NYT reports Trump continues to be more childish every day.

Americans woke up on the last day of 2016 to a message from President-elect Donald J. Trump wishing them a happy new year.

But the holiday missive, posted on Mr. Trump’s official Twitter account around 8 a.m., came with a pointed jab.

“Happy New Year to all,” Mr. Trump wrote, “including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!” (Some social media users homed in on Mr. Trump’s use of the word enemies, rather than opponents or another word for those who oppose him.)

That’s so typical, isn’t it, and so symptomatic. We have no right to oppose him or disagree with him or describe him accurately. We’re not legitimate critics, we’re just enemies. His Majesty the Baby speaks again.

Even a holiday known for its good cheer, it seems, could not dull Mr. Trump’s penchant for doling out taunts and insults via Twitter.

And this is the guy who will be president of the US in 21 days – a guy who loves to taunt and insult people on Twitter. He’s just another Milo Yiannopoulos, but he’ll be president.

The Times goes on to make the inevitable point that it’s a distraction. Sure, it is, but we can talk about both.
