Expert On Dictators: Donald Trump On A Path Of Despotism | The Last Word | MSNBC


  1. We live in a time of insecurity. Dictators are essentially daddy figures that remove responsibility from frightened people. Clinton: I will give you education (so you can be an adult). Trump: only I can save you (so you can be a safe child).

  2. Corporate heads are despots in their companies and they are more comfortable with despots than democracy. The trains run on time… they said in Italy. Ordnung they said in Germany.

  3. Trump wanted to be King and live in a King-Dumb with dummies who would listen and never speak up about the horrible Dumb King!

  4. Any person who supports Trump is un-american, against democracy and hates freedom of the press, & freedom of speech. These fan bots yearn for a despotic leader who makes his detractors kneel at his feet. Trump desperately wants his subordinates kneeling at his feet. He wants to be king. He wants to be a dictator. Will he allow an election in 2020? Is that what you want uneducated America? The answer sadly appears to be 'yes'……

  5. It's about time that somebody is focusing on the real problem. This country is increasingly
    being infected with people with NPD. These people are very dangerous and destroying this country. It is time for us to stop following his action and start preventing them. Let's be pro-active instead of re-active. Trump is not just talking, he is doing.

  6. Am getting this book. I will share this book. I will gift this book to family and friends. Must wake up elected officials to do what’s right.

  7. A person who use power organization such as Police or Justice system to scare others, often disrespect such system and use it to their favor.
