How will history judge Donald Trump? This film offers a fresh perspective on the question by setting his life side by side with Henry VIIIs to tell their stories in parallel. Its a comparison that may seem far-fetched, but one that sheds surprising new light on Donald, as leading historians and Trump-watchers investigate how the two mens respective characteristics connect them across centuries.
With all the problems in the UK, they waste time playing “what if?” level drivel with DJT and Henry VIII? Want another comparison? This kind of crap is like the orchestra playing on the Titanic.
Funny because I was thinking more along the lines of how they tried to use smog to drive Churchill from office.
I’ll never understand how they can equate Trump to a monarch/dictator.
People will do anything they can get away with. Every single one of them.
To be fair this was probably in production long before anybody in the world was thinking about the Coronavirus.
Donald Trump is our Winston Churchill.
Noted. But they didn't have to let it out of the can now. "Rather gauche, eh what?"
They still have to fill the airtime. Yesterday we watched the same type of program that compared the 2 Elizabeths and how they were eerily similar even though they were hundreds of years apart. Needless to say the treatment of the 2 Queens was a lot more sympathetic than that of Henry and Donald. BTW they weren’t too kind towards Henry either. The 2 Elizabeths was actually pretty good, which is why I even bothered to give this one a look.
Dickens called Henry VIII a blot of blood and grease upon the History of England. To his credit though, Henry brought the Reformation to England and built the navy that his daughter needed to defeat the Spanish Armada.
Lucy Worsley does a series called Royal History's biggest fibs and she did an entire program on how the defeat of the Spanish Armada was one big PR campaign. She basically said the Spanish Armada was doomed from the day it left Spain, England had very little to do with it and most of what the modern accounts show was Elizabethan spin. Here is a summary
The similarities between the two men is eerie, I tell you. Besides the ulcerated leg thing, the two men could be twins. Look at the horrible deaths meted out to anyone who dare oppose Donald Trump. And don’t even get me started on how he seized the property of America’s richest organizations and sold what was left of their property to his supporters.
Keep your free healthcare and bad teeth and wait for the Germans, er....Muslims to attack.
