Trump just threw a furious tantrum over reports he threw a furious tantrum in yesterday’s shutdown meeting

Yesterday, the president who has touted himself as a “dealmaker” for years met with Democratic leadership to discuss the federal shutdown. As they so often do with Donald Trump, things quickly went off the rails and he stormed out of the room in a huff after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) restated their opposition to funding his border wall. As he often does, Trump immediately ran to Twitter to whine like a child in timeout.

Pelosi and Schumer addressed reporters around the same time, with the former getting in a great jab at Trump’s inability to relate to anyone who wasn’t handed hundreds of millions of dollars from his corrupt father. Schumer revealed that Trump slammed his hands against the table like a toddler before fleeing the meeting.

Now, it appears that the Democrats’ characterization of Trump has wormed beneath the president’s infamously thin skin because he took to Twitter this morning to address it in his daily tweetstorm. The tweet ended up essentially amounting to a tantrum about a tantrum.

He started by dusting off his pathetic nickname for Schumer, referring to him as “Cryin Chuck” and accused him of lying about the temper tantrum. Trump claims that he left the meeting because he knew the Democratic leaders would characterize his behavior as childish anyway. Given Trump’s long documented history of lying about just about everything, Schumer and Pelosi are obviously the far more reputable recounters of events here.

Trump ended the tweet by zeroing in on the specific claim that he slammed his hands against the table, a small detail but one which he evidently regrets, no doubt due to how negatively it’s playing out in the media coverage. Trump denied that he did such a thing and insisted he politely said “bye-bye” before leaving. At this point, one would have to be a fool to believe him.
