Default Time cover gets Trump just right

Quote:
Time magazine has connected the dots of Donald Trump's intensely personal presidency. The magazine's cover features the President in his business suit, staring into a mirror that reflects him in regal splendor, complete with crown. "King Me," declares the cover line, but the good stuff is announced in the headlines below: "Visions of Absolute Power," "Trump vs the Constitution" and "Why Mueller Won't Indict."
Quote:
In these pieces, Molly Ball, Tessa Berenson, Neal Katyal and Jack Goldsmith define the style and practices of a man who leads in the brutal and imperious fashion of a cartoon monarch. The roots of this ignoble attitude run all the way back to the President's childhood as the scion of one of America's wealthiest men in a family where he was groomed to royal ways.




Quote:
"You are a killer, you are a king," was the mantra intoned by President Trump's father Fred as he taught his boys to believe in their right to rule. This detail, reported in Harry Hurt III's biography "Lost Tycoon, The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump," is a chilling marker for anyone trying to understand the degraded condition of politics under our current president



finally he can brag honestly

Trump is the one who verbalized wanting his people to "sit at attention" when he speaks. That is some message.

Of course, the reference couldn't be that 'his people' are Americans, now could it? While Trump has an ego that exceeds the size of Texas, there are times I truly believe he says some of his bizarre crap just to send the anti-Trumps into a tizzy.

It is rather entertaining, you have to admit....

You run on that message. I'm sure you'll do well.

A king does what he wants, and what his loyal court desires, even if it is against the will of the people. Trump is getting done, the very things he promised to the people who elected him. Even at the chagrin of the courtesans.

And for the effort, some of the courtesans have rebelled.

Doing the will of the people doesn't make him any more regal than the people who voted for him are. I'm proudly one of them and don't have any feeling of regal trappings whatsoever.

However, it is pleasant to hear the swamp creatures howl about their evictions.

My goodness depicting Trump as a king is insulting. While the king Trump image is a fabrication, photographers went to great lengths to show Obama as a deity complete with halo. Trump the dictator versus Obama the deity. Yeah sure our media is nonpartisan and objective.

These rags posing as a collection of journalists and acting as the propaganda arm of the Democratic party, are getting what they deserve. They are loosing readership and are going bankrupt quickly.
