The Potemkin Presidency : the power of the Big Lie remains timeless

At the very least, this generation of school kids will no longer have to gape in disbelief as to how so many people were unwilling to believe Hitler's often repeated blood-curdling racist threats and so willing to con themselves into believing he was just saying them to help 'swing a deal' that would satisfy German demands over Versailles and placate its neighbours.

For they have the billionaire President-to-be Donald Trump before them : assembling the richest and most right wing Cabinet ever in American history, all the while claiming he is out for the ordinary six pack working stiff.

An American patriot --- or Putin's Poddle ?

Hard on the Chinese ---- or a willing-to-cut-them-a-sweet-deal Manchurian Candidate?

The Trump family has made it to the top by fabricating fake golfing and vacationing Potemkin Villages*, and by fabricating Fake News and Fake Political stances : fake, fake, fake : and a new generation of gullible parents and grandparents swallow it wholesale,  in 2016 as in 1936 ....

*Scottish political boss Alex Salmond becoming his generation's Neville Chamberlain when he got down on his knees to swallow that particular Big Whopper.
