Well, Dave, I get your point, but the real lesson here is just how pathtic humanity can become. There is nothing new about Trump’s play book. Hitler and many others of despicable character have successfully — for a while — played to the people’s worst impulses.

Alas, when guys like the Donald fire up gutter impulses for self-gratification, the outcome is never good. Hitler’s little foray into the dark side cost the world some 60 millions lives and hundreds of cities raised to the ground. Now these evil ones have total life on earth ending nukes to play with. The guy with the sign saying that the end is near might want to come out of retirement.
