How Trump and Hitler Are Alike

There’s a reason why Adolf Hitler was obsessed with Aryans, and wanted to remake Germany in their image. They were tall, handsome, beautiful, blonde, chiseled, fit. In short, they were everything the small, ugly, dark-haired, un-athletic Hitler wasn’t.

Similarly, this Aryan fetishizing explains Donald Trump’s fascination with strongmen, and with those he sees as winners. Because he himself is neither. Rather, he’s an obese, out-of-shape, ugly-on-the-inside-and-out, urine-haired orange-hued nepobaby who despite a $400 million inheritance from daddy still managed to end up on the road to bankruptcy and prison.

For the MAGAs who may be reading, let me repeat myself: Donald Trump is neither a strongman or a winner. He’s a weak, feckless coward and a loser of epic proportions whose pathologically-obsessive aspirations to be someone he’s not rival that of Hitler.

And to my fellow libtards, make no mistake: if given the chance, Trump just might be as bad as Hitler. He’s a hate-filled white supremacist; a despicable racist with the survival instincts of a NYC subway rat. Consider that he’s tried to have his former VP killed for what he felt was a betrayal. That he fantasizes about using the military to assassinate his opponents. And, when it comes to black and brown immigrants, we know he’s obsessed with Eisenhower’s “Operation Wetback”, and if president again threatens militarized mass deportations and detention camps.

So at this chapter in his reign of terror is genocide really such a stretch? Would he attempt the rounding up and mass slaughter of minorities, immigrants or anyone else if he felt it’d benefit him politically or financially…or if it’d keep him out of prison? If it allowed him to fulfill his dream of being president-for-life? The fact that this is even a semi-legit topic of discussion means that it’s a possibility, however remote. And that is terrifying.

Which is why Democrats need more than a 55 % turnout. We need to vote like our lives depend on it. Because it does…
