Obama is having a terrific tantrum, the effects of which President-elect Donald Trump must reverse. Why so?

Trump has promised to fight for the American people. Never the twain shall meet.
To Trump, making America great means making the American people great. To Obama, making America great means making government great and aggrandizing himself in the process.
