Can we all just be Enlanders today?

[link:https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-52176222|

I was very touched by the Queen's address. I told my daughter to play it for my grandsons so they would know what leaders SHOULD sound like!

She never once accused the NHS workers of stealing supplies!

3. yes i guess i did

and i also know that she is mostly a figurehead, but her speech was EXACTLY what I needed to hear.

Not at all what we are hearing from the leader here.

4. My partner is English.

But he despises the monarchy. He did appreciate her speech though (he and his daughter are severe asthmatics and he’s been a wreck).

7. I know that feeling

I despised W, but there were times when he did say the right things. As much as I disliked him, he was certainly more "presidential" than the orangePusBall we have in the WH now.

5. That's the kind of thing we SHOULD be hearing

Instead we're getting a egotistical asshole who berates and ridicules us instead of trying to thank us, console us, and build us up.

8. It was like a balm to the soul

after the words and attitude of the orange thing.

I wish Obama would make an official message. It would be helpful and it would drive the new guy insane with jealousy! These are different and new trying times for the whole world, I think it would be appropriate to hear from past presidents.

9. Obama does not hold an office. Any message would be from a private

citizen.
