Default Trump throws tantrums when confronted with truth

I've heard some of the excerpts before. Also we have all heard rumors before
Now the boss journalist with complete source material and tapes says this recently:


Quote:
President Donald Trump is fundamentally incapable of facing reality — and throws tantrums to avoid the truth.
Quote:
The journalist and author said much of the best reporting on Trump’s presidency has focused on the Russia investigation, but Woodward said he uncovered a troubling pattern in all of the president’s failures.
Quote:
“In the foreign policy areas, the handling of North Korea, Afghanistan, the Middle East, all of the immigration issues, all of the trade issues, I was able to excavate and find out actually what happened,” Woodward said. “This is the pattern — he won’t face what’s real.”

Woodward had written books on nine presidents from Richard Nixon to Trump, and he said each one is different, but he said the current president has a defining characteristic.

“I think the key in examining Trump is actually what will he do when people present him with facts?” he said. “For instance, it sounds a little esoteric, but the World Trade Organization, which the United States is a member of — very important, allows us to file complaints of unfair trade practices — and there’s a meeting in the Oval Office and the president says, ‘Well, the World Trade Organization is the worst organization ever. We lose all of our cases.'”

Trump’s advisers presented him with data that showed the U.S., in fact, won 85.7 percent of the cases it brought before the organization, and he simply rejected their data.

“He says, ‘No, that’s not true,’ and the people are saying, ‘Look, call the U.S. trade representative, your guy, and he will confirm this,'” Woodward said.

Woodward said the president simply refused.

“‘I don’t want to hear it,'” Trump said, according to Woodward. “‘I don’t want to call him, I don’t want to deal with it.'”

The president flat-our rejects information that challenges his biases and beliefs, the reporter said.
“At some point, he gets literally where the aides ask him, ‘Where did you get these ideas?'” Woodward said. “And he will say, ‘Well, I’ve had them for 30 years, they’re right and if you disagree, you’re wrong.'”

And that, ladies and gentlemen is so like many of his supporters.

I don't know about the details of this report, but based on his public interviews, I've seen Trump hold his ground on bad info, but at times be swayed a bit by those he respects for the moment.
he's not someone how lets facts get in the way of his CURRENT opinions.

While I don't doubt that he will dig his heels in on something he disagrees with, and be stubborn about it, I have to laugh that they call this a tantrum. Oh, the drama, the hyperbole, the unadulterated emotional kneejerk!

Dude's having a meltdown right now, denying the death toll from Hurricane Maria and alleging without evidence that the numbers were faked by Democrats in order to make him look bad.
