Trump's a two-bit, wanna-be Colonel Kurtz

Just without the balls or principle.

Literally threatening US Senators with physical violence. Anyone else would be immediately impeached.

And yes, once again, he should be arrested.

If I managed an employee who said anything like that to anyone else- "joking" or not- they would be immediately fired. Those are NOT "joking" words. They are meant to inspire fear.

2. Your assignment for tonight is to rewatch Apocalypse Now

Before Colonel Walter E. Kurtz went insane, he was one of the finest soldiers America has ever produced.

Trump has failed in everything he has ever done. Also, some of the things Trump has done were so stupid it boggles the mind to think he'd try. For instance, exactly why would a man who sees the drinking of alcohol as a sign of failure open a dozen bars and create a line of distilled spirits?

3. I'll rewatch it if you reread my post...

I gave very brief recognition to what are some supposedly positive qualities of Colonel Kurtz.

The point of analogy was the very intentional use of fear as a manipulation tactic. Oh, and heads on pikes.
