I will remind you that both Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini came to power through legitimate democratic elections and only then transformed their regimes into one-party dictatorships. Both men were quite popular. Am I being melodramatic or hysterical. I do not believe so.
Trump attempted, unsuccessfully, to arrange for a Soviet, North Korean, or Nazi style military parade, complete with tanks and rocket launchers, to commemorate his ascension to power. He had to settle for an air force fighter jet flyover. It would be a very bad mistake to adopt an air of superior, passive amusement.
