British Tabloids, American Republicans: Peas in a Pod

Britain has its tabloid press. America has Donald Trump. Both are purveyors of lies, slander, and insults. Both use character assassination to try to destroy the reputation of innocent people. Both have demonstrated they have no morals and no sense of common human decency. Both live every day in contemptuous defiance of God’s Commandments and Jesus’ Golden Rule.

But their mere existence dies not explain their success. Britain’s tabloid press has the British public willing to buy their debased product. Trump has Republicans who absolutely revel in Trump’s unending degradation and debasement of the Office of President and our political culture. But, have faith. The Republicans’ day of reckoning will come.

I empathize with harry and Meghan, and respect their decision. Anyone who despises the British tabloid press are friends of mine. But my ill-informed self feels they may be underestimating their loss of the aura of being members of the royal family.

I think Harry is basically a decent chap, but it was being a full-fledged prince that won him public recognition and made him a celebrity. His personal qualities and business skills had nothing to do with it. And, frankly, I doubt he and Meghan have the qualities and skills to keep them as high in the celebrity sphere as they will need to be to maintain their wealth and stardom. Meghan’s not being a Kim Kardashian is a plus for her character, but a negative for her bank account. 

My advice to them: go for the celebrity thing and make the most of it, but, the best thing you could do for your future is to take that $39 million dollars you have and invest it wisely. You need a good financial adviser more than you need a public relations shill. After all, Trump’s dad gave him less than that to get him going!
