This blog usually ignores this sort
of human interest story. But how can I resist this letter written by a third grader to Donald Trump?
Young Mr. Wheeless may be the most astute political commentator I've encountered so far this campaign season.
“How would you feel if people said some of these terrible things about
you that I have heard you say about them? I would like to know if you
would want your young children or grandchildren hearing the things that
you say about people? Do you ever feel sorry about the things that you
say that are hurtful to others? I have never heard you apologize.”
No you have not, Mr. Wheeless. Mr. Trump appears to be incapable of humility.
That is why he will lose.
But you know what scares me? This man's inability to say "I'm sorry" is also one of the reasons why he is so popular. Trump loves to play the role of Mr. Big Shot, because he understands that most Americans are just Little Shots: They will never be rich or important or powerful, and they know it. These people look at Trump and think: "If I had money, I'd be just like that guy.
I'd say whatever I pleased, to
anyone I pleased. And I wouldn't care what anyone thought of me."
Trump acts the bully because many Americans secretly like
But many others do not. And this, as I say, is why he shall lose.
