Trump: Liar and Bully

This arrogant, ignorant fool is soon to be our Fearless Leader.

About a year ago, 18-year-old college student Lauren Batchelder stood up at a political forum in New Hampshire and told Donald Trump that she didn’t think he was “a friend to women.”

The next morning, Trump fired back on Twitter — calling Batchelder an “arrogant young woman” and accusing her of being a “plant” from a rival campaign. Her phone began ringing with callers leaving threatening messages that were often sexual in nature. Her Facebook and email inboxes filled with similar messages. As her addresses circulated on social media and her photo flashed on the news, she fled home to hide.

“I didn’t really know what anyone was going to do,” said Batchelder, now 19, who has never discussed her experience with a reporter until now. “He was only going to tweet about it and that was it, but I didn’t really know what his supporters were going to do, and that to me was the scariest part.”

This is what happens when Trump targets a private citizen who publicly challenges him.

He seems to do best beating up on those who have no defense.

How's that going to work for him - and us - when he starts this nonsense over Iran or North Korea.

"With one tweet, Trump can change headlines on cable news, move financial markets or cause world leaders to worry. With one tweet last week, Trump inflamed a conflict with China. With another tweet on Tuesday, Trump caused Boeing stock to plummet. With a third on Wednesday night, Trump prompted a series of threatening calls to the home of a union leader who had called him a liar."
Chuck Jones is the Unionista who called Trump out over Trump's lies about the Carrier deal. Trump responded with his usual insults and innuendo; his followers lapped it up like so much left over Obamanian Kool-Aid, and the next thing Jones knew, he was receiving those threatening phone calls from Trump's Sturmabteilung. We can only wonder if Trump is going to pay for their legal defense in the unlikely event they are ever charged. After all, they have the encouragement and protection of the president-elect.

Well ... Trump *is* a liar. We saw that time and time again during the campaign. We have videos of him lying. We have videos of him inciting his followers to violence. And then lying about it.

Trump didn't like Boeing CEO Dennis Muelinberg's comments about free trade; next thing we see is the now infamous - and grossly incorrect - TrumpTweet about the new Boeing aircraft for Air Force One.

“I think I am very restrained, and I talk about important things,” Trump said
during an interview with the “Today” show this week. “Frankly, it’s a modern-day form of communication. . . . I get it out much faster than a press release. I get it out much more honestly than dealing with . . . dishonest reporters. So many reporters are dishonest.”

Trump thinks he is 'restrained?' That's like saying Jesus spent Good Friday hanging around watching a craps game among some Roman soldiers up yonder on Calvary hill.

And now we have a lying, dishonest bully about to be President.
