He is right… sort of, but the hypocrisy is mind numbing coming from Tucker Carlson and Trump Fox News. It is totally fascist to just start locking people up without due process.

When I heard that mock trial from Chris Christie against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 RNC I was initially dumbfounded. My thoughts were something to the effect of if Trump wins this thing we’re going to be a Banana Republic. It caught on fast and fascist fever spread like the plague and is far too often celebrated amongst the Trump-right, until it’s turned against them of course.
