Friday's New York Times report that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein feels used by President Donald Trump was mercilessly mocked online.
One person said he was “frantic, nervous, upset and emotionally dis-regulated [SIC]” while another told the Times that Rosenstein was “shaken,” “unsteady” and “overwhelmed.”
