Bombastic billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump revealed his inner tyrant again on Monday, making one wonder how egregiously he would use government power to destroy political opponents if elected president.
Following reports over the weekend that the family that owns the Chicago Cubs, the Ricketts family, had contributed money to an anti-Trump Super PAC, the Our Principles PAC, Donald Trump took to Twitter to threaten and bully the family with strongman tactics that would make Hugo Chavez proud.
In a tweet on Monday morning, Tyrant Trump threatened to blackmail the Ricketts family, writing, “They’d better be careful, they have a lot to hide!”
I hear the Rickets family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $'s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!

Trump got lambasted on Twitter for his mafia-like tactics, with some wondering when Trump’s dirty dealings over the years would be exposed.
@realDonaldTrump we haven't even scratched the surface on revealing what all you're hiding

Others wondered when Trump might be acting “more presidential,” as in this hilarious vine:

Still another clowned Trump’s vague “Make America Great Again” with a proposed replacement version: “Make Revenge Great Again.”
@ConservativeLA 1) Cubs anger Trump 2) Cubs go 108 years without World Series victory. Don’t mess with Trump. Make Revenge Great Again.

Are you troubled by Obama using the IRS and other agencies to target conservatives? He will be considered a lightweight in comparison to what Tyrant Trump would do to his political opponents.
@realDonaldTrump You are warning them to be careful? Mr Trump you sound very evil for intimidating somebody that has a different opinion

Enemy’s List, anyone?
