From what you've written, your father sounds incredibly irrational, mentally unstable and with a hair trigger temper to boot. This does not sound like a simple case of poor anger management. I think he needs to be on medication, he sounds Bipolar.
Bipolar is different from this, if he has an inflated self-esteem, less need of sleep, talks compulsively, is easily distracted and/or is agitated THEN he is bipolar. He is just very bad at dealing with anger.

Don't try to defend yourself, you'll just fuel the argument. No matter what, you won't win.
You can't reason with a mentally unstable, stubbornly irrational person who refuses to see reason. It'd just be a exercise in futility.
I think it could be safer to stay put and just listen. He could get mad and go after her if she tries to walk away.
