Trump has always been a bull in a China shop, careless beyond all measure. But his China shop was a closely contained space within which he somehow managed to control all perception as to what really went on inside. Now as president he has ventured into an open space where he has little to no ability to control what goes on around him, both real or perceived, and he is furious because he is vulnerable as never before.
