Is Trump like Henry VIII?


The verisimilitude struck me today. They two share many traits>.

Both men and thin skinned, quick to anger and slow to forgive. They crave adulation and have an insatiable appetie for self aggrandisement. Neither will be gainsaid.* These adulterers were both flagrantly hypocritical, utterly untrusthworthy, infantile, aggressive, irresponsible and prone to erratic changes of Policy . They both espoused religious beliefs that they probably did not truly Harbour. These men were both totally subjective in their approach to things and were fixated with personal loyalty. These men had no truck with logic and any notion of integrity was Hebrew to theM.

There are of course some crucial dissimilarities between these two males. Henry VIII at least had the excuse of being born in the 15th century. He was brought up before the ENlightenment and indoctrinated into the divine right of Kings. Since his infancy he was told that he was born superior.

Trump on the other hand grew up in a democracy, in a rational era and in a place that paid lip service to the notion of equality.
