Donald Trump - the president of precedents, all of them bad

Supporters of defeated Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro have had their very own January 6th moment as they smash up the Brazilian Congress, Supreme Court and Presidential Palace, in a large-scale and violent riot that is described as having "striking similarities" to the January 6th 2021 insurrection in Washington DC (even down to the "Make Brazil Great Again" hats and t-shirts, which Bolsonaro himself also like to wear).

Put this down as yet another thing that would never have happened without the precedent of Donald Trump.
