It has long been said that Donald Trump displays the signs of someone in dire need of intense mental health treatment. From his narcissistic ways, to his propensity to believe and say things that are baseless and make no sense, Donald Trump’s behavior since his days on the campaign trail doesn’t often appear to be that of someone fit to run the United States.
Because of his pattern of unstable behavior, many people have been waiting for the day that Trump totally comes unglued and succumbs to the pressure of running the country, as well as the perils of his own ways. That day may have arrived.
The Associated Press reports that confirmation that he is under investigation and Trump finally coming to grips with that reality, are getting to him. White House staffers have disclosed that Trump has been yelling at televisions and clamoring on about being the victim conspiracies:

The AP added:
‘Trump advisers and confidants describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets in the White House carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy to discredit — and potentially end — his presidency. Some of his ire is aimed at Rosenstein and investigative special counsel Robert Mueller, both of whom the president believes are biased against him, associates say.’
Naturally, social media users had a field day responding to this news:
That’s absurd, Donald. TV’s can’t hear you. Yell into the microwave!

A few people pointed out that they tend to yell at the television when Trump comes on:
So what, I do the same damm thing every time #Trump is on my TV

To be fair, I tend to yell at the TV when 45 is speaking, so…

He joins the rest of us who have been yelling & crying at our tv & other devices from the day of the inauguration.

Another user validated yelling at TVs as normal, in the case of doing so when screaming at Trump:
Yeah, but that’s a symptom of sanity.

One person pointed out the irony of the privilege that comes with Trump’s behavior versus that of the average citizen:
Any other 71 yr old man does this we send him to an old folks home. This batshit crazy 71 yr old does it we give him the nuclear codes

All jokes aside, one person addressed how the the lack of confidentiality within Trump’s White House is a major issue:
Leaking @POTUS conduct not what advisors & confidants do. Houston, we’ve got .a problem.
— Maria (@heapingcoals) June 17, 2017
This person is right. The lack of respect that those closest to Trump repeatedly show by leaking some of his most embarrassing moments, is a terrible reflection on him as a leader, and surely the sign of larger problems.
