President Donald Trump took an unusual meeting for the top executive last week, according to a Saturday New York Times report.
The President reportedly sat flummoxed as the hard-right activists railed against women and transgender people serving in the military, accused White House staffers of blocking their favored people from jobs and insulted congressional Republican leadership.
To top it all off, the meeting was spearheaded by Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas’ wife Ginni, known to post conspiracy theories on her social media.
Per the Times, Trump said little during the meeting, though he did rise to the defense of Republican leadership when one meeting attendee suggested they be “tarred and feathered.” He apparently stuck up for Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), questioning what else the group thought they should have done during the shutdown.
