Another keen observation about Donald Trump from the brilliant thinker Robert Reich:
Donald Trump is the closest we have ever come to a dictator. Don’t think we can’t come closer. Never become complacent.
— Robert Reich (@RBReich) November 11, 2020
If we come closer, it’ll be because of someone like aspiring authoritarian AOC, whose stated goals would require a dictator to set things up.
But seriously, Donald Trump is most definitely not the closest we have ever come to a dictator. Not by a long shot.

All those Japanese internment camps he set up were terrible…

No, that was FDR.

Closer than FDR? You remember him? The guy who sent Japanese people to concentration camps.

And FDR wasn’t even the only president who was a wannabe dictator.
Is Robert Reich just trying to scare people? Or does he genuinely believe it, in which case he’s even more messed up than we thought he was?

Yeah, dictators totally hang on to legal challenges to see if they won an election.
