Krauthammer: Trump Is Thin-Skinned and Has Personality ‘That Makes Him React Irrationally To Anything’

On Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, columnist Charles Krauthammer stated that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s denial of support to House Speaker Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) shows Trump has “skin so thin” and “a personality that makes him react irrationally to anything, the slightest thing.”

Krauthammer said, [relevant remarks begin around 5:55] “[T]he most interesting aspect of his denying support to Ryan, originally, is on what grounds? Was it on the grounds that they have a disagreement over NATO, or taxes? No, it had nothing to do with that. It was because Ryan dared to object, and to state an objection to the way that Trump had treated a Gold Star family. It was personal pique. He wasn’t respected. This is a man with skin so thin that he will disavow his own Speaker of the House, a man who commands tremendous respect, and who had sacrificed a lot of it in order to endorse Trump, over a personal slight. That’s the problem at the root of all of this. It’s not that he doesn’t have — doesn’t understand a general election is different from a primary. He has a personality that makes him react irrationally to anything, the slightest thing, and the perfect case is the Paul Ryan event.”
