I’m sure headline writers are as tired trying to craft new ways to describe Donald Trump‘s bottomless anger as we are reading, seeing and hearing them, including:


Rage tweets

Flying into a self-pitying rage

Storms out

Flips out

Freaks out



Boosts insane conspiracy theory

Routinely humiliates

Fat shames his own supporter

Is unraveling

Explodes at

Curses more publicly

Snaps at

Melts down

Unleashes fury

Was apoplectic




Going crazy

Viciously attacks


Was pissed

Was furious

Lashes out

Was peeved

Goes off

Was red in the face and going off the rails

Had a hissy fit

Stamps his foot

Flies off the handle

Blows a gasket

Throws a fit

Throws a temper tantrum

Is losing his mind.
