“Donald Trump will go down in history as the president responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of Americans due to the criminal negligence [sic] in his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and for pushing the world closer to a precipice with his denialism [sic] of our climate crisis; yet, he may ultimately be best remembered for having decidedly transform American political culture with the theatricality of his proto-fascist politics. … While he had no previous political experience, his instincts told him that the route to power in a highly divided society was to double down on those divisions — a tactic employed quite successfully by extreme political figures all over the world, including Benito Mussolini in Italy and Adolph Hitler in Germany.” [editor’s note: What “negligence?” Trump did more “progressive”-recommended crap about COVID-19 than the constitutionally allowed, including invoking war communism – TLK] (07/10/21)
