I want to challenge this a little: In what way is Trump not totalitarian? He likes "acting" heads because they don't have to go through the democratic process of being voted up or down by Congress. He dictates policy whether or not it comports with current law. He avoids any democratic processes like the plague (and he's a famous germaphobe. He says so). He fires any dissenters. What other aspects of totalitarian rule are missing?

With one small change what you wrote describes our Previous President.
"I want to challenge this a little: In what way is Obama not totalitarian? He likes "acting" heads because they don't have to go through the democratic process of being voted up or down by Congress.

Now you are being just being silly and obtuse. I won't play that game. Sorry.
