According to Andy Borowitz President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, has lashed out on Twitter yesterday accusing spell check of treating him unfairly.
President Trump often likes to play the victim to garner sympathy from his supporters and to incite a sense of outrage and retaliation against his perceived enemies to thwart his wishes and desires.
Psychologists have a word for this - "childish."
Psychologist, Dr. Jonah Sproul, stated, "Lay people call this the 'terrible twos' which is the stage of childhood when children have temper tantrums if they don't get their way. Adults who act this way are examples of what child development specialists call 'arrested development.'."
Dr. Sproul further stated, "This kind of behavior is seen in adults who are narcissistic and have a grandiose sense of entitlement. The behavior will continue and even escalate unless there are mature authority figures for the adult child who can limit it. Otherwise the behavior will continue and get worse."
"What can the average citizen do," asked Betty O'Hern?
Dr. Sproul said, "What do you do with a tantruming child? If you are an effective parent you know exactly what to do. Talking doesn't help. The main tactics are time out, re-direction, and a statement that no requests can be considered until the individual calms down. The main thing is that the tantruming child is reassured that there are adults in charge who will keep things safe."
Betty O'Hern replied, "That sounds very good. Where are the adults?"
Unitarian Universalists are, hopefully, adults who could step up and help Americans stay safe. Where are they? Where is their voice? Where are their actions? When America needs, desperately, credible leadership to improve the spiritual health of the nation are UUs making a contribution?
