Presidential Tantrums


We have as our president a grown man — in fact, at 71, an elderly man — who behaves no differently than a spoiled five year old child. He wants what he wants when he wants it, and if he doesn’t get it, he throws a temper tantrum.

But because he is the President of the United States of America, his temper tantrums are very public. He is so prone to throwing tantrums that it’s an unusual day that passes without a presidential tantrum.

He throws tantrums on Twitter. He throws tantrums on “Fox & Friends.” He throws tantrums at his rallies and almost every time he opens his mouth.

The targets of his tantrums include the free press, cable news networks (except for Fox News), Democrats, Hollywood, Amazon and Jeff Bezos, late night comedians, Robert Mueller, Rob Rosenstein, Jim Comey, the Russia investigation, Kim Jong-Un (not so much lately, though), the FBI, the Justice Department, his handpicked Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and almost anyone who says anything critical about him.

So here we are, America. We have elected as our president the tantrum-in-chief who is almost singlehandedly, thanks to the virtually silent Republican majority in Congress, doing what Vladimir Putin has only dreamed about. Trump is destroying the American democracy from within and undermining America’s influence around the world.

Written for today’s one-word prompt, “tantrum.”

    Will America ever find the backbone to regulate their financial markets?

    But to Russia and the rest of the world much to your dismay we will have another election in 2 1/2 years, unlike you Mr. Putin, being the leader of America is not a lifetime appointment! All the collusion in the world will not stop term limitations… thank you George Washington!

      What makes you think, given his success in the 2016 elections without significant repercussions, that Putin won’t double down and put his finger on the scales of the midterms and on the 2020 elections?
