Who knew that a man who stands at 6’3 tall could have a Napoleon complex? Urban Dictionary defines Napoleon Complex as:
“A personality complex that consists of power trips and false machismo to make up for short height and feelings of inferiority.”
Since Trump is that tall, it must be his underdeveloped and inadequate inner Trump that drove him to cause his new White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, to give an impromptu press conference. Its stated purpose? To update the media on the latest White House actions, but then Spicer went on a 5-minute angry rant about the media’s portrayal of the attendance of his boss’ inauguration:

Could it be that Ivanka and Jared Kushner haven’t yet started their shifts at the White House? Had either one been on hand, surely, this presser would have been nixed? Making this a contest against America’s women is not only a losing proposition – scorned women always win – but it shows how truly inadequate a staff Trump has assembled for himself. Good advisers, including the press secretary, would have strongly cautioned against this kind of rant. If contradictory photos existed, the White House should have posted them on that empty White House website, and tweeted them out…
