After 90 torturous minutes of Donald Trump flailing about, the Republican presidential candidate was tired, angry and petulant (a word that more than one news outlet has been using). After months of attacking Hillary Clinton over her health and stamina, Trump looked worn out and listless while Hillary looked ready to go give a speech (which she actually did several minutes after the debate ended).
But at no point did Trump look and sound more like a cranky child up past his bedtime than at the end of the debate when he literally started to whine about how mean Hillary Clinton has been to him:

But she’s spent hundreds of millions of dollars on negative ads on me, many of which are absolutely untrue, they’re and they’re misrepresentations, and I will tell you this, Lester, it’s not nice, and I don’t deserve that, but it’s certainly not a nice thing that she’s done.
“It’s not nice, and I don’t deserve that, but it’s certainly not a nice thing that she’s done.” Boohoo? No, seriously, a grown man running for President of the United States went on national television and complained that his political opponent is mean to him. This is the man who will face down our geopolitical rivals?
Will he wag a finger at China when they say bad things about America? Will he stand up at the UN and tattletale on Iran? Will he launch an airstrike again Libya because they hurt his wittle feelings?
This is a thin-skinned man-child manifestly incapable of being president.
