Though there is no real basis to credit Lewis with When Fascism Comes To America, It Will Be Wrapped in the Flag and Carrying a Cross, the adage rings true.
I suspect that monsters—of whatever stripe that is Comrade Trump—cannot touch a cross without bursting into flames. And to add some more fuel to the fire (see what I did there?) that was at a speech to the Federation of Independent Businesses and was supposed to be on economic or something, but turned into something more along the lines of the Democrats and Latinos infesting America’s vital juices and what not, and then concluded with the flag hugging.
So I give the performance 3 Sinclair Lewises.
