A Vox Political reader recently complained because this picture is such an extreme close-up. The point is that the microphone makes him look like Hitler, of course.

Farage is a man who thinks there is no line he cannot cross.

His odious brand of politics is on the rise across the western world, he seems to think, based on the success of his Brexit campaign and his support for US President-elect Donald Trump.

And what kind of politics would that be? According to the Guardian, “Farage appeared to welcome the prospect of more surprise electoral successes across Europe, where some pundits have raised the idea of a National Front victory in France’s presidential vote in 2017.

“’Brexit, and now Trump, and now the wagons roll on to the rest of Europe for all the elections next year,’ Farage said. ‘This is a really exciting time. As someone who has now become a demolitions expert I’m thoroughly enjoying what’s going on.’

So he refers to the first black president of the United States as a “creature”; thinks sexual assault is a suitable subject for humour; welcomes the idea of a victory for a far-right, racist party like the National Front; his “wagons roll” rhetoric is eerily reminiscent of Hitler’s blitzkrieg; and he speaks of himself as an expert in “demolitions”.

This is an evil man who wants to see democracy burn. Let’s stop him.

Nigel Farage has claimed to be “the catalyst” for the rise of Donald Trump, referred to Barack Obama as a “creature”, and joked about Trump’s alleged sexual assaults on women.

In a jubilant interview with TalkRadio from Spain, before he was due to fly to the US, Farage joked several times about the idea of the US president-elect sexually assaulting Theresa May when he met her.

Farage, the interim Ukip leader, was increasingly open in his backing for Trump after he spoke at at a rally for the Republican candidate in Mississippi. Trump himself referred to the shock vote for Brexit in the UK as an inspiration for his campaign.

During the occasionally raucous late-evening phone interview with presenter James Whale on Wednesday, Farage was asked if he had “a lot to answer for” over Trump’s victory.

“I’m the catalyst for the downfall of the Blairites, the Clintonites, the Bushites, and all these dreadful people who work hand in glove with Goldman Sachs and everybody else, have made themselves rich, and ruined our countries,” Farage replied. “I couldn’t be happier.”

Farage continued: “That Obama creature – loathsome individual – he couldn’t stand our country. He said we’d be at the back of the queue, didn’t he?”

Farage then joked about Trump meeting May, saying, “don’t touch her for goodness sake”, before laughing. Asked about the likely behaviour of Trump, who has been accused of a series of sexual assaults, which he denies, Farage added: “If it comes to it, I could be there as the responsible adult role, to make sure everything’s OK.”
