Some real damage has been done to the president and his administration by the leaks that regularly come from the White House. Anthony Scaramucci, in his short-lived role as the White House communications director, said leaks were his top concern. Well, now a new report — leaked by personnel familiar with the president’s daily activities — once again paints Trump in a less than flattering light.
A source told Vice News that President Trump gets a folder twice a day that contains all the nice things said about Trump that day, as well as photos of him looking powerful. Many inside the administration refer to the folder as “the Propaganda Document.”
The source explained that every day at 6 a.m., administration members search the internet looking for nice Tweets and posts about the president and unearth any articles that paint Trump in a positive light.
According to The Daily Mail, the document normally consists of 20-25 pages, and Trump usually receives the first folder around 9:30 a.m. A second folder of staffer-acquired information is delivered again later in the day around 4:30 p.m.
If there are no flattering articles or posts to deliver to the president that day, staffers begin looking for pictures of Trump “looking powerful” and “authoritative.”
The report detailed that two of Trump’s top officials who are no longer with the administration, ex-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, both wanted to be the one to deliver the document to Trump.
Business Insider reported that the only feedback the staffers ever receive is “it needs to be more f***ing positive.” An RNC official, who works on the document daily, said: “Maybe it’s good for the country that the president is in a good mood in the morning.”
If this is indeed true, it would further cement the fact that Trump has a short attention span and must receive only one-page documents dealing with presidential task, as Reuters claimed in May. Either way, this seems to be one of the most unusual things we’ve heard about this administration.
