Trump held a cabinet meeting today in which cabinet and senior staff members were encouraged to share their thoughts on the glory that is Donald J. Trump and the incomparable honor of working for him:

Creepy as fuck. In other news, Newt Gingrich had a change of heart about the Mueller investigation. Here’s what he said a few weeks ago:
Here’s what he said today:
To echo Katy Tur, it’s almost like Gingrich doesn’t know we can see old tweets. But what changed? Were they expecting Mueller to phone in the investigation, and they’re now alarmed by the folks he’s bringing on board?
I think they’re panicking because Kushner and Flynn worked together to make a deal with the Russians to overturn sanctions in exchange for that dodgy Russian bank bailing out Kushner’s distressed asset on Fifth Avenue. Team Trump would love to play the “political newcomer” card, but that’s not plausible with Flynn at the meeting.
Will Mueller & Co. be able to lay that corruption bare? I have no idea, but my feeling is the whole house of cards would come tumbling down if they did. Maybe that’s why Team Trump is using cabinet meetings to puff up Trump’s fragile ego and muttering about firing Mueller.
