The argumentum ad Hitlerum

ABC News’ Terry Moran: Trump Inauguration Speech Had ‘Anti-Semitic Overtones’

He didn't like the "America First" reference.

Nor did Chris Matthews or Rachel Maddow.

They have gone for the bait from day one.

They don't even know when they're being played.

Krauthammer sees the point of it, I think.

For many people around the world, the British in particular, that [America First] is quite a resonant phrase, and it says to them, to the free world, since Harry Truman and Eisenhower, we constructed a world where we carried a lot of you—economically, militarily, etc. 

That game is over, you are on your own. 

That is an amazing message for an inaugural address.  

We heard it on the campaign, but that is policy now and it’s going to have a huge effect around the world.”

Coming from him, this is not an expression of approval.

That he despised Obama and all his works does not make him a Trump fan.
