Plenty of celebrities let that status go to their heads. They become full of themselves and self-absorbed. Many think that Trump is one of those people, but are they right?
At the height of the Beatles’ fame, John Lennon famously made a statement comparing their own fame to the Christian faith:
“Christianity will go,” he had said. “It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that; I know I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now. I don’t know which will go first – rock & roll or Christianity. …-RollingStone
A review of Hollywood, the music industry, News, politics, academia, and the business world would turn up plenty of famous personalities who share that sentiment to a greater or lesser degree.
Imagine the world’s surprise when someone so committed to branding that his name appears prominently on anything he makes zigs where so many others zagged.
In one of Trump’s public appearances, he relates a conversation he had with someone about the fame that has come with being a pop-culture-icon-turned-Leader-of-the-Free-World.
He’s a billionaire with expensive tastes and expensive toys. And yet…
And yet his reaction is NOTHING like what the Beatles said.
Does he leave room for the possibility of being in that #2 slot?
Yeah. But then again there isn’t such a long list of other potential contenders.
When it comes to being called the ‘most famous’ Trump pushes back against that ‘most famous’ moniker. ‘No. I’m not’. It’s pretty much the opposite of the Beatles.
But Trump is just a ‘self-obsessed heathen’, right?
heck out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
