Trump tweets out embarrassing photos in attempt to prove it was Pelosi who had meltdown, not him

President Trump’s afternoon meltdown continued on Twitter after behaving so poorly at a meeting with Congressional leaders that the Democratic delegation walked out.

Hours after disparaging Nancy Pelosi as a “third rate politician” to her face after she informed him that 354 members of Congress, including a huge swath of Republicans, had voted to condemn him over his decision to betray the Kurds and withdraw American troops from Syria, the President took to his favorite whining pulpit to post a series of photographs.

Donald Trump once again deployed his playground damage control techniques, arguing that it was “Nervous Nancy” who had had the meltdown, and not him.

The first tweet clearly was supposed to come across as proof that the Democrats pathologically hate Trump and that somehow proves everything negative said about him is a conspiracy, but honestly it just comes across as needy and sad. Donald Trump’s insatiable need for validation and approval is legendary at this point, and one can’t help but wonder if that’s what’s driving his frustrated outbursts.

Add your name to tell Congress to investigate Pence for his role in Trump’s Ukraine corruption. The VP is complicit!

The second picture is also a curious misfire, as it paints Nancy Pelosi as the alpha in the room, giving the president the what-for as Trump weakly sits back and complains with a petulant look on his face. The palpable embarrassment of the general sitting next to him is just the icing on the cake.

He’s gonna have to try a lot harder than this if he thinks he’s gonna be able to rewrite the narrative to make himself the hero of this embarrassing debacle.
