President Donald Trump continues to get offended that his political opponents dare question him, like we’re all just supposed to worship at his non-existent throne or something. This Thursday morning, he took to Twitter to rant yet again about a testy confrontation he had the day before with Congressional Democrats, and he’d like us to take his claim seriously that he was “extremely calm” in the meeting he stormed out of after three minutes the previous day and is still ranting about on social media a day later. Go figure.

Anyway, he railed:

‘I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing that they would say I was raging, which they always do, along with their partner, the Fake News Media. Well, so many stories about the meeting use the Rage narrative anyway – Fake & Corrupt Press!’

For Trump to just freely assert that Democratic leaders “always” say he was raging shows just how far down the rabbit hole of self-obsession he’s willing to go. It’s a blatant exaggeration at best, but he wants us to accept this as normal — despite the fact that it’s not as though there’s some lack of video evidence of the wake Trump left while angrily peeling around the White House on Wednesday.

The meeting that blew up was supposed to be about an infrastructure support deal between Republicans and Democrats, but the president walked in to meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) only for long enough to tell them he’d refuse to cooperate on any legislation at all while House Democratic attempts at oversight and investigation continue. Every detail makes Trump’s day and counting of ranting on social media and elsewhere that he’s really a very calm guy that much more outlandish.

The day before on Wednesday night, Trump had tweeted of his brief behind-the-scenes interactions with Pelosi and Schumer:

‘I was purposely very polite and calm, much as I was minutes later with the press in the Rose Garden. Can be easily proven. It is all such a lie!’

If angrily interrupting reporters over and over again and repeating the same debunked talking points about the supposed burden of the Russia investigation and his supposedly historically unprecedented cooperation yada yada yada is him being “very polite and calm,” America sure doesn’t want to see Trump’s “other side.”
