LETTER:Childish behavior

Why do we put up with this childish behavior from Trump?

Just like a child who realizes that he is losing a board game, Trump decided to just declare himself the winner on election night.

Later, when it was obvious he had lost, he called the other side cheaters, accusing them of “stealing the election,” all the while he and his cohorts were involved in their own steal by calling for an alternate slate of electors that would declare him the winner.

When that didn’t work, he resorted to crying, kicking and using force, inciting a riot that marched on the Capitol and threatened our lawmakers trying to carry out their constitutional duties.

Now that these rioters are being sent to jail, he calls for “the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”

Just like a child who realizes there are no other options left, he decides he needs to kick the board game off the table.

The only problem is that this is not a game, it’s the Constitution, something he took an oath to uphold and Trump is not a child, he is grown man who should understand the role and responsibility of the office he once held.

I think even a child would understand this better.
