A folder of documents is prepared just for the President, twice a day

Vice News breaks the story on this secret White House routine:

Quote

Twice a day since the beginning of the Trump administration, a special folder is prepared for the president. The first document is prepared around 9:30 a.m. and the follow-up, around 4:30 p.m. [are delivered] to President Trump personally, White House sources say.

These sensitive papers, described to VICE News by three current and former White House officials, don’t contain top-secret intelligence or updates on legislative initiatives. Instead, the folders are filled with screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful.

One White House official said the only feedback the White House communications shop, which prepares the folder, has ever gotten in all these months is: “It needs to be more @#$%& positive.”

Oh. Em. Gee.

Not exactly a surprise.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Since I can't imagine why this info would be classified in any way, this would be a public record, and so subject to disclosure. So presumably, hopefully, someone is already doing a FOIA request and will get a production of every days folders to date. Not sure why that would matter, other than to show how ridiculous Trump is.

edit: there may be an exception for presidential records, so oh well.
