    Many of these millennials seem to think that bullying and throwing the adult equivalent of a temper tantrum is the way to get what you want.

    Well, the young'uns are hardly the only ones who seem to think that. You remember the government shutdown? :P

    Whose side are you saying the millennials were on? Clinton's? Bernie's? You talk about "bullying and degrading" but there was a fair amount of that on both sides. I'm not sure how to interpret your comment.

    Also, one might think that Trump's political campaign was one year-and-a-half-long temper tantrum by the biggest bully in the country. Unfortunately, the biggest takeaway appears to be that shameless, bullying, temper tantrums sometimes win. :-(
