” (Kathleen Parker, July 3): As a survivor of a wildly unstable, narcissistic adult during childhood, having Donald Trump as president is nothing short of one long looping nightmarish flashback. His latest CNN episode depicting him physically attacking a member of the media has provided additional evidence of his grossly underdeveloped problem-solving skills and truncated coping strategies. It’s debatable whether Trump has any emotional intelligence, as he regularly mimics a malcontented 2-year-old throwing a tantrum. What’s worse than having a president who reminds one of a monstrous parent? The people who continue to excuse, enable and laud his despicable behavior as though it’s normal and admirable. That’s the real nightmare. One thing is missing: real pushback as it would have happened on the playground when I was a kid. President Trump, here is what would have happened in my neighborhood: Why don’t you pick on someone your own size.
