If by childish you mean a complete douchebag, you are correct. His supporters are even worse.
Donald Trump has admitted that the language he’s used while on the presidential campaign trail has been ‘probably a little childish’.
During an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, the anchor woman said: ‘When people say the temperament question… this a guy who’ll call someone a loser and they say that’s childish, not the temperament of a president.’
Speaking at Trump Tower in New York, the pugnacious Republican frontrunner defended his rhetoric by replying: ‘Probably is a little childish. But you know what? This is a campaign… and usually I’m responding to them. I’m a counter-puncher.’
The billionaire added: ‘For instance, (Gov. Scott) Walker was very nice to me. All of a sudden, he hit me and I hit him back.
‘All of these guys. (Sen. Marco) Rubio was very nice to me, couldn’t have been nicer. All of a sudden a week ago he started hitting me.’
Is he really so naive to think in a race for president he wouldn’t be subject to criticism and ridicule? What a twit.
Trump’s childlike admission comes as the latest poll by NBC/WSJ shows him almost neck and neck with Ben Carson in the national Republican presidential race.
He is currently the first choice among GOP primary voters, on 21 per cent, while retired neurosurgeon Carson is close behind on 20 per cent, a 10-point jump for him since the last NBC/WSJ poll in July.
He’s already peaked and only has one direction to go: Down.
