The Folly of Making Unnecessary Enemies

When our children were still in preschool, we tried to teach them an important lesson: don’t pick fights with your classmates, and don’t start pointless feuds with your teachers. Apparently, Donald Trump hasn’t learned that lesson.

After a press conference, his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, grabbed and pushed reporter Michelle Fields. Instead of apologizing when she complained, Lewandowski called her “delusional” and publicly denied he ever touched her. A new video showed he definitely did make physical contact and police have now charged the Trump honcho with misdemeanor battery.

A prompt apology, with maybe a bouquet of roses to accompany it, would have made the whole incident disappear, but now it’s a major distraction feeding the theme of Trump’s arrogant hostility toward women. Making unnecessary enemies rather than useful friends is a terrible characteristic – in candidates, or preschoolers.
