I'm sorry. It was a joke. Just like his presidency, and the next 4 years of US/Geo politics will be.
He is not Hitler. No. The more educated of us will see him as Milošević. His rise to power was identical to his (a populist-nationalist rage, coupled with fear of a certain religious minority). And he has flavors of Karadžić, as well. (seriously, they have the same hairstyle!) With some states already defying him, I wonder if the US will go down the same road of the once proud Yugoslavia.
Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter...etc, were politicians. Nothing more. Nothing less. They were bullshit artists. Some better than others. The came to town talking a big talk. The educated among us cried "bullshit!" but went along with it. They knew that. They knew that we knew they were full of shit. We elect* the best liar. This asshole, actually believes what he says. He believes he can get what he wants by bullying people around (Milošević) and by being overtly hostile to and painting the media who disagree with him as "fake" and denying access from opposition media (Milošević). If he doesn't get his way with other governments, he will bully other republics (Milošević) and become openly hostile towards them (Milošević) and he will seek allies with those who oppose those who oppose him (Milošević).
Constitutionally speaking, he won the election with that archaic electoral college. He lost the popular vote, despite his disagreeing with the facts. There was no voter fraud to speak of. He has no mandate. Bush, had no mandate his first term. In fact, back to back GOP presidencies were lost to the popular vote in their first term! (In fact, all presidents who were elected losing the popular vote were republicans! no wonder they (kind of) love the constitution!) Trump did not have, as he claims, the widest victory margin, or the largest inauguration (despite what he believes).
So. Yeah. Joke.
