His mood soured

Trump is surprised.

I guess even though all his advisers told him he mustn’t do what he did, he thought everyone would be overjoyed anyway? Because…[????]

President Donald Trump was upbeat immediately after his news conference with Vladimir Putin in Finland, but by the time he returned stateside on Monday evening, his mood had soured considerably amid sustained fury at hisĀ extraordinary embrace of the Russian leader.

Well, to be fair, I don’t give a flying fuck what his mood is, I want to know when he’s going to resign in disgrace.

He offered a defiant rebuke of his critics mid-Tuesday morning, writing on Twitter: “While I had a great meeting with NATO, raising vast amounts of money, I had an even better meeting with Vladimir Putin of Russia.”

“Sadly, it is not being reported that way – the Fake News is going Crazy!” he proclaimed.

Resignation. At once, please.

Trump’s self-defense, however, was unlikely to quell the uproar caused by Monday’s news conference.

The conservative editorial page of The Wall Street Journal declared the news conference “a personal and national embarrassment” for the President, asserting he’d “projected weakness.” Newt Gingrich, ordinarily a reliable voice of support, wrote on Twitter the remarks were “the most serious mistake of his presidency.”

Immediately after his news conference, Trump’s mood was buoyant, people familiar with the matter said. He walked off stage in Helsinki with little inkling his remarks would cause the firestorm they did, and was instead enthusiastic about what he felt was a successful summit.

How is that possible? How? It’s not as if he’s not aware of the Mueller investigation, to name just one clue that there would not be universal joy if he staged a lovefest with Vladimir Putin.

He watched the telebision news on the plane ride home and he was upset, poor babby.

He vented to Bill Shine and Stephen Miller, because that’s going to help a lot.

He’s going to vent to the rest of us at 2 p.m. DC time so about 40 minutes from now. We can predict what he’ll say – good to have good relations with Russia, he did everything all by himself with his heroic mightyness, fake news, but her emails, where oh where oh where is that server.
