Donald Trump Is Fed 'Propaganda' Every Morning to Keep Him Happy

According a report from Vice, three current and former White House staff members have told reporters the packets contain "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".

In the past, Trump has asked his staff to restrict memos to one page and it's rare for his meetings with them to last longer than 15 minutes.

Running the White House is a stressful job, but Donald Trump's team have found a unique way to keep a smile on the president's dial.

Apparently, President Donald Trump gets a dose of hero-worship to puff up his already over-inflated ego twice a day.

The process of creating the dossier begins at the Republican National Committee's "war room" - a group that is tasked with monitoring local and global news, digital media and print media to analyze how the party, its candidate and their opponents are being perceived by the world at large.

"It needs to be more f-king positive", was the only feedback the comms team ever received from Trump, according to the official source - earning the folders the nickname "the propaganda document" among those involved.

Colbert Says Trump Totally Earned a Vacation "After Months of Grueling Golf"
On Friday, August 5, 2017, President Trump departed the White House for a 17-day vacation at his golf club in New Jersey.

The report from Vice claims that one document is prepared for Trump at 9:30 a.m. and a follow-up at 4:30 p.m., and was a very coveted assignment. Vice added that on the days there isn't enough positivity to pass along, staffers begin asking the RNC for flattering photos of the president.

The creation of folder filled with only positive news of the president by the RNC is something that seems laughable to some former White House officials. Instead, they gather at 6 a.m.to watch the morning shows, read newspapers, and trawl the internet for headlines, chyrons, tweets, and photos related to the president.

The Obama administration also compiled news packets for the president's consumption, but former President Barack Obama's special adviser, David Axelrod, said that the dossiers were never focused exclusively on positive coverage.

The first "Real News" video appeared a little over a week ago on Mr Trump's Facebook page and featured the president's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, who is married to his son Eric.

The "propaganda document" is the latest in a string of reports about how White House staff keep Trump happy engaged in conversations and meetings.
