Donald Trump moaned about his tiny desk today, as he sat down to sign some laws. The President joined a ceremony in the White House’s Roosevelt Room, where he was set to add his seal to four new pieces of legislation. He’s used to the Oval Office’s huge Resolute Desk, crafted from the timbers of a 19th century exploration vessel. But when he saw the diminutive furniture offered to him this afternoon, he declared: “This looks like a child’s desk!”
The portable desk is deployed when the President signs laws in rooms other than the Oval, and while it’s a smaller than average, it features a full size Presidential Seal. He went on: “This is the smallest desk I’ve ever seen. Very, very glamorous, right?” Some have noticed similarities between the President’s tiny table and a recent sketch from Saturday Night Live.
