Hitler took power with about 33% of the vote.
Trump currently owns about 33% of the vote.
Trump has said; "I am not leaving office".
Trump's first wife said that he keeps 2 books by the bed;
"Mein Kampf"
a book of Mussolini speeches.
Trump has also been grooming his private Gestapo called "Ice"

Google "hitler support timeline to power"

Just saying ................

So how'd all that work out for Hitler? I think they found his teeth.
You wanna Google stuff? Google "Mussolini hanging". This is the ultimate fate of fascists.

Neither of them is remembered for making their countries great again.

The cost to ensure that it didn't work out for them was in excess of forty million souls.

Hopefully we can slash prices and vote this guy out in 2020. End of problem. Minimum lives lost.

If he's re-elected it could go into the billions of souls lost.

I'm okay with it either way. I'm a big picture kinda guy. One surefire way to cut off a bunch of carbon emissions would be to kill half the population. Half the rest would probably die off attempting to survive in a world where the weather has gone mad. Eventually the dust would settle and an entirely new civilization arise. They will worship the Earth as a living goddess and vilify the Daemon Trump who is held back only by the will of the people and the gates of the underworld. So yeah, I'm thinking ahead a bit.

Hitler vs Trump? Hitler was a lot smarter and actually had a grand plan. If he'd avoided the racism thing he might have succeeded. Trump is just a grifter filling his pockets before he gets kicked out.

I have serious doubts about the veracity of that book story too. It's way over his head. We're all pretty sure he's dyslexic by now and doesn't read anything.

Hitler was an idiot: He killed some of his best minds when he decided the Jews were the perfect scapegoat. He invaded Western Europe and then he attacked Russia too. Bonehead move caused by believing your own propaganda. The Germans were so superior they couldn't lose! HA!

He should have just gobbled up a few small surrounding countries like the Soviets did later, and nobody much would have cared. And not by blitzkrieg, but by politics and economics. He could have ended up with the EU, with Germany at the head. If he just did it slow and careful, Germany would be running the world by now.

For a little while they sort of were, until that nasty bit of Brexit wiped that out. The Russkies are tickled pink by all the Brexit Balkanization going on.

But modern Germany got where they are through social democracy, not fascism. The UK is being torn apart by white supremacy and nationalism just like us and at the heart of the Brexit movement is immigration
Brexit's gonna f*ck the UK up bad. Scotland's gonna secede, Northern Ireland aint happy about it, UK wants all the rights and privileges without the EU membership. Ten years down the road they'll come crawling back to Germany and begging for re-admission.

Hitler screwed up when he went the racist route.

Trump screwed up that morning when he attacked The Squad and made the 2020 elections about racism.

Everyone is just waiting for November 2020 to hand him a gun and send him into the bunker.

Hitler was totalitarian, Pres. Trump is not. To say Trump is like Hitler in any way is ludicrous!

Trump himself is on record as expressing a desire to be Prez-4-Life, but even if he's joking, a fairly impressive number of his most hardcore supporters aren't.
Hence the nonstop demonizing of Democrats and liberals in general as "unamerican", "America-hating" and "enemies of the state" all add up to a soft form of codespeak which can, given enough momentum, become a somewhat less soft form of stochastic terrorism.

How far one wishes to ratchet up the agitprop is anybody's guess but as we all bear witness to, it's been ratcheted up pretty far by others in the past, and Trump is nothing if not a fan of hyperbole.

I find hair-splitting about whether or not he's "according to Hoyle" Hitler to be a waste of time, simply because we should not stand around waiting to see if he's going to check off the remaining boxes.

We have to vote him out, and maybe next time, Republicans will come up with someone better.

Agreed. Trump isn't half the man Hitler was and probably won't be remembered as fondly.
