Baby Man!

Here’s a good theory about what is going on:

It is evident that Trump has poor control of his emotions. This makes some sense; he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and has had a life full of wives, business partners, employees, television co-stars, and the like kowtowing to him and to his moods. He’s never really been in a position where he needed to learn emotional control. Beyond that, Trump sees himself as being in competition with Barack Obama (see, for example, the debate over the inauguration crowd). Putting it all together, the sequence of events seems clear: Trump is angry right now, he was given negative information about Barack Obama (whom he resents), and he lashed out. In fact, given the hour at which these tweets generally issue forth, we may even be able to paint a more detailed picture: Trump retires for the evening in a sour mood, tosses and turns, and finally jumps out of bed and uses Twitter as a release.

    Where is Melania when you need her. Unfortunately the woman has great instincts and stays as far away from him as possible. Is there some way we can make her move to Washington? Maybe someone could start a twitter storm about their marriage being rocky. That she is seeing a divorce lawyer. Or seeing other men. Or seeing other women. Not only might it put his attention elsewhere for a short while, he might insist she move to Washington.

    I’ve been trying to think of another example of a billionaire, or even a lowly multi-millionaire, who wakes up in one of his gilded mansions, served breakfast on a silver platter by one of his private butlers, sits on his gold plated shittoir and tweets from his platinum edition phone pissing and moaning about always being the victim.

    Still coming up empty. Anyone?

    Some “pundits” think Trump is a brilliant strategist and his wiretapping tweets were meant to divert attention from sessions and russia. I think thats a stupid theory. If it was so brilliant then it also diverted everyone from the “trump is finally becoming presidential” angle and everyones now concerned again that the masses have voted in an emotionally unstable adult.

    The whole Trump is being presidential thing is amazing. All he did was to read a script from a teleprompter. He reverted to his tru egotistical self in a couple of days. People are willing to set such low standards if promises are made to cut regulation and lower taxes. Thats only the case for republican presidents. Democratic presidential candidates have incredibly high standards for trying to ensure that the economy doesn’t go down the toilet and everyone is treated fairly. How quickly people have forgotten the bush years of deregulation and low taxes.
