    He can't handle bad news, so his staff keeps it away from him.

    From what we know about the inner workings of the White House, Donald Trump sounds like a needy boss. He's reportedly moody, easily distracted, and needs to hear flattering stories about himself constantly.

    And the more we learn about this administration, the more coddled it turns out the president is. A new story out in Politico dives into Trump's obsession with his own polling numbers, and how, to keep him placated, his staff reportedly only supplies him with polls that make him look good. They do this two ways: by either leaning on polling by Rasmussen, a conservative group whose results are often heavily skewed in Trump's favor, or internal polling that looks exclusively at Trump supporters.
