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.
