“We pledge to you that we will root out the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country that lie and steal and cheat on elections,” Trump said toward the end of his speech, repeating his false claims that the 2020 election was stolen. “They’ll do anything, whether legally or illegally, to destroy America and to destroy the American Dream.”
“The language is the language that dictators use to instill fear,” said Timothy Naftali, a senior research scholar at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. “When you dehumanize an opponent, you strip them of their constitutional rights to participate securely in a democracy because you’re saying they’re not human. That’s what dictators do.”
Steven Cheung, a Trump campaign spokesman, told The Post “those who try to make that ridiculous assertion are clearly snowflakes grasping for anything because they are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and their entire existence will be crushed when President Trump returns to the White House.”
Though he did clarify:
Cheung later clarified that he meant to say their “sad, miserable existence" instead of their “entire existence.”
Yeah. That’s clearly better. Not something an authoritarian dictator would say at all.

Yeah, they ain’t no Perry Mason and Della Street, but those two never defended losers.
(The hearing has ended now… Hampton’s lawyer, Miller, admits to releasing the videos starting at about 20:35 and goes on to argue vaguely that not releasing all pre-trial evidence immediately to the public somehow “misleads the public about what’s going on”. Also, lots of talk about how his client “wants to be totally transparent”, which, well… that’s kind of what got your client in trouble to start with.)
Barely an hour after a gag order prohibiting Donald Trump from commenting about court staff at his civil fraud trial in New York was temporarily lifted, he was at it again – unleashing a blitzkrieg of social media outrage at a clerk who has become the lightning rod for the former president’s rage.
So if this poor clerk is “rubbed out” (as gangsters like Trump prefer to say), will the Don be indicted for accessory to murder?
I hope that fuckwit scumbag has a terminal stroke during his sentencing and blames his legal team on his old Xitter account before foaming at the mouth and shitting his pants noisily.
That’s what a real man would do!
But how would he know that?
