When the argument is excessive it does not work properly.
Of course this is false.
Brexit is the same type of stance as Trump — I typed Tramp first — and no one would imagine themselves saying May — or anyone as for that — is the reincarnation of Hitler.
Trump is a populist demagogue and nothing else like Berlusconi on the right or the late President of Venezuela for the left.
Most of the time, if populist demagogues win they leave behind them a tremendous mess.
