Trump thinks any attack on him is an attack on America: Isn’t that the definition of a fascist? – Salon.com

Trump also spoke openly about the possibility that he might fire Mueller — an action that might well require firing Rosenstein first, and perhaps others in the Justice Department. Reportedly, Trump nearly did so last summer and was talked out of it by White House Counsel Don McGahn. He is clearly close to that fateful decision once again.

As they should be, the president’s threats against an independent legal system — one of the bedrocks of a democracy — have (again) been met with much public criticism and concern.

But Trump also signaled toward something even more ominous and worrisome in his tirades this week.

When the president claimed that Mueller and the FBI’s investigation into his affairs was “an attack on our country,” he christened himself a fascist leader in all but name.
