Trump has hissy fit over late night comics mocking him: "He's a fragile little snowflake"



 Trump can't stand it when the yolks on him:

Trump Just Threw A Middle-Of-The-Night Tantrum Over Late Shows Mocking Him


By chance an ad for a new Amazon Prime show, The Burial, was placed in the story here:

The premise of the movie, based on a true story (from Wikipedia) is:

In 1995, Willie E. Gary, an unconventional personal injury lawyer with an impressive track record, helps financially troubled funeral home owner Jeremiah Joseph O'Keefe sue a large funeral home company, the Loewen Group, over a contractual dispute. Gary ultimately won a $500 million jury verdict and the Loewen Group filed for bankruptcy.
I like that the lawyer, Willie E. Gray, is played by Jamie Foxx because Trump has been having, to put it mildly, a lot of trouble with attorneys who happen to be Black.

Of course the placement of this ad is accidental (or is it?) but I like that it is just above the line about Jimmy Kimmel calling Trump a fragile little snowflake who can't handle a little humor.

Check this out:


A couple of the best lines:“You’d think the guy who fathered Eric and Don Jr. would know how to handle jokes” and “maybe this is why Donald and Melania sleep in separate bedrooms. She was laughing too hard at my monologue at night.” Another: "he's so fat they renamed the plane Air Force Wonder Bread." Not funny, Kimmel plays about a dozen clips of Trump defending free speech.


We know that Trump is not only interested in watching people fawn over him on television but also in watching what his critics have to say about him. He's commented about what Joe and Mika say on "Morning Joe" and that he is especially sensitive to being made fun of by comedians.

There is ample material for mocking the megalomanical malignant narcissist but late night comic writers still have to be espcially orginal and sharp because they are all competing with each other to see if they get what must be a covetted attack from Trump in a social media post which will then be reposted in the media. Trump may not realize, or care, that when he attacks a late night comic he gives them free publicity.

For somebody who fancies and fantacisizes himself as a tough guy he seems oblivious to the fact that a real tough guy, that is someone (male, female, or other) who is secure in their identity, wouldn't be bothered by these jokes and if they are really comfortable with themselves they would be able to laugh at the better jokes.

At the end of 2019 the Trump campaign launched a website to help supporters "beat snowflake relatives in arguments *read article)" and both Trump and his MAGA army consistently call liberals snowflakes.

Wiki defines snowflake as a derogatory slang term for a person, implying that they have an inflated sense of uniqueness, an unwarranted sense of entitlement, or are overly emotional, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions.

So, Mr. Trump, who's the real snowflake?

Since a real snowflake, a dry one at least, is fluffy and if caught in your hand will quickly melt, Jimmy Kimmel's calling Trump a fragile little snowflake is on point although I might have called him a large fluffy snowflake who melts into an insignificant puddle in the palm of the hand when he's made fun of.


Addendum: 

No offense meant to real snowflakes which are a marvel of nature and truly beautiful.

snowflake is a single ice crystal that has achieved a sufficient size, and may have amalgamated with others, which falls through the Earth's atmosphere as snow. Each flake nucleates around a tiny particle in supersaturated air masses by attracting supercooled cloud water droplets, which freeze and accrete in crystal form. Complex shapes emerge as the flake moves through differing temperature and humidity zones in the atmosphere, such that individual snowflakes differ in detail from one another, but may be categorized in eight broad classifications and at least 80 individual variants. The main constituent shapes for ice crystals, from which combinations may occur, are needle, column, plate, and rime. Snow appears white in color despite being made of clear ice. This is due to diffuse reflection of the whole spectrum of light by the small crystal facets of the snowflakes. Wikipedia
