“Prime meme material! President Donald Trump signed bills while sitting at a child-size desk Monday, March 27, and Twitter had so many jokes about the situation.
The POTUS, 70, was signing four new pieces of legislation in the Roosevelt Room of the White House when he remarked that the desk wasn`t quite up to his standards. `This looks like a child`s desk! But that`s OK,` he told the crowd of people towering over him.
Although the desk has been used by presidents before him, Trump, who is 6-foot-2, joked that the small wooden table with a full-size presidential seal on the front wasn`t big enough.

Trump may have mocked the tiny desk, but he would be well-advised to use it regularly, it makes his diminutive hands look normal.
In a perfect world the septuagenarian president would be safely ensconced in a nursing home, where the nursing staff would provide him with a small desk with a presidential seal affixed to it so he could play at being president.
Unfortunately, in our far from perfect world Trump is the Leader of the Free World and he is busying himself signing executive orders with his tiny hands at his tiny desk, that are having a hugely adverse impact on our democracy.
We can only hope and pray that we live in a simulated reality, and that our alien programmers will introduce a Deus ex machina plot device whereby Trump finds himself in permanent time-out in the White House basement sitting at his tiny desk, and Mike Pence is sworn in as the new president.
