Trump’s marketing campaign responded by apparently taking challenge with the “ridiculous” framing. However in the identical breath, it additionally promised that Trump’s “snowflake” critics’ “total existence will probably be shattered when President Trump returns to the White Home.” (It later sought to vary it to “unhappy, depressing existence.”)
Effectively, then (emphasis mine). I like to recommend the entire piece, which does job of emphasizing the similarities within the rhetoric.
It might be tempting to dismiss the previous president’s rhetoric and plans as both jokes or the ravings of a madman who could ultimately discover himself in jail.

the mundane reality in American politics is that a lot of what we wish to know is evident. You do not have to go looking arduous or search it out; you simply need to pay attention.
And Donald Trump is telling us loud and clear that he desires to finish American democracy as we all know it.
