Trump’s childishness shines by means of in an excerpt from the soon-to-be launched guide by authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa detailing the then-President’s makes an attempt to persuade then-Vice President Mike Pence into overturning the 2020 election.
“When Pence didn’t budge, Trump turned on him.
“‘No, no, no!’ Trump shouted, based on the authors. ‘You do not perceive, Mike. You are able to do this. I do not need to be your good friend anymore for those who do not do that.'”
Begin right here: As an grownup, are you able to think about ANY circumstance in which you’d inform one other grownup “I do not need to be your good friend anymore”? Like, taking all of politics and the stakes out of this, and it is simply not the kind of factor a standard grownup would say to a different grownup.
And but, the President of the US did say precisely that to the vp of the US with the destiny of the 2020 election (and the broader well being of democracy) within the steadiness.
The reason being easy: Trump is deeply infantile.
Take into account it: He’s remarkably self-focused. He needs what he needs when he needs it. And when he would not get what he needs, he throws a mood tantrum.
His presidency is affected by proof of this conduct.
Or the entire nicknames Trump likes to bestow on his political opponents? (Is there something extra essentially un-adult then utilizing nicknames to deride individuals?) Or the tons of (hundreds?) of tweets put out by Trump each earlier than and through his presidency through which he attacked the seems to be or intelligence of somebody he did not like?
“Trump has by no means forgotten the lesson he discovered from his father and from his academics on the [military] academy: The world is a harmful place. It’s important to be able to struggle.”
Donald Trump, a person who led this nation for 4 years — and who seems to be planning to run once more for the presidency in 2024 — is caught in his childhood. Scary.
