Everything is closing in on Donald Trump, and he’s so rattled, he’s taking out his frustrations on the handful of people who are still firmly in his corner. If you’re looking for evidence, look no further than the fact that Trump is relying on Mick Mulvaney so thoroughly, he’s got Mulvaney doing multiple jobs at once – yet Trump is treating Mulvaney more poorly than just about anyone.
During a recent meeting with the Democrats, Mick Mulvaney was trying to negotiate a compromise over border wall funding. Donald Trump didn’t like how Mulvaney was going about it, so he yelled “You just f*cked it all up, Mick.” This is according to multiple inside sources who were in the meeting, and who relayed it to Axios. So why does this matter?
It would be one thing if Donald Trump were profanely abusing Mick Mulvaney in private. But in this instance Trump cursed out Mulvaney in front of the opposition party, humiliating him in the process. You won’t find any fans of Mulvaney around here, and you could perhaps argue that he knew what he was signing up for when he agreed to become acting Chief of Staff for an unstable monster like Donald Trump. But there’s a larger point here.
Donald Trump, simply put, is cracking under the pressure. He’s spiraling out of control so badly, he’s taking it out on his own people for all to see. Trump is also apparently too far gone to understand, or perhaps care, that something like this was obviously going to leak out publicly. The theory has always been that Trump can simply find more people to do his bidding after he runs them off. But he’s nearly run out of people, and now he’s making it very difficult for his remaining people to remain on the job. Trump is unraveling in real time, by the hour.
