What Donald Trump doesn’t get

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern used her press briefing this week to reassure children about the possibility of the Easter bunny not showing up this year. This is how a real leader takes care of her nation. Yes, The Easter bunny may be a silly concept by adult standards. But she understands that the children in her nation are going to legitimately worry about something like this – particularly at at time when their entire worlds have been turned upside down.

Donald Trump used his press briefing this week to accuse an Asian-looking reporter of being a Chinese government spy, and to make dangerously false claims about a drug that he couldn’t pronounce. It’s not difficult to figure out what the problem is here: being a leader requires a quality called leadership, and Trump simply doesn’t have any. Also, he’s not human.
