President Trump is in the UK and the media is doing everything they can to uphold their crass, undignified, wormwood agenda. Oddly, while vilifying everything down to Melania’s dress, they continue to punctuate the meme that Trump is unpresidential.
The British media, a spattering of royals, the London mayor, and a hodge-podge of populace who pride themselves on being proper and dignified, have instead invoked their dark side and clamored to be all things crass and CNN.
Chuck Todd of NBC went so far as to declare that Trump is interfering in the British elections by supporting Boris Johnson’s candidacy. No president or prime minister in history has ever evoked a reprisal for supporting a particular candidate in an election in a foreign country. Ever. In fact, Macron, Merkel, May, Khan, Trudeau, etc… have all voiced rather belligerent offensive statements toward Trump.
And somehow the vast hypocrisy is lost on a intellect that has either been abducted by aliens, or morphed into the insanity of drugs.
London’s mayor, Khan has been an outspoken critic vilifying Trump since he began running for US President, but apparently that’s okay. Meghan Markel had the audacity to speak in ‘nasty’ terms about Trump, and that’s okay. Prince Harry is sulking. And a Queen who has spent her entire life living a fully funded extravagant lifestyle simply because she was born, while actually ‘doing’ nothing is revered.
Lady Gaga met Queen Elizabeth dressed as the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. And that’s okay. Because in reality, Lady Gaga was making a statement that within the realm of Obama, we were living in the land of Alice.
Historically, Jackie Kennedy voiced her displeasure with the Queen, finding her petty and self obsessed. The media was largely quiet because, – she was Jackie Kennedy.
Obama committed gaffe after gaffe when in the presence of the Queen, but those moments were simply justified as; ‘he is just human’. And Michelle continually gaffed with her choice of dresses sometimes matching the Queen and other times donning hot pink. OUCH!
Imagine if the US held such protest rallies mocking and denigrating the Queen… We would be held to the highest tribunal and court martialed. The British media would go berserk denouncing the American pilgrims as ignorant, crass, and beneath basic decorum.
Protesting Trump because of his anti-abortion and immigration stance, making obscene and verbose statements with regard to Trump, Melania, and Ivanka, this is the British representation of ‘honor and integrity’. The same people who decry that Trump is not of the royal family and unacceptable consider these public statements British decorum.
But these are truly the days of Alice whereby Michelle Obama was called the most powerful woman in the world and a fashion and fitness icon… by the British media. (I imagine the Queen was not pleased given her demeanor as Global Highness).
But the British Royals have become rather odd in their recent evolution, preferring Hollywoodites to statesmen, crooners to scientists, and comic book characters to intellectuals.
Knighthood used to be an honor bestowed on a man for his service to the monarch or church. Most often it was a military grant levied for valor and sacrifice. But it has morphed into a bit of a joke wherein the likes of Bono, Bush, McCartney, Stewart, Caine, Elton-John, Geldof, and other celebrities have become the nom-de-pleur beneficiaries. As a result, the British Monarchy has made Knighthood a veritable Academy Award for celluloid heroes. And exchanged dignity for a Shakespearean Comedy wherein the actors don Masks.
In the end, Trump’s delightful joke in referring to Meghan Markel as a great American princess was lost on the celluloids, the British, and CNN for its truism in the world of Alice.
