I was watching part one of The World At War, a documentary from the 1970s on Youtube. It was a little eerie how some of the descriptions of Hitler coming to power resonated with today's America. Not that Trump is Hitler. Not saying that.  But the way he was supported by 'industrialists who thought they could control him and old party people who thought they had him well in hand. And then the part where they talk about the military taking new oaths "Where once they had sworn an oath to the constitution, now they swore to him, by name." I'm willing to bet Trump would have had everyone in government swearing a loyalty oath to him rather than the constitution.

And despite that and all the revelations since he left office almost all the Republican base wants him to run again and Republican politicians quiver in fear of incurring his displeasure and say anything he tells them to say.
