Trump Aides Say President Has Been 'Angry' And 'Bored'
Feel free to send my hate mail to Pennsylvania Avenue, Trump supporters, but this is #RealNews.
An alleged leak of information regarding President Donald Trump after the inauguration on January 20 has hit the web.
Since the inauguration of the 45th president, unsurprising details regarding Trump's behavior following the inauguration highlight the president was becoming "increasingly angry" after coming across reports indicating the crowd size at his swearing-in was laughable.
Of course, President Trump "handled" these claims by sending Press Secretary Sean Spicer out to confront the media.
In a newer report published by Politico titled "Trump Struggles to Shake His Erratic Campaign Habits," the president's aides admitted to having to privately "push back" against Trump's "worst impulses" at times.
What might those "impulses" be (besides sending your fuming press secretary out to give "alternative facts")?
The report states,
He gets bored and likes to watch TV, this person said, so it is important to minimize that.
While that seems rather harmless (I like TV, too), the president is said to use news coverage he sees on TV to "govern" and "make decisions." Yeah, that can't be a good strategy for our great nation, can it?!
We're talking about a man who reportedly became "visibly enraged" after seeing TV clips of mass protests around the world denouncing his presidency.
President Trump's current emotional state has been quite unpredictable following the inauguration, according to White House officials.
In a recent article published in the New York Times, it was reported,
Mr. Trump grew increasingly angry on Inauguration Day after reading a series of Twitter messages pointing out that the size of his inaugural crowd did not rival that of Mr. Obama's in 2009. But he spent his Friday night in a whirlwind of celebration and affirmation. When he awoke on Saturday morning, after his first night in the Executive Mansion, the glow was gone, several people close to him said, and the new president was filled a new with a sense of injury.
Now, I know what you're thinking: Who the hell would give up such damaging information exposing the president's struggle to accept the reality of his newfound presidency?
The Washington Post reports "nearly a dozen senior White House officials and other Trump advisers and confidants" spoke on these matters anonymously.
Further proving we may be doomed, presidential historian Douglas Brinkley spoke on the ongoing struggles Trump and his administration are facing in the inner-workings of their operation, telling Politico,
The truth of the matter is he had a successful inauguration with a respectful crowd. The transition of power went off without a hitch. His supporters were amiable by and large. But then he can never let go and stop watching cable TV. Now he's off to the worst start of a presidency in a very long time.
