Storyboard Text

  • I am the ghost of Beowulf. I was a man of great strength
  • Who are you and why are you in my office?
  • I drove five great giants into chains. I am a leader and am also very courageous.
  • I am Donald Trump and also a man of great strength. I get things done and I don't back down to anyone. What makes you so great?
  • That's great Donald but I was a man of real courage. I once dove into waters infested with all types of monsters. Most men would be scared but fear and I were strangers.
  • I am also a very courageous man. Over the past two years I have taken on the corrupt mainstream media.
  • I was a wealthy man as well. The difference is I shared my wealth. I gave Higlac horses and great treasures as a man must.
  • That's great Beowulf but you also don't have a ten billion dollar business. I must say that I'm really rich.
  • While Beowulf and Donald Trump are both men of strength their societies have a different view on the meaning of strength. In the Anglo-Saxon period strength was determined by performance on the battlefield. In today's society strength is more so determined by resiliency.
  • I was very loyal. I repaid Hrothgar by killing Grendel because of the reception that my father received at his court. He bought the end of my father's quarrel.
  • Beowulf, It sounds like you are very loyal but so am I. I awarded some of my most loyal followers with positions in my cabinet.
  • During the Anglo-Saxon period courageous individuals were those who were not afraid to lose there life in battle. Beowulf displays superhuman courage. In our society those who step outside of the box are considered to be courageous. Donald Trump represents this type of courage because he was brave enough to challenge the media and the political establishment.
  • I died a hero's death to save my people. They built a tower for people to see far and wide, and they sealed my ashes in it. Surely I do have a legacy. I was a great king and a greater warrior.
  • You sound like a good guy Beowulf but you didn't leave behind a legacy. I have a great business and I am the President.
  • In the Anglo-Saxon period wealth was important but was mainly determined by the wealth of the king. All treasures awarded were supposed to be gifted in some part to the king. Beowulf represented this value of society. In our society wealth is determined by the amount worth and money seems to be idolized. Donald Trump represents this value of society.
  • In the Anglo-Saxon period loyalty was shown by repaying those who helped you out in a time of need. Beowulf represented this because he went to defeat Grendel because of the way that Hrothgar had taken in his father. In our society loyalty still seems to be a very important value. Donald Trump is a very loyal man who repaid his most loyal surrogates with cabinet positions.
  • The only legacy that the Anglo-Saxon's cared about was based off of success on the battlefield or as the king. Beowulf was successful with both of these and because of this represented his society. Our society places a major importance on making a name for yourself. Donald Trump represents this value because he goes to any extent possible to add something to his resume so that his name will be remembered.
