President Trump held his first Cabinet Meeting of the year, which as has become the case turned into a rambling news conference of sorts. This time around — among other things — Trump bashed recently departed Defense Secretary James Mattis, continued to lie about why the “DACA for wall” deal he once had on the table died (as we pointed out last week, it wasn’t because of a 9th Circuit court ruling), and most inexplicably defended Russia’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, and in his telling, that’s what caused the Soviet Union to fall. When it came time for all the Cabinet members to go around the table and praise Trump, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker was clearly the best prepared, praising the President for foregoing his planned Mar-a-Lago Christmas/New Year’s vacation.
