Trump, Hitler, Erdogan, Hitler, Godwin

July 18, 2016

Adam Gopnik fears that Trump is a threat to the constitutional order. I agree Trump sits at the far end of authoritarianism in our political spectrum and would make a terrible president. But he is no Hitler. Hitler had a plan. Hitler wrote a book. Trump couldn’t write a book without a ghost writer. Who now regrets that partnership. As the ghost writer says about Trump, “my 2-year-old grandson has a longer attention span.”

Erdogan wants to be like Hitler. My old college buddy Mike — and now a civil liberties lawyer — was smart enough to figure out that every internet conversation sooner or later references Hitler.
