Donald Trump is many thing, but gentle-tempered is probably not one of them. On his Wednesday speech in a South Carolina ballroom AP photographer Mic Smith took a photo of the ballroom looking half empty with all the back chairs being unoccupied. That photo was used by news outlets like the NYTimes and businessinsider to suggest that Trump is losing traction.
The interesting news however is Trump’s reaction in an interview to the Dailymail. Trump was so upset with the photos that he claimed that “The photographer is a f***ing thief” and “Tell them they’re a fraud, whoever took it. I just got killed on that thing, and it was just really unfair. It’s godd**n unfair“. Mr. Trump also complained that “They all got out of their chairs and they ran to the front. And I look like a schmuck. If those people moved back into their chairs, the room was full. Totally full”
