Donald Trump’s comment on his Twitter feed that “racial tensions have got worse not better” and that this is not the America we all wish for is the height of hypocrisy.

Who would be responsible for the increased racial tensions with comments about Blacks committing crime taken from a bogus website, a proposal to ban Muslims and a desire to pigeonhole all Mexicans as rapists?

Donald Trump that's who.

The Donald much prefers the big and the strong shatter the weak You know by Donald Trump’s standards Pontius Pilate was probably not such a bad man after all.

Trump might say Pilate put down that rebellion against Rome rule started by that Jewish long haired lout Jesus who he eventually crucified. King of the Jews he mocked him as before a good old fashioned scourging and crucifixion.

Tough on terrorism was old Pontius, tough on the causes of terrorism, a man Trump would definitely agree with given his recent support for tyrants, dictators and megalomaniacs.

There may be something to it. Trump’s first wife Ivana reported to her divorce lawyer, Michael Kennedy, that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler's collected speeches, “My New Order,” which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. “

She also noted that a Trump cousin always clicked his heels and shouted “Heil Hitler” when meeting Trump. Hmm...

Trump is no Hitler but he does admire strong men and makes a fetish out of mentioning them

But even Hitler has his fine points as Trump might say. The employment rate soared, the roads and autobahns were built, the country regained its pride - what matter if 60 million people died?

Holocaust survivor Adina P. Sella. 80, says Trump would be no match for Hitler.

She told the Chicago Reader "I'm not afraid of Donald Trump. Donald Trump will burn himself out. He's an impulsive, egotistical narcissist. Even Hitler knew to come on slowly. He had a very solid foundation before he started to be such a megalomaniac. Trump is one already."

That could be true. After all The Donald also thinks Saddam Hussein is the business. He murdered hundreds of thousands of his own people, used poison gas and chemical weapons against women, children and babies and carried on a reign of terror for decades.

But Trump says he knew how to deal with dissent, no time for silly trials and due process - off with their heads after some good old fashioned torture first.

"He (Saddam) was a bad guy -- really bad guy. But you know what? He did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn't read them the rights. They didn't talk. They were terrorists. Over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism," Trump said.

Then there’s Kim Jong Il the psychopath who leads North Korea - 3.5 million people by some accounts died in a Famine there caused by his family But to Trump he’s a grand lad who doesn’t wait for trials or any of that nonsense

“It’s incredible. He wiped out the uncle, he wiped out this one, that one. This guy doesn’t play games.” says the Trumpster his admiration clear.

He has also expressed admiration for Putin, most corrupt leader in history, Ghaddafi another wonderful despot, basically any strong man who catches his fantasy.

I know Hillary Clinton did not cover herself in glory in the email matter this week but cripes, it is a very different proposition to letting Trump loose on the world.

Suggested Trump slogans: “Diplomacy is putting the cart before the horse,” or “Shoot first,” “Kill ‘em all, let God decide.” Which of these slogans might he adopt?

All three I suspect - it is getting that bad.
