    In “The Nazi and the Psychiatrist: Hermann Göring, Dr. Douglas M. Kelley, and a Fatal Meeting of Minds at the End of WWII,” Jack El-Hai points out that Hitler made Germans think not with the brain’s frontal lobe, but with the thalamus, this is emotionally. Same here with Trump: his followers are not thinking rationally. Trump: same demagoguery, same stratospheric narcissism and sociopathic largesse; same white supremacist, incendiary discourse and demonization of religious and ethnic minorities. Or worse, as Hitler was a mere former army corporal, whereas Trump has a college degree and is even more sophisticated when lying and deceiving. Give Trump what Hitler did not have, the nuclear codes, and wait for a world-level catastrophe.
