Dec 27, 2023

Hard to keep track of all the racist, unhinged, authoritarian comments by the former president? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered

In 2015, the man who coined Godwin’s law, a famous maxim about argument on the internet, wrote a column for the Washington Post. Its headline: “Sure, call Trump a Nazi. Just make sure you know what you’re talking about.”

By the lawyer and author Mike Godwin’s definition, his law reads thus: “As an online discussion continues, the probability of a reference or comparison to Hitler or Nazis approaches one.” Since Republicans fell under Trump’s thrall, the law has often been invoked. Why? See our list of the 10 worst things Trump said in 2023:

We pledge to you that we will root out the communists, Marxists, fascists, and radical left thugs who live like vermin within the confines of our country.

Nobody has ever seen anything like what we’re witnessing right now … It’s poisoning the blood of our country.

I love this guy. He says, ‘You’re not gonna be a dictator, are you?’ I say, ‘No, no, no – other than day one.’ We’re closing the border. And we’re drilling, drilling, drilling. After that I’m not a dictator, OK?

In 2016, I declared: I am your voice. Today, I add: I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed: I am your retribution.

… an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been DEATH!

If you go after me, I’m coming after you!

If I happen to be president and I see somebody who’s doing well and beating me very badly, I say go down and indict them, mostly they would be out of business. They’d be out. They’d be out of the election.

He is a Soros-backed animal who just doesn’t care about right or wrong.

And I swear and I’ve never done that … I have no idea who the hell – she’s a whack job.

That’s why it was one of the great presidencies, they say. Even the opponents sometimes say he did very well … but we’ve been waging an all-out war on American democracy.
