Trump is in a ‘dark mood’ and ‘pissed at damn near everyone’ — including Melania: White House official

Published

A White House official who spoke with CNN relayed the president’s latest mood amid potential staffing shakeups — and the outlook is grim.

Host Jake Tapper noted that aides described “a darker than normal cloud hovering over the Oval Office.”

“He’s pissed at damn near everyone,” one White House official told CNN.

Tapper added that the network learned that the president’s “intense and bitter mood” appeared to escalate after Republican losses in last week’s midterm elections.

The host also noted that a source told White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins that Trump “was furious” that First Lady Melania Trump issued a rare public statement condemning a national security adviser prior to that adviser’s ouster.

That move, Tapper said, made Trump worry he looked like “a bossed around husband.”

“President Trump is growing more isolated by the day,” Collins said. “Trump has been in a dark mood since he returned from Paris, berating aides over a decision to cancel a planned visit to a military cemetery due to the rain.”

‘Irony and Outrage’: How different — and how similar — are Samantha Bee and Fox News?

Published

on

Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly are masters of outrage — not just the emotion, but a genre of political theater — just as Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are masters of ironic satire. They’re poles apart, and yet — ironically or outrageously — they’re profoundly similar, both in how they’re impacting their audiences, and why their genres emerged when they did. That’s perhaps the central thesis of “Irony and Outrage: The Polarized Landscape of Rage, Fear, and Laughter in the United States,” by Dannagal Goldthwaite Young, who’s both a professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Delaware and an improv comedian with the troupe ComedySportz Philadelphia. That’s among the many different hats she wears.
