Over the last several days, Americans have witnessed the President of the United States acting less like a leader and more like a reality television star than ever before. Turning his back on a country in need, Trump has been ignoring the people of Puerto Rico and the urgency of more effective gun control, opting instead to lash out at the media – specifically MSNBC.
This week, Trump was all over MSNBC for its “fake news” after the network reported that his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, had threatened to resign and referred to him as a “moron.” Trump has been trying to spin this in a way that shows he is the victim of a biased free press – but the real reason he’s obsessed with this particular story has just been addressed.
According to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Trump wasn’t even aware that Tillerson called him a moron until the story was released on NBC News. Then, chaos broke out in the White House. NBC reported:
Trump was furious when he saw the NBC News report, which was published shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday. For the next two hours the president fumed inside the White House, venting to Kelly, officials said.”
During that time, Trump was supposed to be getting ready for his Las Vegas trip so that he could meet the victims of the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States. But instead, he threw a temper tantrum because one of his top advisors called him a moron. You can watch Mitchell’s report of Trump’s unpresidential behavior below:
This is exactly why Trump needs to be removed from the White House. He is incapable of focusing on real issues and loses perspective every single time someone says the slightest negative thing about him. He is too emotionally unstable and thin-skinned for this job, and America is suffering for it.
