Back In June, Hillary Clinton stated Donald Trump was not thick-skinned enough to hold the office of the presidency—the most powerful office in the world. Mrs. Clinton said:
"This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes, because it's not hard to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin."
Trump, as usual, disagreed with his political opponent vehemently, saying to CNN’s State of the Union:
I don't have thin skin--I have very strong, very thick skin.
Mr. Trump’s antics on Twitter would state otherwise. Last night, once again, Alec Baldwin donned a bad orange wig and delivered another humorous Saturday Night Live performance, in which he played the president-elect. Which can be seen below.
Trump, however, was none too pleased with this sketch—just like how he was none too pleased with all the other Saturday Night Live sketches, in which Mr. Baldwin portrayed him.
How many years has Saturday Night Live been parodying and poking fun at presidents? Since Gerald Ford, I believe. I remember seeing Ford lampooned on the show. I remember seeing Carter being made light of as well. Other presidents who were irreverently portrayed on the weekly sketch show: Ronald Reagan, President Bush, President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush and President Obama.
None of the aforementioned Presidents of the United States complained about their Saturday Night Live portrayals. Trump is the first to have done this.
The self-proclaimed thick-skinned Commander-in-Tweeter also attacked actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger last week.
The reason? Because Schwarzenegger didn’t support Trump’s bid for the White House, apparently.
That’s right: He attacked—actually attacked—Arnold Schwarzenegger for—according to him—supporting Hillary Clinton and John Kasich.
This is the same guy who, during his acceptance speech after winning the election on November 8, stated that he wanted to be everybody’s president—even the people who didn’t like him.
If that’s the case, why does he react this way on Twitter, lashing out at people who didn’t endorse him, if he wants to be “everybody’s” president?
But don’t worry. As the president-elect has already assured us: He’s not thin-skinned at all.
