My wife brought this little snippet about Pud's trip to my attention.

People think Queen Elizabeth II shaded Trump by wearing a tiara that’s a ‘symbol of protection against illness and evil’

I can understand why the queen of England would want to defend herself in Trump's presence and also why she sent Trump a message in the tiara, so to speak. However, expecting Mr. Trump to have even the slightest awareness of his moral failings or any vestige of the Noblesse Oblige to act on them is naive.

The man is not “disruptive” or “norm-shattering.” He is an oaf who has never listened to the word “No,” and believes rules are little more than a stick to beat others with. David Bowie was disruptive and norm-shattering, and an actual genius. Donald Trump is just another rich white American man for whom cultural and procedural restraints, not to mention laws, are an inconvenience. He doesn’t ignore them; he literally doesn’t understand why they should exist for a man of his race and station.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
