New Delhi, November 18: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor shared new word-Tantrump with his fans on Twitter. The word means an outburst of anger, characterised by an inflated sense of entitlement, denial, narcissism, paranoia and victimhood. Further sharing on the microblogging site, he said, "I’ve been sending this around to friends for days before realising I didn’t put it on Twitter"
The cartoon shared is by John Cole. He makes political cartoons on North Carolina topics which appear weekly for NC Policy Watch.

The word is in context with US Presidential Elections where Joe Biden won. Donald Trump didn't accept his defeat gracefully and he hurled accusations of voting rigged to unsubstantiated claims of fraud in US vote as the reason for his defeat.

The Congress leader is known for sharing such witty and quirky words with his followers. Infact, Tharoorosaurus, a book by Tharoor, will be released in September. Tharoorosaurus will be published by famous publication house Penguin India. The title of Shashi Tharoor's book is apparently a combination of two words - Tharoor and Thesaurus.
