'Blest if I believe such a Poll Parrot as you was ever learned to speak!'
Good analogy, and a useful one.
I've seen so much wrongheaded commentary the last few months about the similarities between Trump and Hitler. The many false analogies we see only obscure the real threat, so I think the more we know about the Nazi era the better. Quisling is sort of a minor figure in the whole thing, but at this point in our history, it is important to have an idea about what treason among high government officials looks like.
Does Marshal Pétain of 'Vichy' France qualify as well?
Well, I think it does, although we must remember that Petain played a very honorable role as a general in World War I, which puts him way ahead of Trump.
