Then it moved to his telling Meet the Press:
 “It’ll be obliteration like you’ve never seen before.”
This public “In-Your-Face” is :
(1) Trying to act like a reality TV show script
(2) Forcing a confrontation as is seen every day on any TV drama (and I include Reality in that category)
(3) Asking for someone in power to misread this insane-ego-driven-Look-How-Tough-I Am social media bloviating and respond.
I hope our President will get bitch-slapped (as they do on TV) and suddenly understands The Real World has nothing to do with a TV script.
