I’m a certified Television Series lover. You give me a good scripted show and I will give you a good 48 minutes of my life once a week. Unless you’re Netflix and then you can get me all night and I’ll deal with the consequences later. Like everyone else in the country I have been looking at the news and social media in horror at seeing our new Commander and Chief bully, whine, belittle and mock his way into the highest office in the land.
It wasn’t until today that I realized who exactly Donald Trump is, he’s Joffrey all grown up. I have hated a lot of television characters in my life, I’m not sure I’ve ever disliked one more than I disliked Joffrey Lannister. He was spoiled, scary, evil, spiteful and felt as though he was above all laws and standards because of his last name and the family he was born into. Who does that remind you of?
There were women in Antarctica protesting Donald Trump. Millions of women all over the country united in their absolute distain for one man. There has never been a more disliked political figure in our history and I know why. It’s because him and Joffrey are the same person. Melania Trump and Sansa Stark had that same look of doom and gloom on their faces.
Those Secret Service agents walking down empty streets, they may as well have had on white cloaks.
