[Here from Wikipedia is a little bit about the grown-up child boy, Klein, the whining cry baby who whined and cried so much about Trump. Quite unbecoming for an adult.

Klein was raised in a Jewish family in Irvine, California. His father, Abel Klein, is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Irvine, originally from Brazil; his mother is an artist. Klein attended University High School, where he was a poor student and graduated in 2002 with a 2.2 GPA. After graduating from high school, Klein attended the University of California, Santa Cruz for two years before transferring to the University of California, Los Angeles, from which he graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. While at UCSC, he applied to write for City on a Hill Press but was rejected. He said school was never a great fit for him academically or socially.
