Trump is really like a gossipy, back-biting junior high school girl stereotype, isn't he?

Some complain of sexism in the OP. I don't quite agree with that claim, but I can sort of see the point behind it. So for now, I'll give the objectors the benefit of the doubt - assume it IS inappropriate to compare him to a junior high girl.

In this case, I'll compare him to a macho-intoxicated, social dominance showing-off-obsessed, junior high boy stereotype. Read: junior high male bully. He obviously thinks leadership is simply being the victor in insults, put-downs, trash talk, "doing the dozens", etc. That's the kind of thing I expect to see in prisons, criminal gangs, or at "classiest" the worst-behaved fraternities and sororities on campus. How the hell is it appropriate for even a city council member to act like this, let alone the POTUS?

Also, he's simply appealing to fear or disrespect of "the other" in order to boost his political power. An old trick of demagogues - appeal to stereotypes that may have a grain of truth, but ONLY a grain, ones that our reptilian brainstem latches onto without us having to put the hard work of thought into whether that first impulse actually is correct (as opposed to being an artifact of our pre-intelligence brainstem-dominated thinking). Then, when you get enough people so hot and bothered that they have an emotional investment in their view and thereby you win the election, pull your next move - stack your cabinet and court with people who won't give a damn about the people who voted you into office. That or else start a war or other kind of huge diplomatic crisis to distract their minds from your failures. Then the cycle starts again.

When his favorite whining points are:

"No collusion!"
"No obstruction!"

What is he seeking protection from, exactly?
He just wants others to agree to his lies, as he is used to apparently having others do for him, always. He's consistently defensive, among other things. If he has not had anything to hide or believes something is not true, why doesn't he just let it go instead of harping upon his innocence?

Of course, has not done anything he's been accused of in his entire life, according to him.

Trump uses twitter because he know the MSM will not report truth, and it allows him to control the topic of conversations.
He uses Twitter (unable to do anything else), to constantly defend himself, state untruths and complain about others. Not unlike when he collects others in a room who will act approvingly when he does the same. It's entirely doubtful that any other in a high office would function this way.

Then, he heads for his bedroom alone in the early evening to eat his cheeseburger in bed, watching three TVs, and calling ones he can complain to about all the injustices. This is his life. Talk about being maniacally obsessed. (Talk about this being like a teenage girl).

So manly, adult and presidential.

I find Obama quite manly... I mean, he has muscles and a deep voice. And doesn't whine.

Agree.. I see nothing manly, appealing or presidential about tRUMP. Ugh.


Yes, and Obama functions as a fully-developed, adult male, being a cool, collected and confident guy on top of it.

The OP is just here making a valid point, as many can, and several posters are here responding, day after day.

Ah, Hahahahaha.. it just says it all, doesn't it? (How can anyone feel he is appropriate in any way?)

Yeah, sadly, he had lots of money to hide behind, to sit around and pretend he was doing something, never experiencing what others actually working would
