When I was a child, I saw lots of bullying. It was all around me. And perhaps, like some of you, I didn’t understand it. Many people told me it was just child’s play. Adults don’t act like that, I was told. Eagerly I waited to become an adult.

Except tragically, adults DO bully. How many times have we seen it? Perhaps previous generations of adults were kinder. But in the here and now, bullying is pervasive, not just for children. And the biggest bully is one of our former “Presidents,” Donald J. Trump.

Trump is perhaps the epitome of a bully, the ultimate bully. Bullies are by and large weak human beings who are cowards at heart. They derive satisfaction from pushing others down in an attempt to pull themselves up. They seek joy in the pain of others. They live to disrespect and disrespect to live. It is all they have. Their cores are vacant.

And to hear about the bullying tactics Trump used — on everybody — but especially Pence — was infuriating but oh so very predictable.

Trump is an empty canvas. He lacks deep emotions. Trump can’t love or be loved. He is the baby in the kitchen, pleading for just one more cookie and throwing a demented temper tantrum when he doesn’t get it.

Wimp is what he called Pence. P###Y is what he reportedly called Pence. But Donald Trump is the biggest wimp of them all. He lacks any feasible good quality that I can think of. Can you think of one redeeming trait of value that Mr. Trump has?

Is he kind? No. Is he honest? Nope. Does he love, empathizes, or feels compassion? No way. What we have here — with Trump is a giant man-baby-bully. Trump will always be alone. We all talk of wanting to see him in jail. Never have I been so sure he will be than now. But you see,he is already in jail to a degree.


Trump screams alone. He rages alone. He hates alone. His inner core has no sunlight and leaves no room for the tender ministrations of love. He is in a prison of loneliness from which there can never be any escape. He is in darkness, and it is in darkness, he will always stay.
