On Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump sent yet another flurry of defensive tweets, this time bashing the New York Times.

It was not immediately clear which story in the New York Times set Trump off. The Times published a story Tuesday about the role Vice President Mike Pence played during the failed attempt by the White House and House Republican leaders to garner enough support to pass an Obamacare repeal bill.

The Times described Pence as a “wingman for a president short on competent help” and said that he has taken over certain tasks from Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. The NYT reported:

Mr. Pence’s team has at times questioned whether Mr. Priebus was up to the demands of his job, according to one West Wing official close to the vice president, who was not authorized to discuss private interactions involving Mr. Pence. And Mr. Trump has made his own unhappiness known with Mr. Priebus, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee.
