Although Donald Trump is a historic political figure, he has some less enviable traits too.
Chief among them is his short fuse and eagerness to insult those who disagree with a particular set of views. This is an ironic feature to the President- elect, who was helped by an anti- politically correct national mood to gain control of the White House.
These tendencies to intimidate dissenters or those he disagrees with, were seen after Mike Pence was lectured at a theatre by the cast of Hamilton, with Trump responding via twitter.
“Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing,” the president-elect tweeted on Saturday, November 19. “This should not happen! The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”
When considering these demands contradicted Mike Pence’s humble reactions to the incident, Trump is made to appear as a fool.
These petty, trivial grievances, are hardly worth the attention of the President- elect, who has far bigger issues to solve.
Having said all that, there are some who have used the incident as evidence of Trump’s lack of fitness to serve as President.
Such people have learnt nothing from the extraordinary 17 month election cycle we just observed.
For if recent history is any guide, writing off or placing limitations on what Trump can achieve, is rarely a wise decision.
