The US needs a king!
Yes, they do. A whole royal family to watch and gossip about. Then they have their show and don't have to vote TV personalities into office, or actors, or multiple members of families.

A nice royal family can do all the appearances and hand holding and such, while competent people run the government.

Give the people what they want and we can all live and prosper.

I am actually getting serious about this - people seem to have this need to admire some family, keep them around in the public eye and gossip about them. They vote for presidents that fit the bill.

If the people need public pets, let there be a king who can do no harm.

I nominate Samwell Tarly. (He's gonna be King anyway, the dragons have already decided, might as well throw in my support early.)

Yabbut, you don't actually have any powers, but you do get to live in a mansion and have servants.

What we need is an AI branch of the government with veto power and a knack for sniffing out irrationality.

RE: The US needs a king!
This whole adulation shit is not good to direct at politicians - people vote for actors and reality show personalities and have "royal families". Think about it. The people just want someone like the British Royals, so they can chatter about it and live through them.

A rich reality show host lets them live vicariously through him, the face is familiar, the wealth is great.... I really think that the majority of who voted for him just wanted an idol that their gods would not object to. It's a huge factor. Look at all the celeb stuff that people consume.

If you gave them something harmless to practice their worship on, we could get on with choosing competent presidents.
