Do you think its true that once a dictator always a dictator?

At a town hall yesterday Sean Hannity asked Trump about the media saying he would be a dictator if he returned to the Oval Office. Trump initially shied away from responding, but when asked a second time he said he would only be a dictator on the first day of his second term.

I think that is the biggest lie Trump ever told because he is likely planning on being a dictator for ever if he gets back in the WH. Cheers!

listen carefully to what he said, he would get all of his goals accomplished on day one! he also things it is a joke!

People don't know what a dictator is anymore. Even Nazi Germany needed to implement the Enabling Act to become a dictatorship. Trump would need to shut down congress to do so. Him joking about only being a dictator on day one is just him being his usual self.

@JackMasters HA HA HA! "massive revolution" against this bidenesque disaster.

@ElleryQueen Huh? I'm not quite getting your point here. I guess the only thing I can say is that the EV issue really doesn't have anything to do with Biden. He's promoting it (and unnecessarily incentivizing it) because he's into green tech, but the EV Revolution is going to happen despite politics. It's about ecoonomics.

Is that kind of what you were referring to? I wasn't sure.

Of course that's true.

Power concedes nothing willfully.

Red Caesarism is leading us here with white nationalists, Q and racists in tow. Red Caesarism is can be traced back through Fox News, the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh, The Southern Strategy, The John Birch Society to Father Coughlin and beyond.

For decades social science has predicted that white America would wince when its simple majority became simply a plurality and we are now witnessing it convulse.

Why would any sane rational American adult kiss the orange traitor's ass and do his bidding in violation of the constitution and the American creed?

@bijouxbroussard Being a dictator, for even a day, would be like crack to someone with Trump’s particular mental issues. One taste of that, and he would never give it up.

@Diotrephes they’re like a cancer from the inside, and half the country is going, “yay! Cancer!”

Well, we are supposed to be a kind of demoracy, so if that's what the majority of the people want then that is what we will get.

@Diotrephes “I love the poorly educated!” - Donald Trump
There's sort of a ring of truth or a hint of self awareness there, though.

Trump would probably fare no better as a dictator than he did as a businessman or first term President.
@Carla True, but his "puppet hood" is a different issue than his basic fraudulent sociopathic nature.
Carla · 61-69, F
@MistyCee also true.
Without that nature though, he wouldn't have been developed.
He was always in it for himself. Perfect for those that wish to burn it all down.
@Carla Its the "burning down" and the idea of repealing without regard for replacing with something better that bothers me.

I get where there's short term profit and advantage to be gained from chaos, but in the long term, it doesnt seem viable devalue things like honesty, respect for others and the institutions we've developed just for a few quick bucks, revenge or ego gratification.

Seriously, how did he think “Only on day one” was going to be received 🤦‍♂️
Nanoose · 61-69, M
@Zaphod42 Well when he said it the crowd cheered. Of course the crowd was packed with his supporters. Anyway I think Trump will be saying more stuff like that and I hope he does because it will be more proof for Jack Smith that Trump wasn’t beyond using his presidential powers to overturn the 2020 election results. Cheers!

That’s frightening even for a day!
Nanoose · 61-69, M
@Handfull1 It is scary. Sometimes I use humor to make things seem less scary. So I thought up this joke. On his first day in the WH – Trump will stand on a WH balcony that over looks his subjects and he will say - I hereby decree that from this day forward Washington apples will be know as Donald J Trump apples. Cheers!
