Bully Kid

Captain’s Log    5,217

So Hillary has an 89% chance of winning this election.  In true Trump fashion, he continues to kick and scream and blame everybody but himself for this result.

This all reminds me of a kid I taught at a museum summer camp session some years ago.  We had a project to make a car out of rubber bands and a bottle.  The caveat was it had to actually “move” at least three feet.  The kids set to work.  One obnoxious boy (about 12) did absolutely nothing but band a few things together.  He tried to distract the other kids.  It was not fun.

I took the kids out to the staging area to run their cars.  Several museum docents were on hand to “judge” the competition.  The youngest kid built a car that went the farthest.  Obnoxious boy’s car didn’t even move.

When I handed out the trophies, the obnoxious kid actually said these words to me.  “I won.  I always win.  I need to win.  If you don’t give me first place, I will tell my mother!”  I told him he wasn’t going to win.  He looked me straight in the eye and said, “Fix it so I DO win!”

He was totally furious when he didn’t get the prize.  And he DID tell his mother.  And she DID ream my ass about how I “disgraced” her son in front of the class.  When I told her he didn’t fully participate, she looked at me and said, “So?  He’s the oldest.  He deserves the trophy!”

Thank goodness it was the last day of class and I never had to see those people again.  Every time Donald Cheeto-Face pulls his bully shit, I think of that kid.  I am thinking about that kid all the time now.  He is an adult by now and I wonder what kind of crap he is pulling with people…..thanks to his mother and whoever else was enabling him to be a jerk.

I cannot even imagine Donald Trump as a child.  It defies understanding.  I do think I encountered him in another form that day at the museum.  I held my ground with that little ass-wipe, and I will hold my ground with Trump now.  I will NOT stop until he loses the election.

Thank you.

    insane what the privileged will do to maintain their pedestal….
    Have you seen Michelle Obama’s speech in NH? I posted the link on my FB. Well worth 20 minutes

  2. Oh, I like Carol’s remark. I too agree that to get rid of Trump will be the better part of virtue for the year.

    was his name Donald?

  4. I feel speechless at the fact that there are people out there that behave this way. I would have wanted to tell the kid’s mom, “Stick around for a few minutes and I’ll see what I can do to disgrace you for raising such a bratty kid!”
