“There is nothing ‘stable’ or ‘genius’ about these public rants from a president,” Omar tweeted on Thursday night. “Deranged, bizarre, incoherent, sad … come to mind.”

Omar’s comments come after Trump lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for saying the president threw a “temper tantrum” at a White House meeting on Wednesday, where he reportedly shouted before storming out just minutes after it started.

Pelosi said that Trump is practically begging the Democrats to launch a “premature” impeachment so he can defuse the potential threat to his presidency. 

She also slammed the president on Twitter for his comments, saying, “When the ‘extremely stable genius’ starts acting more presidential, I’ll be happy to work with him on infrastructure, trade and other issues.”

Pelosi is pursuing an aggressive series of investigations into potential administrative wrongdoing. Those probes include examinations of Russia's 2016 election meddling, as well as looking at instances of potential obstruction of justice by Trump as outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

This isn’t the first time Trump has called himself a “stable genius.” In January 2018, Trump rejected reports suggesting the US president is not mentally fit for office, and calling himself “a very stable genius” and “like, really smart.”

Trump launched the remarkable defense of his mental stability in a series of tweets following the publication of Michael Wolff’s book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" about his first year in office which had revealed that "one hundred percent" of those around the US president consider him “moron, idiot.”
