On Wednesday, President Donald Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio railed against the president after he stormed onto the Rose Garden and bizarrely lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY.)
Trump stormed out of a meeting on infrastructure after Pelosi said that he was engaged in a “cover-up.”
“What does Trump erupting look like?” CNN’s Brooke Baldwin asked.
“I think the president erupting looks a little bit like what you saw in the Rose Garden,” D’Antonio said. “He is very easy to anger. I think he enjoys being furious. I think he enjoys scaring people. So when I think about Trump, I think of a man who rarely draws a sincere breath, but when he’s angry, he is generally sincere. Now, I believe this display was a planned tantrum.”
“Planned tantrum?” Baldwin emphasized.
“This is a very emotional display; this is a way of shaking things up. He wrote in the Art of the Deal that you have to be ready to walk out. He was probably looking for the opening to do this. And he got the opening, and he took it,” he continued.
D’Antonio then said that Pelosi will not back down and that she is not intimidated by Trump’s anger.
“And he enjoys venting that anger. I thought of a father who thinks he’s going to scare the family by shouting. And it does work. But only for a moment. And it mostly works with people who are immature and easily scared, and I’m not sure Nancy Pelosi falls into either one of those categories,” he said.

‘No comment’: Emails show the VA took no action to spare veterans from a harsh Trump immigration policy
The VA’s approach differs sharply from the Pentagon’s, which won an exemption for active-duty members of the military.
Top officials of the Department of Veterans Affairs declined to step in to try to exempt veterans and their families from a new immigration rule that would make it far easier to deny green cards to low-income immigrants, according to documents obtained by ProPublica under a Freedom of Information Act request.
Pilgrims gather for cosmic-like ritual in Bulgaria’s mountains
Thousands of pilgrims gathered Monday in Bulgaria's Rila mountains to welcome their "spiritual" new year with a cosmic-like dance performed in concentric circles, creating a striking image on the verdant mountain plain.
The white-clad dancers hiked up to Bulgaria's Seven Rila Lakes at an altitude of 2,100 metres (6,900 feet) and performed a special meditative dance known as "paneurhythmy" for more than an hour under the sound of singing and violins.
They are followers of the Universal White Brotherhood -- an esoteric society that combines Christianity and Indian mysticism and was founded by Bulgarian theologian Peter Deunov back in 1897 but banned during communism and still considered a sect by the country's Christian Orthodox Church.
NBA star Stephen Curry finances college golf team for six years
Three-time NBA champion Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors said Monday he will support the creation of Howard University's first top-level golf program for the next six years.
Curry, a six-time NBA All-Star guard and avid golfer, was inspired to make the contribution by Otis Ferguson IV, a senior at the Washington DC university who Curry met during a campus visit earlier this year.
Ferguson had been campaigning to establish a golf team at Howard. He found a backer in Curry, who decided establish men's and women's golf at the historically black college.
Two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Curry also persuaded golf equipment manufacturer Callaway to promise equipment and sport apparel giant Under Armour, who are one of his sponsors, to provide uniforms.
