I was just listening to a video of Tucker Carlson and Mark Steyn, in which they were joking about Michelle Obama referring to herself as “your forever first lady”.
Mark said he though a better title would be “Mrs. Obama”, and that there is a word for a “forever first lady”, and that is “Queen”.
He further said that he doesn’t think it’s right to continue to call someone “Senator” or “Governor” when they are no longer performing the duties of those offices, because in a Republic titles are earned by a vote of the people. They aren’t royal titles, like Earl or Duke.
Along that same train of thought, I have been making it a point to ALWAYS refer to President Trump as “President Trump” in blog posts, comments, etc. I never say “Trump” or “ptrump”. The reason I do this is that there are too many people out there who would refuse him the title that he has earned, and I want to make sure that they are exposed to it as often as possible. I am just doing my part to remind them that President Trump became President because millions of people voted for him.
Here’s the video:
