We’ve been poring over Trump commentary in the past couple of weeks with horrified fascination.
On the one hand, it’s delightful to preside over the collapse of a political party devoted to hating science and keeping women barefoot and pregnant.
On the other hand, the idea of Trump-as-President is scary.
There’s no shortage of Hitler comparisons around, but he really isn’t much like Hitler (at least not yet). He’s not very ideological. He doesn’t lead a fascist movement. (Although he does smart over past wounds to the US. And he is a racist, down to the remarks about who some of his best friends are.)
But my wife Debbie came up with the right analogy today.
“Trump’s really like Kim Jong Un in a nice suit,” she said. And that said it all.
