To the Tower with him!
January 24, 2017
If Trump’s crew continue with their program of alternative facts, what if journalists created an alternative president? What could Trump do if CNN, BBC, CBC, Reuters and other media outlets reported thoughts and activities of Mike Pence as though he were already Head of State? How long would it take for White House sycophants to catch on and switch their allegiance? A gradual increase of Pence standing could lessen the load of expectations for which Trump is clearly not prepared.
If world leaders denied standing to Trump and looked instead to Pence, could the Donald’s lies and loose-cannon rants be contained before he does any real damage? A figurehead president, Rapunsel-like, could live out his term away from the White House, pressing buttons on a mere video-game representation of World politics, and given his lack of interest in real input, remain none the wiser.
Over the years the Tower of London has housed kings and pretenders in similar fashion. This is not a new idea.
