Trump of Thrones

It’s the year of the disruptor. Smashing traditional political patterns of the past. Nominating a real estate developer. Celebrity television man. A guy who lives in a gilt castle on Fifth Avenue. With his own airplanes. Helicopter. Sounds more like an oligarch or monarch. Donald the First. We live in a new kingdom. Problem is. Moats don’t work anymore.

Hillary is next in the line of Democratic succession. Yet her crown is tarnished. Her reign stale before it begins. Bernie. Her 74 year-old rival for the throne is the fresher face of the future. Corral the dragons. Raise the drawbridge!
