No justification of Trump stated or implied in my essay. My point was not to defend Trump, but to urge my readers to think historically and refrain from silly hyperbole. We won’t defeat Trump’s lies & distortions by mirroring them. We’re supposed to be the good guys, the ones who respect evidence, live in the fact-based universe? This holds as true for history as it does for climate change science.
