"Even if all that Trump is doing is marching to that populist drum, he is unleashing forces that imperil the fragile fabric of a multicultural democracy," Neuborne writes. "But I think there's more. The parallels -- especially the links between Lugenpresse and 'fake news,' and promises to restore German greatness and 'Make America Great Again' -- are just too close to be coincidental. I'm pretty sure that Trump's bedside study of Hitler's speeches -- especially the use of personal invective, white racism, and xenophobia -- has shaped the way Trump seeks to gain political power in our time. I don't for a moment believe that Trump admires what Hitler eventually did with his power [genocide], but he damn well admires -- and is successfully copying -- the way that Hitler got it."

My "Languaged word."

Where is the President's fabric swatch book? He has to select upholstery for interrogation facilities at Gitmo. Hitler had no sense of fashion. Hitler was not God's gift to women of the world. Hitler never wasted time debating inferior genetics. Hitler did not have a hot sexy genius daughter like Ivanka, or a meathead son-in-law.
