The New Yorker: “What was really memorable about the event, though, was Trump’s response. Seated a few tables away from us magazine scribes, Trump’s humiliation was as absolute, and as visible, as any I have ever seen: his head set in place, like a man in a pillory, he barely moved or altered his expression as wave after wave of laughter struck him. There was not a trace of feigning good humor about him, not an ounce of the normal politician’s, or American regular guy’s “Hey, good one on me!” attitude—that thick-skinned cheerfulness that almost all American public people learn, however painfully, to cultivate. No head bobbing or hand-clapping or chin-shaking or sheepish grinning—he sat perfectly still, chin tight, in locked, unmovable rage. If he had not just embarked on so ugly an exercise in pure racism, one might almost have felt sorry for him.”
I feel like this is behind Donald Trump’s 2016 Presidential ambitions. President Obama put him in his rightful place that night in 2011 and Trump didn’t learn a thing. He’s trying to prove he is more than a bully businessman. He wants to be known as a serious person, but more importantly he wants the most powerful job in the world.
It is pretty obvious he is making a mockery of the United States with his bluster and is not a serious person. He lives at the center of a one man universe; TrumpWorld, where he is king and all of us peons live to serve him.
He’s definitely not Presidential material.
