I should change my name to Roland.
Roland was a warrior from the land of the midnight sun
With a Thompson gun for hire, fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody frayThrough 66 and seven they fought the Congo war
With their fingers on their triggers, knee-deep in gore
For days and nights they battled, the Bantu to their knees
They killed to earn their living, and to help out the CongoleseRoland the Thompson gunner
Roland the Thompson gunnerHis comrades fought beside him, Van Owen and the rest
But of all the Thompson gunners, Roland was the best
So the CIA decided they wanted Roland dead
That son of a bitch Van Owen blew off Roland's headRoland the headless Thompson gunner (time, time, time for another peaceful war)
Norway's greatest son (time stands still for Roland, 'til he evens up the score)They can still see his headless body stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gunRoland searched the continent for the man who done him in
He found him in Mombasa, in a barroom drinking gin
Roland aimed his Thompson gun, he didn't say a word
But he blew Van Owen's body, from there to JohannesburgRoland the headless Thompson gunner
Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Roland the headless Thompson gunner (talking about the man)
Roland the headless Thompson gunnerThe eternal Thompson gunner, still wandering through the night
Now it's ten years later, but he still keeps up the fight
In Ireland, in Lebanon, in Palestine and Berkeley
Patty Hearst heard the burst of Roland's Thompson gun and bought it

I don't care, if I get one, I'm going to name it Tommy!

Trump is using reasoning similar to what Hitler was using when he also wanted to destroy democracy.  His intent was also to empower and embolden a despot - himself.  By also subverting the German Congress and Judiciary.  Since the legal system in Germany had ruled so often against him.

Why did Hitler become powerful?  His supporters were adults who are still children.  Who were enthralled by his soundbites, machismo, and hate.

Facts that get ignored.  Notice who in his family long longer shows up or campaigns for him.  Where is Melania today.  Is she still alive?  When is he divorce?  How many times has he cheated on her?
