Let's start here: Dan Rather does a good job summarizing the Sinclair propaganda facet of Trump's authoritarian regime.
Rump's authoritarian behavior includes subverting democracy, failure to be transparent, failure to be accountable, nepotism, cronyism, and many dimensions of financial corruption.
Trump's authoritarianism includes thwarting the will of congress, obstructing the protection of the environment, and putting property & people & planet at unprecedented risk.

#Authoritarianism -- including #TrumpAuthoritarianism -- is very much about warping the popular sense of reality & morality to suit the interests of the regime.

#Authoritarianism at its core dispenses with check & balances -- so the regime can engage in criminal and sometimes even treasonous acts.
#Authoritarianism breeds & feeds upon the gullible.
#Authoritarian #dictators #autocrats throughout history have much in common with #Trump

But fortunately #authoritarianism often eventually leads to its own demise.

Sometimes however, a bit of help is needed to hasten the inevitable. #WHCD
Supporters of #authoritarian regimes often praise the #dictator for his outspoken diction,
but at a deeper level are emotionally resonating with the #autocrat's #xenophobia

OTOH, Court jesters in olden times could speak truth to power through playing the fool.
We need a free and independent and critical -- and even cynical -- press to combat #authoritarianism
