MAGAt USA?

Will the present era (2016-20??) in the USA be named by future Historians as MAGAt USA, much like Germany in the 30's is known as Nazi Germany? What do you think this era in Central North America will be called?

3. I hope you are right about the briefness..

Hitler ruled Nazi Germany for 10 years or so.

8. As many problems as this country has right now, Trump is not Hitler and this isn't Nazi Germany.

As the previous poster mentioned, it'll be known as a brief diversion from the norm. Nazi Germany is known how it is because it started WWII and executed the Holocaust.

5. A brief diversion, hopefully but the long lasting effects of the

tragically misguided, corrupt policies will last a very long time. The damage to our reputation as to trust of the United States by its long time allies may take a very long time to regain. I am 82 and the sickening environmental damage to our country will certainly not be repaired in my lifetime perhaps during my childrens lives.
I do not think that historians will treat this administration kindly nor should they.

2. obama ushered in the transition from white male domination to a pluralistic democracy

donnie and the magats are merely a temporary blip, part of the inevitable backlash.

taking the long view, america is marching inexorably towards a pluralistic society where whites are a minority and no longer have wildly disproportionate control over government, business, and society.

nothing comes easily, nothing comes quickly, but it comes in time.

donnie and the magats are merely part of the backlash to that inevitability. they will go away and crawl back under their rocks eventually.


they are not an era themselves, they are a merely footnote in obama's era.

6. I appreciate your positivity.

We have a democracy so far, if only we can keep and expand it. -to misquote Ben Franklin badly.

9. Like so many dark episodes in our past, we'll rise above

MAGAt might be the label.
