During his victory speech, the President-elect was cordial and polite.
During his meeting with President Obama at the White House, the President-elect was cordial and polite.
This rational, sane, civil, and polite behavior of Drumpf-the-President-elect flew in the face of the behavior of Drumpf-as-candidate who was irrational, uncivil, and impolite (and, seriously, if I had to link to every instance of irrational, uncivil, and impolite behavior that I could find during his campaign, I would be here until 2020 so don’t expect those hyperlinks).
The question I have is when does “Campaign Mode” Drumpf come back?
When does the Donald J. Drumpf circa June 2015 to October 2016 resurface?
The answer was, “Yesterday.”
When things do not go Donald’s way, he is quite quick to blame others and the media seems to be a rich target for him.
So as protests against the President-elect around the country were happening, Drumpf took to Twitter and tweeted…
Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!
In a slam against people exercising their constitutional rights of free speech and assembly, Drumpf disparages them by calling them “paid”. Doubling down on his disdain for a free press (another constitutional right), Drumpf – without any proof offered – claims these protest were incited by the media.
Buckle up, folks, because this is how it is going to go until January of 2021. Things go poorly for Donald and the blame game and name-calling begins.
