Sen. Chuck Schumer mocked President Trump's first full cabinet meeting in a video he posted on Twitter.
The video tweeted out Monday featured Schumer sitting around a table with his staffers, who took turns complimenting the New York Democrat.
"Your tone was perfect. You were right on message," one female staffer told him.
"Michelle, how'd my hair look coming out of the gym this morning?" asked Schumer, who has been one of Trump's loudest critics.
"You have great hair. Nobody has better hair than you," she responded.
"Thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve your agenda," a male staffer interrupted, mocking comments by White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to Trump earlier in the day.
"That's great," Schumer said, cracking up as staffers joined in the laughter.

The White House was called out by the left and by some Democrats for the cabinet meeting, in which members of the administration took turns praising Trump.
"On behalf of the entire senior staff around you, Mr. President, we thank you for the opportunity and the blessing that you've given us to serve your agenda and the American people," Priebus said.
