In just a few short days President-elect Donald Trump will unfortunately be one of the most powerful individuals in the U.S and he is nowhere near ready to hold that position. He has no boundaries, has foolish reactions to criticism, and gets joy out of belittling others. For example, when Alec Baldwin impersonated Trump on NBC’s Saturday Night Live Trump reacted poorly by depreciating a comical show that has impersonated people for years. Trump angrily tweeted:
‘NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really Bad Television!’

When asked what was needed in order to be a great and successful president, President Barack Obama didn’t hesitate to nonchalantly target Trump. Obama had an impeccable response for the question. The two-term president was labeled as “No Drama Obama.” On 60 Minutes Obama told the host Steve Kroft that thick skin is a necessity to be effective as president :
‘Stamina. There is a greater physical element to this job than you would think, just being able to grind it out. And I think your ability to– not just mentally and emotionally but physically be able to say, “We got this. We’re going to be okay.”
‘One of the things I’m proud about is that I think my basic character and outlook actually have not changed much. And– and people who are closest to me will tell you that– the guy who came here is the same guy who’s leaving.’
Trump doesn’t have thick skin at all. He gets offended over minute things and lashes out because he doesn’t have a sense of humor.
Sadly, we are headed into the last days of Obama as our leader. Although it’s likely impossible, we need a miracle so that Trump can take in Obama’s calm and collected approach on things.There is very little hope left that entering the office of presidency will allow Trump to become more modest and learn to show respect for his position as the President of the United States and all of the Americans that he will soon symbolize.
