After Donald Trumps’s speech at the Republican National Convention, I made this joke, inspired both by the plagiarism in the current Mrs Trumps’ speech and by the speech itself:
As with all my other Donald Trump jokes however, it turned out that I was actually spot on. From the very revealing article Donald Trump’s Ghostwriter Tells All:
Now, I would like to clarify that I think all Hitler and Nazi comparisons are over the top. I also think that Mr Trump’s danger lies less in what he believes (he’ll change his mind tomorrow anyway or just lie again) than in being a psychopath. Many elements of fascism can be found in Mr Trump’s speeches. But until the first people will get killed, let’s just stick to Mussolini comparisons for now.
