Donald Trump is threatened at each and every criticism. He is paranoid, narcissistic and self-aggrandizing. He deals with criticism like a typical third grader, with juvenile name-calling and other forms of retaliation. He cannot seem to help himself from lashing out at critics, time after time, with vitriolic attacks spiced with accusations of conspiracy.
One popular saying attributed to Harry Truman is: “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” It is obvious that Trump cannot stand any measure of heat without the need to strike back.
But the heat of the campaign is lukewarm compared to what is felt when sitting in the Oval Office. His reaction to the Khan family asking about you “sacrifice” was unbelievable and unforgivable. He doesn’t understand what he says is difficult to retract. He fails to even recognize the malice of his words. His presidency would be an unfathomable disaster. He needs to get out of the kitchen.
