Good week for:
Sycophancy, after President Trump turned a Cabinet meeting into a testimonial to his incredible leadership, with Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Health Secretary Tom Price, and more than a dozen others taking turns saying it w as a “blessing” and “an incredible honor” and “privilege” to work for him.
Making good, after a British professor kept his promise to eat pages of his pro-Brexit book live on TV if he got the U.K. election results wrong. “It’s a hardback, so there are a lot of chemicals,” said Matthew Goodwin, as he chewed the pages.
Posterity, after Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) introduced a bill to enshrine all of President Trump’s tweets in the National Archives. The proposed law is called the Communications Over Various Feeds Electronically for Engagement, or COVFEFE Act. ■
