    Is Donald the Would-Be Dictator, Trump the Would-Be Tyrant, turning out to be a "Very Weak Autocrat"?

    Greg Sargent of the Washington Post thinks so, writing on February 15. See:

    Donald Trump is suddenly looking like a very weak autocrat

    (Sorry, I don't have a link. Please go to Google.)

    And weak or strong, Trump is already showing such an autocrat's contempt for the other branches of government, and our Constitution, in the short time he has been in office, that the number of Congressional Republicans who must surely be thinking "Impeachment" even if they are still too timid to say it, has to be growing rapidly, along with all of the Democrats, which is a given.

    See also, E.J. Dionne, writing in the February 15 Washington Post:

    Admit it: Trump is unfit to serve.

    How long will it take the Congressional Republicans to admit this and to do what they have to do for the sake of America and our democracy?

    To give credit where credit is due, Trump appears to have made a decent, sensible choice in his replacement Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, an Hispanic who appears to be experienced and well qualified, to replace the absolutely hopeless Andrew Puzder, who was the cartoon character of a totally unfit choice for this position - only much, much worse.

    Trump must know plenty of decent, qualified people whom he could have picked for various cabinet and advisor jobs.

    Why in so many cases, did he go out of his way to pick the worst, least qualified people that he could possibly find for so many vitally important positions? One could argue that there is something psychological going on here, sort of like a naughty schoolboy who gets even naughtier and more out of control if someone tries to discipline him.

    But this is out of my area and I will say no more.

    More ranting and raving from our chief executive (who, by the way, is many things, but is not an anti-Semite - to paraphrase Steve Bannon, can the media please shut up about that particular nonsense?).

    Trump has a Jewish daughter and son-in law, both of whom he is very close to, and he certainly considers himself a friend of Israel.

    The reality of Donald Trump is already unhinged and dangerous enough for America and the world, without making up something for which there is no evidence whatsoever.

    For a link to the New York Times letter written by 35 psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers saying that Trump is mentally unfit to hold office, see:

    For my updated February 18 comment on the disturbing resemblance between Trump's leaked plan to use the National Guard for immigration roundups and Hitler's use of the Gestapo for roundups of his political opponents right after taking power in 1933, see:

    With the admittedly very big exception of the anti-semitism and mass murder of Hitler's Holocaust,
    Donald Trump's program for America bears a very uncomfortable resemblance to the motto of Germany's leader of eight decades ago:

    Ein Volk. Ein Reich. Ein Fuehrer.
