Donald Trump, Today, In His Own Goddamn Words

Donald Trump held his first Cabinet meeting of the year today, and if you’re wondering what to expect from Trump in 2019, look no further than the poster on his desk.

Note: The wall didn’t work.

Meanwhile, during a Q and A with the press afterward, Trump talked out loud again. With his voice. He probably shouldn’t have.

Here are some of the choice quotes from that Q&A.

— “Russia used to be the Soviet Union. Afghanistan made it Russia. Because they went bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan. Russia.” Wow.

— On Syria: “We’re talking about sand and death. That’s what we’re talking about.”

— “I was all alone in the White House on Christmas, except for all the guys on the lawn with machine guns.”

— “I could be the most popular person in Europe. I could run for any office I wanted to, but I don’t.”

— “President Obama fired Mattis. And, essentially so did I.” I mean, if by making deranged, unhinged decisions that provoked Mattis to resign for moral reasons, I guess so?

— “I know more about drones than anybody.” Really? Could you come over and help my son with his toy drone, because neither one of us can operate it. I don’t even know where the f**king plug to charge it is supposed to go.

— “I think I would have been a good general, but who knows?” says the man with five draft deferments.

— “They say the wall is immoral, you better do something about the Vatican, because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all. The wall is immoral? Look at all of the countries that have walls. They work 100 percent.”

(As you may note, Kate Beckinsale has been replaced as the Trump header photo with Angela Bassett for 2019. Readers offered a ton of great choices, but ultimately, I settled with the celeb with the best, most expressive, and most available images from our photo service. As this header suggests, it’s already paying off.)
