We survived Trump’s first year. Now I wonder how we will fare during his terrible twos phase.

The terrible twos. A description usually reserved for the behavior of babies becoming mobile and aware of their power(s) over the adults around them. Screaming, ranting, throwing tantrums, pouting, babbling. Dismantling the order of traditional home life,leaving behind a path littered with toys, rattles and sleep deprived parents.

Its a sad day when you can no longer distinguish between the out of control toddler in the playpen and the guy in the white house. Even sadder when that toddler hits puberty!

The spoiled big boy who became president, committed to endorsing harassers, applauding violence and infecting the country with a rare form of the DTs (delirium tremens) that isn’t alcohol induced.

The big kid in the white house who made bullying popular.

Watching Donald Trump in action is like watching a really bad horror movie in which we learn that Peter Pan was actually Captain Hook’s inner child!
