Trump's Bizarro cabinet meeting has inspired my newest and most ambitious pointless gesture. I just sent this letter to all the cabinet members and the Vice President:

The video of the Monday June 12, 2017 cabinet meeting is never going away, and I'm curious: How does it feel to have President Trump put you on national TV and permanently define your legacy as nothing more than a subservient spineless toady?
You have one chance. Under the provisions of the 25th amendment, the Vice President and the cabinet can submit a memo declaring the President unable to do his job. If that display in the cabinet meeting wasn't enough to finally convince you that Donald Trump is not up to the job of being a marginally decent and rational human being, much less the job of being President of the United States, then I guess the role of spineless toady suits you.
Snap out of it! Do the right thing!

Clearly, Donald Trump does have one outstanding talent: The unerring ability to find and hire toadies. This is probably why so many positions remain unfilled. He is running out of toadies.
