On Friday, President Trump said during a press conference that he would be holding a “major meeting” all about the Department of Veterans Affairs at Mar-a-Lago that evening.
Good. The VA is in shambles and our vets need someone to step up to the plate and make things happen. That was actually one of Trump’s campaign talking points. He was going to do right by our vets.
VA Secretary David Shulkin sat next to the president, as he announced the meeting.
“So are you going to be at that meeting?” Trump asked. Shulkin shook his, no. “You heard about it, right? It’s going to be great — all about the VA.”
Heard about it?
You’re the president and he’s your VA secretary. If you’re going to have a meeting about the department he runs, maybe he needs a bit more formal arrangement than a last minute invite?
As it was, the “major meeting” did not take place, at least, not what most of us would think of as a major meeting.
Some kind of meeting did take place, however, and it could be very major.
The event never appeared on Trump’s official schedule for the day and such a meeting has not been included in future schedules.
Trump will have dinner with Ike Perlmutter, the CEO of Marvel, on Saturday, though it will be closed press, according to pool reports.
Trump announces a major meeting, then goes into a press closed meeting with Captain America’s boss?
Yeah, something big is about to go down!
Think about it: Captain America… aka… Steve Rogers, you know, he’s a captain, first of all, and he’s probably been collecting VA benefits longer than most of us have been alive.
We have seen that Trump likes putting military men in prime cabinet roles, and Cap has a great resume.
No doubt, Trump is aware of how he nearly single-handedly took out the leader of Hydra, the Red Skull, and drove the Nazi-era subgroup into the underground.
Then, years later, showing prescient leadership abilities, he assembled the Avengers to stop an extraterrestrial attack on New York.
Those aliens were illegal, too.
Ok, the Avengers seem to be on a break, now, but the captain has shown that he doesn’t mind stepping outside the box. He’s not afraid to mix things up, in order to get things done.
He’s just the kind of guy Trump appreciates!
He may be just the man to step in and shake up the status quo at the VA, so, WHOO HOO!
We can rest easy, because Trump is on top of things, and he surrounds himself with the best people.
While he’s got Perlmutter’s ear, he should see if he can score Doctor Strange to help pound out the specifics for a suitable Obamacare repeal bill.
