Trump is inartulate but he loves this country. But I agree with Morgan.

    PIERS MORGAN: In just five brief minutes of calm empathy, fortitude and history, the Queen inspired her people to overcome this coronavirus crisis better than President Trump has rallied Americans with 50 hours of rambling, self-promoting twaddle\\

    And if we friends from either side of the great pond are going to level with each other, then let me be brutally frank in return: the Queen did more to comfort the British people in five minutes last night than President Trump has done in over 50 hours of self-aggrandising, contradictory, inaccurate, inflammatory, point-scoring addresses to the American people during this crisis.

    Let me be clear: I wouldn’t wish the burden of trying to lead a country during this pandemic on my worst enemy, let alone a friend like Trump with no experience of anything like this.

    But that’s why people go into politics – to lead.

    And Trump’s leadership so far has been woefully erratic and singularly lacking in the gravitas, empathy and calm, measured tone that all Americans are crying out for right now – of the kind that New York’s impressive governor Andrew Cuomo has displayed on a daily basis.

    If you only gave 5 televised speeches since 1952 then I bet you could be quite prepared as well.

    Especially when it's pre recorded. You get as many tries as you like.

    Dave you beat me to it. The Queen has given 5 speeches - written by others - in the last 70 years. And no news conferences. No Q & A. No nothing except having the personality of a dead fish. No one would honestly compare their roles, or their respective impact on the world.

    The term is “Inarticulate”
    I believe Trump comes across great. He speaks from the heart. You can tell he is not reading something written for him by a committee.

    Piers reminds me of English Bob in Unforgiven.

    I'd love to see how the queen would fare inspiration-wise if she were constantly dealing with an antagonistic media that gave her something on the order of 90+% negative coverage for years, and was out to trip her up and misquote her in order to spin everything she said as negatively for her as possible.

    He still beats the Putz from Canada. The shiny pony can’t complete a single sentence in English or French.

    I am not sure about Trump’s artistic ability? I am not even sure inartulate is a word. Now, what was the question?

    The Queen is not a leader. She is a figurehead. She hasn't set any policy, taken any action, organized any response or risked any politcal capital. All she did in the last 2 months is give one, scripted speech.

    I'll take Trump over her any day and that goes for the last four Presidents too.

    I will continue to listen to President Trump, he is doing a great job to try and keep us informed. Things keep changing as more data keeps coming in. Do you really think the Queen has any idea of what's happening?

    She’d have them drawn and quartered. [Or] at least killed in a single car accident near a bridge...

    While I voted for Trump (mostly over supreme court picks), I have agreed with most of his policies, he has been great for the US and the alternative (HRC) would have been a fate worst than death for the US - Trump is a horrible speaker. He will never be referred to as the "great communicator".

    The Queen has betrayed the British people by staying totally silent and complicit for decades as her own subjects are turned into an oppressed minority in their own country, and over a million little white girls have been raped by Muslims.


    I guess Her Majesty has more important priorities. Like covering up for her pedophile son Prince Andrew, and her pedophile cousin Earl Louis Mountbatten.

    My humble opinion is that the good Queen is a good figurehead who can do a good job reading a statement most dispassionately. But that's her area of responsibility. Worry about Meghan's misbehavior, worry about which hat to wear;a.n.

    She does not have an aggressive adversarial press gnawing on her butt every minute, she doesnt have the obsessed Grendel's mom whipping any group that can condemn anything from Valentine card to a dogturd. And she doesnt have the well being and economy of more than 330 million Americans weighing on her every hour of every day..
    Easier to console the subjects than 1/3 billion independent citizens.

    The difference being that Trump is actually leading something.

    Piers doesn't have a clue what the difference is between a figure head "monarch" and the POTUS. The Brits will apply their "stiff upper lip" approach to her comments including the brit press. He is naive at best about the coordinated DNC and "press" attacks on DJT solely for political purposes (their own - not the country's). And as for his fawning over cuomo, there is a BIG (as in gargantuan) difference in responsibility between NY and USA. He also neglects to mention that part of the NY/NYC covid-19 severity is cuomo's own making! He and De Blasio implored people - in March no less - to not worry and go out to eat, go to shows etc. Piers is a condescending asshat without any critical thinking ability.

    If it was up to royal family aka england’s crime family, America wouldn’t exist!

    The royal family is the reason America was created, and the reason for our first and second amendments!

    You’re right, she needs to tend to her inbred perverted offspring.

    Piers is the world's leading expert on rambling, self-promoting twaddle.
