Meeting of the Mind at the White House

Art Schlesinger famously said that JFK’s cabinet was the single greatest collection of brainpower in the White House since Jefferson dined alone. I would submit that Wednesday night’s meeting between Trump, Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock was an intellectual void that dwarfs the Grand Canyon.

That’s not a “Who’s Who,” it’s a “Good god, why?” Amazingly, Trump managed to find a room in which he actually is the smartest person. This picture especially cracks me up:

I think it’s safe to say this is not a meeting of the Oxford Alumni Society. Trump was showing them a picture he colored and they were all praising him for his ability to stay within the lines. Maybe this is why they want to keep the visitor logs secret. They even posed for a picture in front of Hillary Clinton’s portrait:

This seems like a good time to remind everyone that Nugent once told President Obama to “”suck on my machine gun” and said of Clinton, “”Hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch.” Keep it classy, Donald. Keep it classy.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.
