I think itís the alt-right that makes him dangerous, more than anything inherent in Donald Trump.
In much the same way that the aimed gun in the hand is more dangerous that the electrical impulse from brain to muscle? Perhaps we should adapt that old reflexive refrain trotted out in defense of instruments of death: Deluded insurrectionists don't kill people; those deluding them kill people.

The orange thing's intransigence in maintaining the lie is only ramping up the danger. The chief liar in a nation steeped in and subsumed under a sea of lies, could at least dial things back a little if its narcissism were not in the way. With an unambiguous admission of the truth from the Top, the supportive media dependent on advertisers at least couldn't ignore it.
