"Let's just deal with this real quick. We know it's how he operates: Attack, troll, mock, bully and indignantly complain other people are bullying him," Melber noted. He then welcomed Res to discuss what is happening in Trump's brain.

He asked Res if anything could become an important issue to Trump if it wounds him enough. "Is he a snowflake?"
