    Literally Hitler won the vote, not Hitler.
    Literally Hitler is anybody you disagree with in the slightest on any issue whatsoever, Hitler was just some dude with a 'stache who toured Europe with the boys.

    You're sounding a lot like literally Hitler to me, Caligula.

    Wow Akar I can't believe it, YOU'RE literally Hitler right now. I'm going to report you to the Politburo for reeducation.

    There seems to be an omission from your poll.

    Positively Churchillian. (No, seriously though, I'm actually getting worried now.)

    Nah, Trump is just following the Reagan school of Republican presidenting. Except instead of sitting around eating jelly beans by the handful and fondling himself he's threatening nuclear war and becoming steadily illiterate.

    What do you mean Churchillian?

    I mean that he didn't win the war. The voting war isn't as important as the actual war.

    Churchill was basically shoved out of politics after the war because he supported invading the Soviet Union right after the war ended to end communism right away while the allies still had the advantage of the atom bomb. Needless to say this was not a popular stance with the bombed and depleted European nations and his career in politics basically died after the war. I assume that's what he's implying here, but I can unequivocally state that I would much much much rather have Churchill in charge right now than that Donald.

    Churchillian in the sense of being supremely eloquent, elevating prose to poetry, employing the English language as the architects of medieval cathedrals employed stone and wood to create edifices that will stand for all eternity (with the possible exception of Notre Dame, alas), inspiring and uniting his people through the sheer incandescent brilliance of his words (I rather admire Churchill. Can you tell?). Ascribing Churchillianism to our President Trump was meant to be sardonic (as I'm sure you can tell).

    I think the main motivation for kicking Churchill was really that specifically Britain was bombed to and people were eating rations until about 1947.

    I just didn't get what Churchillian meant. But it was in the context of giving a speech.
