hhmm, seems H.L. Mencken had the gift of foreseeing – read more here

Shite such as this (ahem . . .) ‘quote’ plays right into the hands of Trump.
Mencken’s actual quote was:-
“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
. . . which is punchy enough in its own right, without some fucking liar seeking to embellish it to make it better fit his or her own viewpoint.
I can just hear the odious twat and his PR machine shouting “Fake News!”
Too right! It wasn’t broke, until they fixed it.
Especially Mencken’s exquisite choice of the verb ‘adorn’ in that last sentence.
The moment it ceases to be a real quote, its impact is lost.
“Why are people so fucking thick, eh?”

Tis now the age of the dedicated letharge who shall throw to the winds hard won liberties gained by forefathers;
For ’tis now the time for others to be charged wih the heavy responsibility of exercising my wishes, confident that their desires will be akin to mine.
But what of this. . ?
Tis not representative of my wishes. For ’tis surely now the time for ejecting childish playthings from perambulators.
What of those prominent, but false, Gods who, from positions on high, assured the people they would seek exile if their and our objective was not won ?
Wherefore art they now ?
Still amongst us.
This is democracy ?
Tis time for a revolution.
