Briefly noted

Andrew Roberts (in the Sunday Telegraph) does a tour through the Trump-Mussolini comparisons, but like many conservative writers, he ignores the more obvious comparison of Trump with Silvio Berlusconi (seen above at AC Milan's match with Inter on Sunday). Could it be that Mussolini is the preferred comparator because it's easier, at least if one resorts to the argumentative style of Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism, to then claim that Trump is not conservative?
