    U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House June 12, 2017, in Washington, D.C.

    President Donald Trump opened his Cabinet meeting Monday the way many might expect him to: listing the administration's accomplishments and criticizing Democratic "obstructionists" for hindering his agenda.

    But CNBC reports that the meeting took an unexpected turn when Trump asked Cabinet members to name their positions and give their thoughts on the administration one-by-one.

    "Start with Mike," Trump said, referring to Vice President Mike Pence. The vice president's introduction began a succession of praise and gratitude for the president, which included comments from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

    Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer and his aides mocked the meeting's unusual format in a parody video posted on the senator's Twitter account captioned "GREAT meeting today with the best staff in the history of the world!!!"

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
