Internet laughs off press secretary's claims of presidential calm: 'How often has Trump struck you as 'measured'
Angry Donald Trump yells at reporters at the White House following Robert Mueller's testimony (screen grab)

President Donald Trump isn't exactly known for being calm or measured, but that's what his White House is claiming he was during a meeting with Democratic and Republican leaders.


".@realDonaldTrump was measured & decisive today. @SpeakerPelosi walking out was baffling but not surprising w NO intention of participating in a mtg on nat’l security. Dem “leadership” chose to storm out & whine to cameras, everyone else stayed to work on behalf of our country," tweeted Stephanie Grisham.

It prompted CNN's Chris Cillizza to inquire when Trump ever struck someone as "measured."

He certainly wasn't the only one. Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty harkened back to Trump's letter to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, which was certainly far from "measured."

The internet was reluctant to believe that Pelosi was the one who had a "meltdown" since that's what she accused Trump of first. Trump has a tendency to reply with comments about him by repeating the same thing. "No puppet, no puppet, you're the puppet," is a memorable example.

The president attempted to justify his take by posting a photo of Pelosi standing and counting off something on her fingers.
