Some Pundits Have Called Trump A King

That is an abuse of the term. Kings are leaders of Nobility. Kings have codes to follow. A good King supports nobility, honor, and justice. Trump is no King. He is a con man, a grifter, a dangerous fool, and an Authoritarian who would like to be a Dictator. He is no King.

If Trump were a King, he would be a bad King, a Tyrant. He is not even that. Even a bad King comes from the nobility. Trump is nowhere near that. He is a gross and garish Nouveau Riche, a cheap social climber/wannabe, and a crude thug. He is a narcissist with no sense of honor, justice, right or wrong. So to the pundits- please stop calling Trump a King. That elevates him too much. He is a two-bit tin Dictator wannabe. Nowhere near being kingly in any sense.

3. George R.R. Martin himself said that about Trump

said that if Joffrey survived and grew up, he'd be like Trump.

2. I like the idea of calling him a king

It's what the MAGAts called Obama, and it seemed to get them pretty worked up. Turnabout is fair play.

4. drumpf and the russian repugs think he is omnipotent and seem poised to make him a dictator.

They know he's a stupid persons' idea of a smart man and a cowards definition of a strong man and is only a front for russia - and they are totally ok with that.
