The king’s tantrum

Dear Editor:

In the third season of “Game of Thrones,” the young king Joffrey has a temper tantrum. He’s ranting at his family and advisors at the big table in the throne room.

“I am the king,” he keeps repeating.

When Joffrey pauses to catch his breath, his grandfather suggests that the young king is tired and should go take a nap.

“But I’m the king,” the adolescent replies.

The grandfather stands up and growled, “A true king does not need to remind his subjects that he is the king.”

On Nov. 5, at 6:45 p.m., after our waiting 10 minutes for his grand entrance, the wannabe king of America had his own temper tantrum on the evening news. He proceeded to claim he was the rightful heir and the opposition had cheated.
