8. THEY’RE BOTH BULLIESA bully is defined as “a blustering browbeating person; especially one habitually cruel to others who are weaker.” Certainly the German government under Hitler acted as a bully. They bullied Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals. They bullied other weaker countries into multiple concessions until they eventually sparked World War II.
Trump seems to be more of bully on a personal level. An obvious example is the way he took pot shots at GOP hopeful Carly Fiorina’s appearance (“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president. I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”). He even dared mock a disabled reporter. He insults, interrupts, over-talks, sues or fires anyone who gets in his way. It remains to be seen how this trait will manifest if he inherits the Oval Office.
