This is why I'm thankful for Donald Trump: he is the reminder we need that "it can happen here." Irrationality, bigotry, and some contemporary form of Fascism can be embraced by any people, any where, we are not immune. President Trump wouldn't hesitate to torture civilians, create internment camps, or start wars for the sole purpose of maintaining personal power. So, I'm not 'embarrassed' by Trump. In a way, I'm relieved. He's a good reminder that our darkest potentials are indeed always active.
