“Presume not that I am the thing I was;
For God doth know, so shall the world perceive,
That I have turn’d away my former self;
So will I those that kept me company.”  – Henry IV, Part II

I just re-watched Henry IV Parts I and II, of the amazing Hollow Crown series.  In this set of plays we watch the future Henry V go from being a brash, licentious, dissolute youth, to a king who renounces his former ways and his former lowlife companions to become a better person.  The plays end with the newly crowned King Henry V stating that he is a changed man, a better man, and that he will put from him the delinquent acquaintances of his youth.  Wouldn’t it be nice if Trump did the same thing?  Now that he is President-Elect, disavow his former scandalous self and his former villainous friends and become a more honest person.  I’m pretty sure it won’t happen, but, wouldn’t it be nice?
