "in the nation". The Religious Left cling to the nobel cause but decline the cure so afraid of a real internal personal relationship with the heavenly Father that yearns so very much to be close to them. As it is both Right and Left are so bereft of real introspection. Pray we all have the courage to stand up for what is right in one of the toughest places to do so - our in-group. A change is coming.

Cabinet Members Fawn Over President Trump, Gushingly Praising Him

Many of these sycophant cabinet members fawned over Trump's approval of their praise of him no doubt, whew!, but Mattis and Tillerson are probably the exceptions. The look especially on Secretary Tillerson's face says it all for him. Lol. Tillerson knows Trump's ego requires this praise in exchange for job security and Tillerson is obviously not cool with it as the weird atmosphere in the room weighs upon him knowing this media covered brown nose meeting will be publicly mocked and of course he was right.

All hail President Trump.

The President of the United States held a cabinet meeting on Monday that began with cabinet members and senior staff going around the table to praise Trump on camera — a self -indulgence that drew immediate mockery on social media and from Chuck Schumer.

Trump got the ball rolling at the White House meeting, which was shown live on some news networks, lavishing praise on himself.

"Never has there been a president, with few exceptions — case of FDR, he had a major depression to handle — who has passed more legislation and who has done more things than what we’ve done," Trump declared.

The fawning began with Vice President Pence.

“It is the greatest privilege of my life to serve as vice president. The president is keeping his word to the American people,” he said.

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry — who reportedly urged the President not to drop out of the Paris climate agreement — praised him for doing just that.
“My hat’s off to you for taking that stand and sending a clear message around the world,” Perry said.
Chief of Staff Reince Priebus took the admiration to the next level.

“On behalf of the entire senior staff around you, Mr. President, we thank you for the opportunity and the blessing that you’ve given us to serve your agenda and the American people,” Priebus — whose job is reportedly on thin ice — said.

Health Secretary Tom Price told Trump, "I can't thank you enough for the privileges you've given me and the leadership that you've shown."
“And we’re continuing to work very hard every day to accomplish these goals,” he added.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who has been cleaning up many of Trump's diplomatic messes, settled on, "I think the international community knows we’re back."

Despite Trump’s boasts to the contrary, the meeting came as the White House struggles to advance its agenda amid the investigations into Russia’s election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

So far no major legislation has made its way through Congress. The White House has been dogged by reports of infighting and disarray. And the president has repeatedly sought out conflict on social media, distracting from the issues his advisers are trying to promote.

Within a few hours, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer — one of Trump’s most outspoken critics — tweeted a parody video of his young staff exalting him.
One staffer praised Schumer’s performance on a Sunday talk show. "Your tone was perfect. You were right on message," the aide said.

Others then praised his “great hair” and “the blessing” of getting to work with him.
“GREAT meeting today with the best staff in the history of the world!!!” Schumer wrote in a message with the 25 second video.

My take:  This doesn't surprise me at all after what we have witnessed relative to Trump's insecure ego and it's demand for adulating loyalty. How grown men can lower themselves to fawn over another man's approval in this way is embarrassing. It is like the critics said "it all reminds them of supplicants currying favor on The Apprentice". Even worse it reminds me of how cabinet members of darker regimes feel pressured to heap praise upon Dear Leader ie North Korea or in Beijing China.

I read CBN trying to defend Trump in this but what those Christian defenders of Trump are messing in this is that it is Trump's ego and need even demand for this sycophant(yes, this is where the phrase; "suck up" comes from) adulation that are at the center of the joke.

Members of Obama's cabinet said had this began to take place in his cabinet meeting Obama would have burst out in laughter before the second cabinet member had finished fawning. Right now the rest of the nations are bursting out in laughter at our laughingstock administration and Trump pretending all is great when it clearly is not in a "praise heaped upon him" meeting compounds the power of the joke. ROFLMFO

I'm really thinking Secretary Rex Tillerson is feeling the weirdness of all this and is looking for an out about now. I mean really, this is great comic relief. Every time I look at the photo above I can hardly stop laughing. Lol. Seriously, let's go back up to the top photo.
