Today, The New York Times printed a bunch of excerpts of things Donald Trump has said under oath in various courtrooms. Wow, is he a belligerent child. I’m not name calling, I’m just telling it like it is, which Trump should appreciate. I kind of specialize in belligerent children: I have a four-year-old who’s about as charming as Trump at the moment — but makes more sense.
Trump sells himself as a no-nonsense, straight talker. That’s code for “asshole” – in case you were wondering. He also seems to have serious issues with women. Take the way he addressed a female lawyer in a courtroom while being grilled about a failed Florida real estate project. The Times reports that Trump told the lawyer her questions were “very stupid.” That’s a nice way for a would-be presidential candidate to conduct himself in a court of law. It shows a hell of a lot of respect for our judicial system.
When the same lawyer asked for a medical break, Trump’s lawyers objected. The lawyer, Elizabeth Beck, explained that it was urgent because she had to pump milk for her three-month-old. She took the pump out of her bag to make a point. That’s when court documents claim Trump blurted out, “You’re disgusting.” The remark is not disputed by either side. He then walked out of the courtroom, according to the NYT story.
Is anyone surprised by this behavior? I doubt it. You need look no further than Trump’s own Twitter account to see what a complete and total hot-headed, reactionary person he is. Do we really want someone who behaves worse than our toddlers leading the free world?
STUPID POOPY HEADS!
TOLD YOU SO!
BULL! MAKE ME LAUGH, CLOWN.
Oh, look! A presidential candidate wishing millions of Americans employed by Macy’s will be out of a job because Macy’s hurt his feeewings.
STUPID HEAD, ANDERSON COOPER!
ONE FISH, TWO FISH. RED FISH, BLUE FISH.
The disrespect shown to that lawyer in that courtroom tells us all we need to know about Trump as a person. Someone who could direct that kind of vitriol toward a working mother is simply not a good guy. Trump thinks he’s above the law, and he has serious anger management issues. They clearly rub off on those he keeps in his inner circle, as evidenced by the threats recently hurled at a Daily Beast reporter by one of Trump’s lawyers:
“I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we’re in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don’t have. And I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know,” Cohen said. “So I’m warning you, tread very fucking lightly, because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting. You understand me?”
I don’t need a child bully running my country. I already have one of those running my household, thankyouverymuch.
