When the World is Led by a Child

This has been my year-long theme song and no one says it better than David Brooks.

At certain times Donald Trump has seemed like a budding authoritarian, a corrupt Nixon, a rabble-rousing populist or a big business corporatist.

But as Trump has settled into his White House role, he has given a series of long interviews, and when you study the transcripts it becomes clear that fundamentally he is none of these things.

At base, Trump is an infantalist. There are three tasks that most mature adults have sort of figured out by the time they hit 25. Trump has mastered none of them. Immaturity is becoming the dominant note of his presidency, lack of self-control his leitmotif.

Keep reading--it gets better. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/15/o...fied-data.html

Which is why it is under the Op-Ed section.

Here's another op-ed by my favorite CBC blogger. The guy was the CBC's Washington correspondent for years and is quite right leaning by CBC standards.

Never before has so much steaming hypocrisy occupied the White House: Neil Macdonald - CBC News | Opinion

It appears some here need to purchase pampers and sugar titties to help nurse the butt hurt.

Mr Trump, please keep screwing both the Democrats and Republicans to the fullest extent possible.

Mr Trump, if they scream it is unconstitutional do not listen, both parties have a great track record of ignoring or going around said Constitution.

Mr Trump, if they accuse you of lying....no worries, both parties lie.

Give 'em hell Mr Man-child Trump. Anything is better than the progressive world view, government, policy.

I've just become a Neil MacDonald follower. What a delight....the only disagreement would be with Neil's Jabba the Hutt characterization. 1) Trump in nothing but a silver bikini. I'm spitting up. 2) Trump with a chain around his neck. Who took a bolt cutter to the chain?? Find and punish them.

Feel free to challenge the logic and/or reasonableness of any of those "opinions." Please proceed.

What's a sugar-tittie?

BTW, what EXACTLY is it you're whining about?
