What Happens When…?
What happens when the president of the United States is so thin-skinned that he can’t stand criticism and so vindictive that he viciously attacks anyone who criticizes him? Megyn Kelly found out. After leading a presidential debate where Trump felt unjustly treated, she was so viciously attacked by Trump and his team that she feared for her safety. This does not bode well for a critical press, which Trump describes as “skum.” Given this, how well he is suited to run a country where opposing views are the basis of a democracy. Add to thin-skinned and vindictive we have Trump’s lack of contact with reality, such that he added 3 million illegal votes to explain why Clinton beat him in the direct vote. Thus we have a president who lives in a mental bunker from which he fires off vindictive tweets to attack any reality out of touch with his vision of it. As to the question “What happen when…?”, all we can do is wait another twelve day to find out. But we can probably expect the worst.
