There has been much said about the political rise of President Donald Trump over the past few years, both good and bad to varying degrees of accuracy.
How and why would a multi-billionaire in charge of a vast business empire give up his relatively easy life of luxury to submit himself to the punishing slings and arrows of his enemies to not only govern the most powerful nation in the world but to try and right the course of a wayward ship of state?
Answer - Question - Monologue - Hollywood - Actor
The ultimate answer to that question may never be fully revealed, but a monologue by Hollywood actor Christopher Walken delivered in the 2002 film “Poolhall Junkies” appears to come awfully close.
While standing in a public restroom, Walken asks another man if he’s ever watched nature documentaries and seen one about lions, about which he then proceeds to share with his friend.
King - Jungle - Tree - Expanses - African
He described how the undisputed king of the jungle was just lying underneath a tree in the hot expanses of the African Savannah, un-moving and seemingly without a care in the world.
Even as the little lion cubs and eventually the lioness move about or attempt to mess with him, he still does nothing and remains still underneath his tree.
Animals - Walken - Jackals - Hyenas
“Now, the other animals, they notice this, and they start to move in,” Walken said. “The jackals, hyenas, barking at him, laughing at him.”
Do you agree that Trump and the GOP base could stand in for the lion in Walken’s metaphorical story?
