SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH THIS ONE...:

Trump retweets Mussolini quote (Neetzan Zimmerman, 2/28/16, The Hill)

The GOP front-runner proudly highlighted early Sunday morning a striking quote attributed to him by a Twitter user: "It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep."

"@ilduce2016: "It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep." - @realDonaldTrump #MakeAmericaGreatAgain"

-- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2016

Trouble is, that quote is actually attributed to fascist Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.

Indeed, the username of the Trump follower who brought the quote to the billionaire businessman's attention --@ilduce2016 --was a likely giveaway that he was a staunch admirer of the Axis leader, as was his use of a photoshopped composite of Mussolini with Trump's iconic coiffure for his Twitter avatar.

"Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is a fallacy."  It more accurately captures his personality and appeal.
