You’ve probably noticed that President Donald Trump is fond of attacking anyone who disagrees with him or dares to issue any criticism or him or his policies. Here’s an example of some of the things Trump has said:
- During a presidential debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump called his opponent a “nasty woman.”
- He said Mexican immigrants are rapists and drug dealers.
- Trump declared that Senator John McCain (R-AZ) wasn’t a war hero because he had been captured.
And yet, the one person Trump refuses to say anything negative about is Russian leader Vladimir Putin, a man who has ordered the assassination of reporters and political enemies, invaded his neighbors, and interfered in the 2016 American election. That fact wasn’t lost on Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who commented that Trump “is more loyal to President Putin than to our NATO allies.”
Asked about that comment on Fox News Thursday morning, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway nearly had an on-air conniption fit, telling host Ainsley Earhardt:
“That’s a disgraceful comment by the minority leaders in the House and the Senate. Because they’re always making everything so political and so personal.”
Yes, heaven forbid anyone should make anything political or personal the way Donald Trump constantly does. Trump’s default position is always to blame others; nothing is ever his fault. He usually aims his attacks at former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Congressional Democrats. And his comments are nearly always personal and petty.
Recently, when Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) suggested that people confront members of the Trump administration in public and tell them how they feel about what their boss is doing to the country. In response, Trump suggested Waters was stupid and issued a threat:
Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

In other words, Trump and his surrogates sure can dish it out, but they can’t take it. What a bunch of delicate snowflakes they are.
