In what's been called 'a fit of pique', President Donald Trump has spoken of his anger at the way many people, in the media, in the political forum, and beyond, still refer to former leader, Barack Obama, as 'Mr. President'.
Mr. Obama, for most of his 8-year term as the president, acted with an assured dignity that one might expect from a political leader. Contrast this with the diabolical rantings of the madman that is the present incumbent of the job: a man who doesn't know right from wrong, right from left, or write from read, not that he's particularly capable in either.
Trump tweeted his dislike of the practice of referring to Mr. Obama as 'Mr. President' yesterday evening before he went to bed, and is clearly unhappy.
"People should stop calling him 'Mr. President'. I'm 'Mr. President', not him. He's 'Mr. Ex-President', or 'Mr. Former President'. Or 'Mr. Yoosta', or 'Mr. Yoostabee'! I think this an important issue if my true greatness is to be recognized," twittered Trump.
But somebody who wished to remain anonymous, said:
"The use of the word 'President' to follow the word 'Mr.' when addressing the head of what is merely 'government', is a sign of the way the American people indulge the whim of inflated self-importance at play in, not only American politics, but also in everyday life."
Mr. Barack Obama was being referred to as 'Mr. President' somewhere, and declined to comment.
