Time Out Required
The President had a news conference today, though a more accurate description would be the President had the snit fit of a spoiled frat boy to whom no one has ever said NO.
With a two year old, you can put them in a chair and insist they remain there until they calm down. What do you do with a 60 year old man who thinks anyone who doesn't do exactly what he wants them to do when he wants them to do it is "confused". What do you do with a Presidential infant who thinks pointing his finger in someone's chest and repeating his demands are somehow convincing them of the rightness of his cause.
Somewhere in the West Wing there must be at least one responsible adult who will take him aside and say, "Sit here for the next two years, and we will fix everything, just stop breaking your toys."
