Yesterday wasn’t all bad for President* Donald Trump. Sure, his Trumpcare vote got bumped because he didn’t have the votes, even though he tried everything from Sean Spicer doing prop comedy, to bullying, to bloviating. But while the GOP was flailing with their godawful and loathed Obamacare replacement, their Babadook was having a grand old time at the White House.
While meeting with truckers and trucking executives, Trump took advantage of the chance to climb into a big rig. And photographer Jim Watson’s shots were immediately a hit on Twitter.
The Mad Max: Fury Road comparisons came fast and furiousa.

There were also the obvious tiny hands jokes, an array about how the man running our nation has the temperament of a tantrum-pitching child.
