5. I found it startling. But -- old, alone, no one to talk to (his words) --

A stranger in a strange land, and his native-language news speaks in the only language he truly trusts.

I pointed out to him that there were many, many cultured, well-read, intelligent, Christian Nazis and talked about how intelligence is no secure harbor from fascistic propaganda.

He disagreed. "Lies, all lies," was his constant catchphrase.

Trump's message rings loudest in the ears of the mentally ill, the alone, the small, the lost, the angry. He struck me as one of those.
