It is amazing how many people have been oblivious to a middle-aged man’s spoiled-brat behavior, his childish boastfulness about things he says he is going to do and his petulant response to every criticism with ad hominem replies.
Donald Trump has boasted that his followers would stick by him even if he committed murder. But is that something to boast about? Is it not an insult to his followers, if it is true? Moreover, his cockiness is misplaced, because he still does not have a majority among Republican voters, while you need a majority of all the voters to win any state in the general election.
Trump has a showman’s talent for telling people what they want to hear. But you can listen in vain for a coherent argument from him, based on facts and logic, much less an understanding of the inherent limitations of the office of president.
The issue that Trump raised about Ted Cruz’s having been born in Canada is not the first time he has tried to challenge where someone was born. A lot of people need to grow up, and Trump is one of them.
