First, Hitler wasn’t democratically elected.

No, not my point at all. My point is that being democratically elected doesn’t mean you can’t become a dictator. So revolting against the voters and the constitution might also be necessary. (Not saying that is the case for Trump, he’s just incompetent.)

Also, Hitler indeed wasn’t technically elected directly, but his party got so many seats in the election that he got appointed as chancellor. So, in a way, it was a democratic appointment.
