Response to the following article which lead Michael to state, "If this doesn't convince, nothing will.":
Nothing will. The Trumpsters want a powerful man who bullies everyone else into doing what they want. It doesn't ever occur to them that Trump might end up bullying them as well.
No, they don't want a Hitler. They want a Mussolini. As I have pointed out before, Mussolini was at least competent and effective. Trump is neither.
Also, never forget that right up to the moment he was murdered by partisans, Mussolini maintained a core support among a few of the Italian people.
Nothing would change their devotion.
