TV Presidents: Comedian and a Con Man - The New Norm in Politics Worldwide

Ukranian comedian Volodymye Zelenskiy is now the country's leader.

                                        Good Day World!

I had a good laugh this morning will drinking my first cup of Joe.

Apparently a comedian, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, is now the Ukraine's new leader.

It seems like TV characters are becoming the people's choice to lead their countries in the 21st century.

Zelenskiy played the fictional president of the Ukraine on TV. And as Americans all know, our TV president was a reality show host.

How can such unlikely candidates compete with professional politicians? A comedian and a con man?

The answer is the same way Americans did against the British. Break the rules. Instead of lining up and getting cut down like sheaves of corn, Americans hid behind objects when fighting the British, giving them a tactical advantage.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not comparing Trump to an American patriot. Just the opposite. Trump broke rules to further his own corrupt personal agenda with the help of the Russians. Americans broke the rules of war to win their freedom.

Just a thought; the connection between TV stars and politicians is a strong fan base. Once fans, always fans. It accounts for Trump's loyal base who loved seeing his transition from reality star to a real world politician.

Quick observation: I think Ukrainians must have a good sense of humor. I hope it works out better for them than our TV star, and now liar-in-chief. 

One thing is for sure: I'll bet that the Ukraine's new leader didn't get help from the Kremlin to get elected.

There's no way to know how successful Zelenskiy (who won 78 percent of the popular vote) will be jumping from TV to reality.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
