Watch Trump freak out at his chief of staff for coughing during ABC interview

2 min read

Donald Trump is a well-known germophobe and petulant child.

Both traits are on display in this clip, in which he excoriates his chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, for coughing during the pr*sident’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. 


And here’s the transcript. It’s interesting that the craziest part of this segment is the coughing thing, not that Trump says he “hopes” Congress gets the financial information that he’s been desperately trying to prevent them from seeing.


So who wants to sign up to attend a Trump campaign event and hand him a series of increasingly sick babies? Is whooping cough still a thing? Because that would be the coup de grâce. Then again, would the sight of Trump growing livid at the presence of an infant really be more off-putting than his mocking a disabled reporter?
