In an apparently desperate propaganda photo-op, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany handed CBS reporter Lesley Stahl a binder supposedly containing President Donald Trump’s “accomplishments” on healthcare, only to tout it himself and accidentally reveal that it’s a book of blank pages.
Despite claiming that he has a plan to replace Obamacare, Trump has yet to release it and has done little to nothing to improve healthcare in this country. But Trump wants everyone to believe that he’s done a lot, so McEnany presented Stahl with a thick binder allegedly containing everything Trump has done on healthcare the same day Stahl interviewed Trump for “60 Minutes,” an interview he stormed out of like an angry toddler.
Handing Lesley Stahl just a small part of what President @realDonaldTrump has done for healthcare in the United States.
She couldn’t believe how HUGE it was and said, “I can hardly lift this‼️” pic.twitter.com/RSWrzKo1or

Trump himself went on to tout the binder on his own Twitter feed, except that one of the photos shows Stahl opening it up to reveal blank pages.

Again, this was a mere photo-op so that Trump can use it as propaganda to pretend he has “achievements” when the reality is that he’s a failure.
Twitter users mocked him for the scheme:
But is there anything on those pages? Or are they blank like these? pic.twitter.com/x241V9MbVR

It was just a box of blank paper

It was more probably pages printed out from The Congressional Record which is the daily so called record of documents that each Congressperson sends down to the clerk each day and which is sight unseen by anyone else. I know because my first job was for Congressman John Conyers.

Are there Nobel prizes for most humiliating self-owns? If so, Trump definitely deserves one for presenting Lesley Stahl with a blank book and claiming it’s some huge gotcha moment. https://t.co/bcyz3Bp6Id

This is just another desperate length to which Trump is stooping to convince the American people to re-elect him, but the bottom line is that he’s spent more time on the golf course, tweeting, and watching television than he has been working for us, assuming he has worked for us at all instead of just for himself.
