Strangely none of this sounds weird.

I prefer the non-Hitler Trump comparisons, because Hitler is such a fundamentally different person who merely used (really invented) the same tactics and preached similar things.

The person I always think of: Marcus Crassus. Shady land dealer, major role in the end of the Republic (but not the death blow), not nearly as talented as he thought he was, ended his reign with a black mark against Rome and an ignominous death.

Nicely done. So many comparisons you can make. Right now, I’m thinking Watchmen . . . the comic, not the movie. Seriously, doesn’t the current president-elect look like something that Ozymandias would unleash on the world in order for most of it to unite against it? You can imagine Hillary and Bernie* cornering Adrian in Antarctica to confront him about it. “You expected me to give you a chance to thwart me? I set it loose eighteen months ago.”

*C’mon, you were expecting Tim Kaine?

ETA: The current president-elect is not Hitler. I am convinced he cannot grow a dinky mustache.

We almost literally had the election from Transmetropolitan.

Yeah, but Hillary was neither Beast nor Smiler. Her opponent was both. And the alpha douche third party guy.

I saw this in a theater the Saturday after the election, and it was a nice salve. A silly goofy film but has a good message about working together.

“There is something greater than Trump’s law!”

You know, a few days after the election, I watched Flash Gordon as well and found myself strangely moved at Flash’s plea during the duel: “If you kill me, promise you’ll team up with Vultan and fight Ming!”
