I'm a writer/film theorist. Check out my articles on Pixar, Harry Potter, Back to the Future, Die Hard, politics, and more!

I don't like Mr. Trump. I mean, there are people that know him personally and I feel sorry for them. Think about his presence. I had a nightmare that I met him. He smiled at me like a rapist. My face just looked like this:

But anyways, what is tyranny? According to Google, it is "cruel and oppressive government or rule". This might sound too crazy to say that we would be living under a tyranny during the Trump presidency. But there are several signs of tyranny and I think a lot of them work well with Trump.

To avoid bias, I intentionally chose a Listverse article published in 2009, so the signs you will read in this article are from this Listverse article by Jon Roland.

1. Control of public information and opinion. It... leads to putting out false or misleading information.

First of all, we know that a lot of people get their news from Facebook. According to WYFF News, in over two weeks, 38% of Republican-leaning pages released partly-completely false news and 19% with Democrats. This is a lot of fake news, but it seems like Republicans were much more misinformed while they were voting.

But that's not Trump himself. That's just his dumbass voters.


And here's the thing: Trump has also given out false information himself. Look at what he put on his Twitter a few months ago:

The man who ran on stage did not have ties to ISIS. It wasn't true. And this was his response when it wasn't pointed out to him:

"What do I know about it? All I know is what's on the Internet."

What. The. F**k.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is going to be our 45th president of the United States. The false tweet got nearly 11,000 retweets from stupid Trump supporters thinking all of the stuff he says is true. Because they get their news from an orange bulls**t artist.

And this is not the only case. Look at this Tweet:

Okay, well, there's not much there, but the picture he had in his Tweet was this:

Now, right off the bat, that seems a little bit unlikely. Because honestly the amount of blacks being killed by police and white people is only 3% put together? And the amount of whites killed by blacks is 81%? Apparently, he retweeted this from a racist.

Again, he was told by a Fox News reporter that the statistic was false and the percentage of whites killed by blacks is only 14-15% as opposed to his 81% statistic.

And what's Trump's genius response?

"Hey, Bill--Bill. Am I gonna check every statistic? ...You know what? Fine. But this came out of radio shows and everything else."

I mean, I'm an unprofessional writer with only about 335,000+ reads and even I still try to fact check as often as I can. In my entire life, I might have accidentally released false information maybe twice, but it's a much bigger disappointment when you see a presidential candidate doing it and then making stupid excuses.

And as if all of this wasn't enough, Trump has also made the claim that Hillary Clinton wants to repeal the Second Amendment. This is not true AT ALL. It's not close to true. I didn't support her, but she was advocating gun control, not making guns ILLEGAL.

But anyways--moving on.

2. Voter Fraud, Claims of Fraud

This claim was utter bulls**t. It was a baseless claim and it also works with the first one. There is literally no evidence for this claim and it is completely messed up for a president-elect to be tweeting bulls**t like this. It is completely unpresidential.

The face of a political leader

4. Usurpation of undelegated powers

According to the Listverse article, it "soon leads to the deprivation of rights of minorities and individuals", which is pretty accurate in Trump's case.

Why does he always look so dumb?
Why does he always look so dumb?

He wants to build a wall on our border to keep out illegal immigrants and deports them, calling them "rapists", drug dealers, and criminals. Now, this wall would be extremely unlikely and impractical and useless.

So, instead of a pathway to citizenship for the many immigrants who, first of all, work here and don't kill people, Trump wants to deport them. All of this is dumb and would require money he would have to pull out of his sweet and sour chicken ass.

I love Rush Hour.
I love Rush Hour.

You can tell me that the illegals don't have a right to be here. Okay, well, Trump is also pro-life, which takes away the rights of a mother to choose what to do with their bodies. See, Trump wants to make women do things with their bodies that they don't want to do. Which is the same thing with the Rockettes, basically.

Trump also wants to rob us of our First Amendment rights, as he wants to imprison or even revoke the citizenship of flag burners. Therefore, taking away our Freedom of Speech.

See? Taking away rights. Now, I wouldn't burn a flag but this is a Constitutional right that this man-child wants to take away from us.

8. Suppression of investigators and whistleblowers. When people who try to uncover high level wrongdoing are threatened.

Before Trump won, he was losing in the polls and no one expected him to win. So, he made some bulls**t excuse about how the election was rigged

But since Trump won, he has been opposed to a recount. Why is that? I mean, I know they didn't find anything, but if he was so sure that the election was rigged, why was he criticizing Jill Stein for trying to get a recount?

10. Subversion of internal checks and balances. This involves the appointment to key positions of persons...who are then induced to do illegal things

Oh my god his finger is very short.
Oh my god his finger is very short.

Okay, now, this hasn't happened yet, but it could easily happen and other bad things can happen given the people that Trump has been appointing to his cabinet. Firstly, he selected Steve Bannon as his chief strategist, a white nationalist who has said this in the past:

"Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power."

Taken right after he took off his white hood.

He also chose Kris Kobach as immigration advisor, and he wants to put Muslims in internment camps. He chose Jeff Sessions as attorney general, and he was considered too racist for a judicial appointment 30 years ago. Trump chose Mike Pompeo to be his CIA director, and he's an anti-gay, anti-Muslim bigot.

So, it seems like this is very likely to happen and there's gonna be at least some sort of bad and unconstitutional s**t that will happen.

15. Conversion of rights into privileges

This is a quote from our president-elect and it fits very well with change rights into privileges:

"Immigration is a privilege, and we should not let anyone into this country who doesn't support our communities -- all of our communities, every single one of them."

And that's everything on the Listverse article. There are other articles, such as this one. It is biased against Trump, but it is pretty accurate in showing tyranny signs. The amount of danger is unpresidented.

Twitter has a built-in spell-check. How does this happen?

And Inauguration Day is in only two weeks, and this is what Trump said on his website.

Okay, first off, Mexico has said multiple times that they won't pay for the wall, and I highly doubt that a reality show host can get them to pay in two weeks.

And that's it!
