The American people deserve far better than a President who disengages immediately upon perceiving he, or she, is being treated unfairly.
Trump’s decision to boycott the Fox GOP debate this Thursday night because the network refuses to remove Megyn Kelly as one of the moderators – Trump thinks she treats him unfairly – is more of the same evidence we’ve been seeing since the beginning of this reality show, sorry, I mean, political campaign (I get confused sometimes), that Trump is unfit for the presidency.
Trump thinks Kelly treats him unfairly? Welcome to life, Donald.
This is not the schoolyard where a child who doesn’t like the way another child is playing with her can say, “My mommy says I don’t have to play with you anymore.” We are talking the presidency of the United States – arguably, the most powerful position in the World. And if the GOP front runner (man, that makes me queasy just to write) doesn’t like the way he is being treated by Megyn Kelly, wait until he sits down with World leaders or members of Congress who oppose him.
What, is he going to just get up from the table and storm out of the room like a petulant child, slamming the door on his way out, simply because he thinks one of them treats him unfairly?
The Trump campaign’s press release, quite possibly written by Trump himself because it uses complex words such as “incredible” to describe himself and “stupid” to describe others, states that Trump’s decision to boycott the debate is analogous to a business man’s decision to end an unfavorable negotiation. And while Trump is undoubtedly a good business man, or perhaps, more appropriately, crony capitalist, the qualities that make him a good business man will not make him a good President.
Wake up America. It’s time for this nightmare to end.
