Can you imagine if Trump had been President during World War 2 ?

"Oh, the Nazis just overran France ? Not your shipping clerk"

"Nazis bombing the UK every day ? Not your shipping clerk"

"Nazi subs patrolling waters off the USA ? Not your shipping clerk"

"Hitler declared war against the USA on December 12, 1941 ? Not your shipping clerk"

"Pearl Harbor ? Never heard of it. Besides, NOT YOUR FREAKING SHIPPING CLERK."

"You want me to ramp up production of tanks and other war materiels ? Not your shipping clerk"

You get the idea.

9. Nah, it would have been a reverse D-Day.

We would have had the national guard defending Surf City against a German invasion.

And reverse Iwo Jima would have had marines defending Redondo Beach.

6. just astounds me so many are so ignorant to approve

Watching the Plot against America on HBO. The book was excellent as well.

10. "Europe needs to fight this themselves"

He would’ve eaten it up though to blame them Asians for PH. That is straight in his wheelhouse

12. yes enjoyed that series

If we had Trump, that would have been the result for the eastern half of the USA, and the Japanese occupying the Western half.

15. Actually, I think he would have had us join the Axis

Hitler's idea of strength is right up his alley, and he already has Mussolini's gestures and facial expressions down pat.

22. This was my first thought. He and Edward VI

would have struck a deal with hitler to preserve their own lifestyles and send the rest of us into slavery.
