Brad gives a preview of his new book by discussing how some of Trump’s tactics and myths are comparable to what Hitler used to gain power in Germany. Brad is careful to point out that his comparison is just that – a comparison. He is not arguing that Trump and Hitler are identical. Rather, his argument is that Trump’s Big Lie and the myth that the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago was unconstitutional and illegal are resonant with the Stab-in-the-Back myths Hitler used in Germany to convince his followers that their country had been stolen from them and only he could return it to glory.
