It occurred to me as I was writing about the perils of "Train Or Be Trained," with children, that Donald Trump is a whiner. "If I don't win, it's because they tricked us. It's mine. She stole it. I want it baaaack."
And maybe the reason he did so well initially is that so many of us are so well trained by our children. We hear whining, and knee-jerk, we do whatever it takes to Make It Stop.
Oh, God, please make him stop!
(It's okay. Don't worry. I have been de-whined myself and am immune.)
