"Awe-inspiring" isn't quite the word I'm looking for...
Of course this is the pumpkin that the most self-obsessed White House in history chooses to highlight on its official photo feed. Why wouldn't it be?
I mean, it wouldn't be better to highlight something that shows a little bit of humility or self-deferential humor or anything. No, why not find the most worshipful image in the whole country, and make sure that everyone knows that this is how Dear Leader likes to be portrayed!
What a bunch of self-important amateur losers we have working in this White House.
