'He threw a fit': Trump's anger over Iran deal forced aides to scramble for a compromise

Source: WP

President Trump was livid. Why, he asked his advisers in mid-July, should he go along with what he considered the failed Obama-era policy toward Iran and prop up an international nuclear deal he sees as disastrous?

-snip-

“He threw a fit,” said one person familiar with the meeting. “. . .He was furious. Really furious. It’s clear he felt jammed,” said one person familiar with the meeting.

So White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster and other senior advisers came up with a plan — one aimed at accommodating Trump’s loathing of the Iran deal as “an embarrassment” without killing it outright.

-snip-

That effort — described by seven people familiar with the debate, most of whom insisted on anonymity to describe the confidential discussions — led to a revamping of the U.S. approach to Iran and the nuclear pact that Trump is set to announce this week and which Congressional leaders were briefed on Wednesday. Under the expected announcement, Trump will declare that the deal is not in the U.S. national interest while stopping short of recommending renewed nuclear sanctions.

1. Why are they catering to his BABY TANTRUMS?

He is supposed to be an adult and should be told to act like one. If he doesn't want to hear it , let people be fired, or resign, and see how he would like to run the fucking country by his goddamn self.

Nobody sane wants tRump left alone to stew in his anger unsupervised at the DayNightCare Facility (WH).

10. Hannity couldn't kiss Trump's ass....

because his head is so far up Trump's ass already, he's going to have to get it surgically removed at some point. I suppose Hannity could kiss Trump's prostate, or his colon, if he hasn't already.

Ugh, all this talk about Trump's gargantuan adipose ass is making me ill.

2. Why the f should we care that it is "what he considered a failed deal". This is

probably the dumbest piece of feces to ever hold the office of presidency. What he knows about world affairs is so little it is frightening and what is worse he seemingly has no desire to learn. All he wants to do is create crisis after crisis and feel like a big man. And everyone has to scurry around and try to placate him. It truly is "adult day care.
