I am astonished to hear this president admonish members of Congress for sitting and not applauding what he said during his State of the Union address. Donald Trump’s behavior is reminiscent of Hitler. We must remember history so as not to bring it to our shores.
First, he admonishes, next he threatens, then he shuts it down. There are enough generals in the White House to pull it off. I have seen our democracy lose its letters under Trump’s march to authoritarianism — we are now down to “d-e-m.”
