Trump's recent cabinet meeting was more of a Praise and Worship Team extravaganza, with Reince Preibus sinking to such a pathetic low as to state:
“We thank you for the opportunity and the blessing to serve your agenda.”
Trump’s Cabinet, With a Prod, Extols the ‘Blessing’ of Serving Him
"A few cabinet members diverged from the apparent script. Jim Mattis, the secretary of defense — whose reputation for independence has been a comfort to Mr. Trump’s critics — refrained from personally praising the president, instead aiming his comments at American troops fighting and dying for their country.
“Mr. President, it’s an honor to represent the men and women of the Department of Defense, and we are grateful for the sacrifices our people are making in order to strengthen our military so our diplomats always negotiate from a position of strength,” Mr. Mattis said as Mr. Trump sat, stern-faced."
Marines. The Few. The Proud. The 'we don't kiss no asses.'
Trump really doesn't get Mattis. He can't. He isn't equipped for it, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically.
