“He was clearly loved by women. He was a guy’s guy. He has all that virility. He also had amazing fashion sense, right, that whole thing with the uniforms. I’m fascinated by Mussolini.”

Donald Trump put his innate douche-iness on display on the world stage last week at the NATO Summit in Brussels, when he was caught on camera shoving the prime minister of Montenegro out of his way. The ugly moment when he put a hand on the prime minister to move him out of his way was followed by an even uglier moment when Donald moved to the front of the group and then stuck his chin out in a show of dominance a la Mussolini, the fascist Italian dictator known as “Il Duce.”
It’s more than perfect that Il Douche, the wannabe autocrat, channeled Il Duce, history’s most famous fascist.
