The Child who will be president

Trump continues his childish Twitter bashfest against the New York Times. This time, it's over the Grey Lady's article on the confused state of the Trumpian Transition Team.

Trump tirade re-ignites

And ... a related opinion piece from Wapo.

This time may be different. Trump was not a normal candidate, the transition is not a normal transition, and this will probably not be a normal administration. The president-elect is surrounding himself with mediocrities whose chief qualification seems to be unquestioning loyalty. He gets credit for becoming a statesman when he says something any newly elected president might say (“I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future”) — and then reverts to tweeting against demonstrators and the New York Times. By all accounts, his ignorance, and that of his entourage, about the executive branch is fathomless. It’s not even clear that he accepts that he should live in the White House rather than in his gilt-smeared penthouse in New York.

Yep.

We have a child about to enter the Oval Office. A mediocre, ignorant child, surrounded by sycophantic mediocrities.
