Very true. The left has painted Trump as a stupid Hitler. It would be akin to one of the three stooges taking on the role of Hitler.
BTW, the popularity of men like Chavez is of no surprise. All you have to do is declare that you will redistribute wealth to all the poor folk and seek social justice and you will have them eating out of your hand. Hitler also followed this route.
