    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/09/15/union-leader-endorses-johnson-over-trump/90394662/For the first time in 100 years, the New Hampshire Union Leader will not be endorsing the Republican candidate for president. Instead, the venerable conservative newspaper is electing to endorse Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson...

    ...The editorial goes on to call Trump, who is campaigning in the Granite State Thursday, a "liar, a bully and a buffoon" who "denigrates any individual or group that displeased him. He has dishonored military veterans and their families, made fun of the physically frail, and changed political views almost as often as he has changed wives."

    You forgot to mention this: "The paper did not endorse Trump in the primaries either, instead choosing to back N.J. Gov. Chris Christie. In response, Trump called McQuaid a "lowlife" and predicted the Union Leader wouldn't last two more years."

    This has been Trump's modus operandi. He has a fragile ego that is easy to manipulate, negatively or positively. In other words, when his ego is massaged by someone like his BFF Putin, he returns the compliment and effusively praises the con. On the other hand, when his ego is attacked or challenged, his bully 6th grade instinct lashes out. Could you imagine how fragile-ego Trump would react if North Korea's Kim Jong-un were to call him "little fingers"? Nuclear war.

    And that's what's meant by temperament. It isn't just a lack of diplomacy skills, but his very perception would put us and the world at risk.

    Electing this guy to lead this country would be like giving your 17 year old his own brand new vette. You'd wind up with a dead kid in a car wrapped around a tree.
