Trump's '60 Minutes' tantrum told us everything (opinion)

There was little more than a week to go. Polls showed him losing to a man he called "the worst candidate in the history of politics." But the President had one last chance to reach a vast number of Americans with his message. What did he do with this great opportunity?

He entered whining -- and left in a huff.

In the traditional end-of-campaign interview with "60 Minutes," Donald Trump showed that his comfort zone is still his bad boy stage persona. He insulted Lesley Stahl, a mild-mannered interrogator if there ever was one, by trying to cast her as a villain. He accused her and her program of being mean to him and favoring his opponent.

"You're so negative, you're so negative," Trump groused at one point. At another, he complained, "You're really quite impossible to convince," as if he was there to make a sale instead of discussing the pandemic, the economy and his other responsibilities. Then, after 37 minutes of this, he abruptly declared "that's enough" and left.

1. I wish someone would duct-tape a giant pacifier in his fat sphincter-mouth

Permanently -- so we never had to hear his fucking whiny griping ever again...
