My reply to a high school classmate who complained about Trump haters: I’m sure much of what you say in defense of Trump was said by Hitler admirers in defense of Hitler in Germany in 1932. Only later did many Germans regret their worship of the Fuhrer. But by that time it was too late. Trump isn’t Hitler you are probably thinking. That’s true, but in our 200 plus years as a country, no president or presidential aspirant has come closer to Hitler in his politics and demagoguery than Trump. Or different in some ways, but they are found in the same ball park.
