“Dems failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia. Great job Karen Handel! It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, congratulating former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel for managing to claw her way into a runoff after Democrat Jon Ossoff finished with 48% of the vote, just shy of the 50% he needed for an outright victory.

Robert Schenkkan: First of all, I prefer the word “authoritarian” to “fascist.” And I don’t think Trump is a fascist. He is an oligarch. He is wealthy and only interested in making more money. I don’t think he has a political ideology at all. But we are already shifting to authoritarianism because Trump is playing by the authoritarian playbook: You stoke people’s fears, you demonize and scapegoat your opposition and racial minorities, then set yourself in contrast as the one person who can protect the people. And then you try to consolidate power, which Trump has tried to do by intimidating the judiciary with unacceptable comments and browbeat the free press. This is all standard operating procedure that goes back a long way. Could the authoritarianism depicted in the play actually happen? Absolutely yes. The only thing in the way is a conscious electorate that pushes back, the way it pushed back, for example, when the Republicans tried to repeal Obamacare. A radical ideology can’t be translated into legislation and public policy without the buy-in of a majority of the citizenry. As long as the citizenry refuses to normalize this, it won’t happen.
