A history lesson easily forgotten

On hindsight, one may wonder how a bombastic orator with big words and promises without substance could get such a following? How could he just start with a relatively small group of uneducated, hateful and distrustful youngsters and expand the following into a broader representation of at least a good part of the country, promising to make it great again?
How could he play so blatantly on hate for another group and get so many people to agree with him? How could he stand there in front of the masses claiming divine sanctions and that he was doing God’s work? How was it possible to turn such a disgraceful movement into winning the top job, – apparently without even cheating?

Well, Adolph Hitler did it, so why couldn’t it be possible for Donald Trump, – especially if enough gullible people don’t comprehend what he is up to?
