Pathetic "Little" Trump

​On Tuesday, POTUS Trump said the following to a blonde-haired female media member:
"We have all this beautiful Irish press here.  Where are you from? (Caitriona Perry, RTE News) Caitriona Perry, she has a nice smile on her face. I bet she treats you well."
On Thursday POTUS Trump tweeted the following about a blonde-haired female media member:
"Then how come Crazy Mika came to Mar-A-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year"s Eve, and insisted on joining me.  She was bleeding badly from a face-lift.  I said no."
On October 12 of last year, Newt Gingrich said the following of Donald Trump:
"Look, first of all, let me just say about Trump, who I admire and I've tried to help as much as I can.  There's a big Trump and a little Trump.  The little Trump is frankly pathetic."
Anyone still arguing with what Newt said on October 12th?
   Look, what is so shocking about the now famous Mika tweet is this-- there is a list of women that Trump has insulted based on their appearance: Carly Florina (look at that face, would you vote for that?), Heidi Cruz (a picture is worth a thousand words), Megan Kelly (bleeding from wherever), Alicia Machado (Miss Piggy), Angelina Jolie (I understand beauty, and she's not), Katarina Witt(bad complexion, built like a linebacker)... shall I continue?  The question is, WHY would he want to add to that list? What possible good comes from it?  I know several women, my wife included, who walked away from Trump after the Megyn Kelly comments.  God forbid any of those women were thinking of giving him another shot, BAM, he took that away by being even more offensive to Mika. (My wife likes neither Megyn nor Mika as tv people by the way.)  And as my wife put it, after several expletives, "oh, and he tweeted that because why, he's against plastic surgery?  Plastic surgery is everything he stands for -- do anything and everything you can to stay young and attractive."  How could I argue with her?
   I defended his interaction with the Irish reporter as innocent fun, but I cannot defend the Mika tweet.  It was certainly not innocent, and it was anything but fun.  What it was was foolish, small, and unnecessary.  What it was was classic Little Trump, which as Newt so eloquently put it back in October, "is frankly pathetic".

More wisdom next week.​
