Ten Reasons Why President Trump is Nothing Like Hitler

Have you had run-ins with liberal friends or family who are suffering from some form of Trump Derangement Disorder? One particularly common subtype is TiH Syndrome, also known as “Trump is Hitler”. This is a kind of psychosis in which the victim truly believes that Donald Trump is indistinguishable from Adolf Hitler.

If you encounter such a person and you think they're not too far gone, you should ask them the following questions:

1. Has President Trump ordered the Majority Leaders of the House and Senate to dissolve Congress and replace it with an “Imperial Government of the People”? No? Then Trump is not Hitler.

2. Has President Trump reinstituted the draft for all able-bodied, military-aged people? No? Then he is not Hitler.

3. Has President Trump ordered the expansion of American “Lebensraum” (i.e. "living space") — say, into Mexico or Quebec? Has he called for the “merciless” Americanization of the native populaces there? No? Then Trump is not Hitler.

4. Has President Trump placed all press and broadcast media directly under a censorship authority controlled by his party? Has he effectively subjected all public comment on his administration to the veto of his agents? That is, has President Trump placed the editors of the New York Times, the Nation, Slate, Salon, NBC, CBS, PBS, ABC and CNN directly under the authority of a law that will be enforced by Steve Bannon? No? Then President Trump is not Hitler.

5. Has President Trump forbidden public demonstrations against his administration, policies or personal authority? No? Then President Trump is not Hitler.

6. Has President Trump recruited 50,000 military aged men to serve as the backbone of an internal police force tasked with beating, assaulting and terrorizing his political enemies in order to compel their obedience to the state? No? Then President Trump is not Adolf Hitler.

7. Has President Trump secretly ordered his agents to set the Capitol building on fire and then blame the Democrats for it? He hasn't, has he? Then President Trump is not Adolf Hitler.

8. Has President Trump ordered the Bill of Rights to be suspended? No? Then he’s not Hitler.

9. Has President Trump dissolved the senates or other deliberative bodies of the states and placed those state governments directly under the control of his administration? No? Then President Trump is not Adolf Hitler.

10. Has President Trump set up any concentration camps or mass-incarceration prisons, say for the purpose of imprisoning his political enemies? C'mon — tell the truth. He hasn't, has he? Well, then President Trump is not Adolf Hitler.

Let's stop here, and give your TiH-afflicted friend or family member a chance to catch their breath.
