Last night, President Trump had dinner with the nation’s “senior military leaders”–wish I could tell you who all was there but I can’t find a list–and their spouses.

At the conclusion the group posed for a photo, then Trumpianism set in:

White House reporters were summoned suddenly Thursday evening and told the president had decided he wanted the press to document a dinner he was holding with the military leaders and their wives.

Reporters were led hastily to the grand State Dining Room, where they walked into a scene of the president, his highest-ranking military aides and their wives posing for a group photo. The cameras clicked and they smiled. A joke was made about someone’s face being tired. Live classical music played.

Then, Trump gestured to the reporters in the room.

And from there we are off to the races

I suspect this is correct:

Trump obviously enjoys winding the media up and he obviously enjoys being a the center of attention. This statement does both things. I really hope the press has better things to do than beclown themselves running after this but I doubt it.
