Insecure Trump just lashed out about how Nancy Pelosi is being mean to him in whiny tweet

Yesterday wasn’t the best of days for Donald J. Trump.

First, he attended a meeting with Democratic leadership under the pretense that he wanted to discuss the massive infrastructure bill he has been promising since he was first elected. Rather than dig into the details of the legislation through, he demanded that all investigations into his administration immediately end, saying that negotiations could not proceed until his condition was met.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) refused, and Trump stormed out of the meeting like an angry child.

Almost immediately after his abrupt departure from the meeting, he arrived in the Rose Garden for a clearly preplanned press conference in which he raged against the Democrats and the Muller investigation, making himself look incredibly guilty in the process. He followed that up with a fuming tweetstorm.

Nancy Pelosi used the president’s behavior to strike a humiliating blow against him:

“Sadly, the only job the President seems to be concerned with is his own. He threatened to stop working with Democrats on all legislation unless we end oversight of his Administration and he had a temper tantrum for us all to see,” said Pelosi.

Later, Trump ran back to Twitter to whine that Pelosi saying he threw “temper tantrum” was not true. He insisted that he was purposely very polite and calm, which is something he has proven time and again he is temperamentally incapable of being. Clearly, the negative coverage of his tawdry performance has gotten under his skin.

He thought his Rose Garden stunt would play well for him, and instead, Pelosi’s flipped it back on him, painting him as a petulant manchild, stealing his thunder in the process.

This morning, Trump woke up and clearly still couldn’t get rid of the bad taste in his mouth from yesterday’s events. He took to Twitter to insist yet again that he was “extremely calm” yesterday when he met with Pelosi and Schumer.

The president added that Democratic leadership was going to accuse him of “raging” no matter what he did and that the “Fake News Media” would help them sell that impression. This claim is without merit, as Pelosi and Schumer are not in the habit of accusing Trump of lashing out when he doesn’t. They’re always measured in their criticisms, saving words like “tantrum” for when Trump actually deserves it.

At this point, just about everyone not on the MAGA train knows that the president has an anger issue. His constant Twitter meltdowns are a testament to that. Pelosi’s decision to call him out this time, and him subsequently being unable to stop talking about her comments, shows she knows exactly how to get inside his head. Once again, she’s proven herself an incredibly capable Speaker of the House for the Trump era.
