Trump won the election, and now he has to deal with people actually paying attention to what he says and does (seems a bit late, but hey we’re doing it now!).
Ryan Pizza at the New Yorker examines Trump’s first week as President-Elect and it ain’t pretty. This passage stuck out to me as being particularly unpresidential (though I suppose we’ll have to change what that means after the Trump presidency):
On Saturday, Trump made no appearances and no public statements, save for a single tweet in the morning: “This will prove to be a great time in the lives of ALL Americans. We will unite and we will win, win, win!”
On Sunday, Trump woke up and attacked the press:
9:16 a.m.: Wow, the @nytimes is losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the “Trump phenomena”
9:43 a.m.: The @nytimes sent a letter to their subscribers apologizing for their BAD coverage of me. I wonder if it will change – doubt it?
11:03 a.m. The @nytimes states today that DJT believes “more countries should acquire nuclear weapons.” How dishonest are they. I never said this!
