Tony Soprano and the Don (ald)
Remember when HBO presented their take on a mob family. Fans of the Sopranos were enamored with Tony. We were all concerned about his well-being. No one wanted anything bad to happen to him. We gasped every time another guido planned to take Tony out and we rooted for prosecutorial failure whenever Tony, or one of his family were up against the law.
FICTION! The writers at HBO knew how to make a character likable, relatable, even with major flaws.
In walks Donald Trump. Another major gangster with his own crew of sympathizers/writers at a national network.
This is not HBO, hold the criminals responsible.
