Donald Trump Is a Whiny Little Bitch

Bill Maher has been calling Donald Trump a "whiny little bitch" on his HBO show, Real Time with Bill Maher, for months now, almost from the time Trump won the Republican nomination for president. Maher was prescient because now everyone is calling Trump a “whiny little bitch,” ever since Trump realized he is losing and started proclaiming that the election is rigged.

Even President Obama had to call him out for his whining. During a press conference a reporter asked him about Trump’s claims that the election is rigged. Obama patiently explained that there is no evidence of this, and in fact, it would be next to impossible.* Then Obama told Trump to stop whining. He said:
“If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job, because there are times when things don’t go our way — or my way…. I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes.”
When Trump loses this election, as all the polls currently predict, it will be just one more failure in a long list of failures. He is not the genius businessman that so many think he is. Mark Cuban, a multi-billionaire who has been very successful in business, scoffs at the idea that Trump is a good businessman and he can back up his opinion with facts.

I started to think about why so many people think Trump is a good businessman. I think it is because he played one on TV. Trump’s reality show, The Apprentice, was very popular.

I only watched 1½ seasons and then I lost interest. 

The show wasn’t about providing challenging tasks to test the contestant’s mettle—it was about promoting Trump’s many business interests.
It wasn’t about selecting the contestant who demonstrated the greatest talent for business--it was about keeping the contestants that were ratings bait on the show as long as possible.
The point I want to make is that Trump played the great businessman on the show. The contestants idolized him (or pretended to idolize him) and called him a genius. Each week, the show would end with Trump sitting in the boardroom like a god and deciding who lived to fight another week and who “died” by being fired.

Anyone who watched that show year after year had to come away thinking Trump was a great businessman. He wasn’t. He only played one on TV.

Even if he was a great businessman, why do people think that being good at business equates to being good in government? Business and government operate in very different ways.

A CEO of a company issues commands and his underlings scurry to do his bidding. A president has to cajole and compromise with 538 members of Congress to get anything done.
A CEO of a company has only one objective-- to make a profit, preferably a really big one. A president must serve the 320 million citizens of the United States.
A CEO creates jobs by hiring people to work in his business. A president creates jobs through economic policy that creates a climate favorable to business. 
So many say That Trump will be honest as president because "he doesn't need the money." Do they understand that most people, and especially Trump, are very greedy. They never have enough money. Trump's history of fraud is more than evident as a businessman. He will be much worse as president.  

So if Trump is whining now, I can’t imagine how much whining he will do when he finds out being a CEO is very different from being a president.

I hope Trump keeps on whining. It doesn’t make him look like a winner; it makes him look weak, like a whiny…little… bitch.

P.S. Now he is whining that the third debate was rigged. He says Chris Wallace, a Fox News anchor, gave Clinton the debate questions in advance. Blatantly untrue. Another day, another whine. But he is getting nuttier everyday. and his gullible supporters believe every nutty thing he says. 

Post Election Post Script: Trump won, but he is still whining. He doesn't like that Clinton has 2.5 million more votes than he has so he is claiming there are millions of illegal votes. (Actually if Hillary had gotten a total of just 100,000 more votes in just three states she would have won the Electoral College too. 

Trump is also claiming he won the Electoral College in a landslide. He won 306 to 232 which is 56.9% of the Electoral College.This is not a landslide by historical standards. John Pitney, a professor of American Politics at Claremont McKenna College, put together a chart showing the Electoral College win for every president since George Washington--Trump ranked 46th out of 58 U.S. presidential elections.

Trump continues to whine. Alec Baldwin makes fun of him. A "so called Judge" (actually a Bush appointee confirmed 99 to 0) won't let him tear up the Constitution with his Muslim ban. He even whines because Nordstrom Department Stores dropped his daughter's fashion line because it was unprofitable for them. 

*I disagree that it is impossible to rig an election. If the election is close, it can be rigged. Only a relatively few votes in just one or two states can make the difference. Post Election Post Script: It looks like the election was rigged, by Republican operatives, and in Trump's favor. Exit polls are the most accurate polls. And even the exit polls showed a win for Hillary.

Some say it was rigged for John Kennedy in 1960. It might have been rigged In Ohio for George W. Bush when he ran against John Kerry in 2004. A very partisan Republican Secretary of State and a few cohorts locked themselves in a room, and when they emerged, GWB was the winner in Ohio.

Voter suppression can also rig an election. Florida was rigged for GWB in 2000 by his brother, Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida at the time, by purging people from the voter rolls. Many times, Republicans have rigged the election by providing too few polling places or too few voting machines in heavily Democratic areas to cause long waits that discouraged people from voting. (I have never heard of these types of shenanigans when Democrats are in control.)

There are many ways to rig an election. Ironically, the one that Trump is claiming will rig the 2016 election, voter impersonation, virtually never happens. There are major criminal penalties for voter impersonation. Why would someone risk that just to cast one extra vote?
