Donald Trump- the emotionally inept candidate

Donald Trump goes on Russian TV to complain about the United States

Temperament requires a consistently professional response to the public, especially from a person striving to be elected a political leader. 

Unbelievably, sometimes Donald Trump doesn't even know where he is when he is talking (or preaching!). Apparently, he needs a "huge" sign on his podium to remind him where he's speaking because recently he spoke on the decks of the US aircraft carrier while he criticized the American military.  What was he thinking? Then, his political pollster, who unsuccessfully tries to be his "surrogate", restates what Donald Trump (aka "Mr. Trump"....oh paaleeeze!) has plainly said.

Donald Trump's campaign pollster Kellyanne Conway is like Cruella deVille because she's an ineffective surrogate who re-creates words like Cruella collected unfortunate Dalmatians.

Then, in another interview, Donald Trump and "Creulla deVille" Kellyanne Conway, his campaign cartoon pollster, said that Donald Trump didn't know the Larry King interview was being broadcast in Russia.  ?? Well, Cruella di Vil, you should have advised your client about where he was when he was interviewed by Larry King becasue, obviously, Donald Trump is unaware of his audience.
From the Daily Kos blog:

While sitting on the decks of the USS Intrepid, an aircraft carrier that survived the fury of World War II, Donald Trump maligned America’s military leadership but praised Russian strongman and dictator Vladimir Putin. 

But that was just an opening act.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized U.S. foreign policy and the American political press corps Thursday during an interview on RT America, a state-owned Russian television network.

Despite a compliant press that has provided Trump with millions in free air time and made certain that his campaign has been top of the news ever since he rode down a gold escalator, Trump had one central focus for his attacks on America.

Asked during the RT America interview what has surprised him most about the political process, Trump unloaded on the American press.

“Well, I think the dishonesty of the media. The media has been unbelievably dishonest,” Trump responded. “I mean they’ll take a statement that you make which is perfect and they’ll cut it up and chop it up and shorten it or lengthen it or do something with it.”

Incredulously, Donald Trump is an ungrateful person, among other disparaging personality characteristics. American can't elect Trump, who is rude, crude, unprofessional and demeaning to others, even to his media creators. Most important, Americans can't elect a leader who is critical of our US military while he is speaking on the decks of an American aircraft carrier where men lost their lives defending our nation- right there on the very decks where he sat during his interview with Matt Lauer.

You know what?  Russia's President Vladimir Putin, a man who once made it his profession to co-opt American spies, can have Donald Trump.  They deserve one another.

Nevertheless, as evil as the dictator and serial assassin Putin is, at least his responses to the public are consistent. Donald Trump, on the other hand, is emotionally inept.
