Popular vote loser Donald Trump is nothing if not a gigantic baby who throws tantrums when he doesn’t get his way.
That’s exactly what happened earlier this week when a Democratic Governor dared to point out to Trump how stupid his idea about arming school teachers is.
Governor Jay Inslee (D. WA) confronted Trump on Monday (to his face) over his proposal to arm educators in order to prevent future school shootings, in the wake of the horrific events in Parkland, Florida, two weeks ago.
“So I just suggest we need a little less tweeting here, a little more listening,” said Inslee, who has also been suggested as a possible challenger to Trump in the 2020 elections. “Let’s just take that off the table and move forward.”
“I have listened to the first-grade teachers who don’t want to be pistol-packing first-grade teachers. I have listened to law enforcement who have said they don’t want to have to train teachers as law enforcement agencies, which takes about six months,” he continued.
This was Trump’s response:

He just stood there, arms crossed, swaying gently like someone who knows that he’s been bested by a far superior man and who is about to take him to the woodshed.
Gov. Inslee makes very good points and they weren’t even his points to make. He was simply passing along what teachers have told him. They don’t want to be a “pistol packing” teacher.
