So he wasn't democratically elected Chancellor. So the NSDAP had their own coup by staging the Reichstag fire and enacting the enabling act and placing Hitler in power. You're finally catching up to history.<quoted text>
" On election day, 6 March 1933, the NSDAP's share of the vote increased to 43.9%, and the party acquired the largest number of seats in parliament. Hitler's party failed to secure an absolute majority, necessitating another coalition with the DNVP.
Day of Potsdam and the Enabling Act
On 21 March 1933, the new Reichstag was constituted with an opening ceremony at the Garrison Church in Potsdam. This "Day of Potsdam" was held to demonstrate unity between the Nazi movement and the old Prussian elite and military. Hitler appeared in a morning coat and humbly greeted President von Hindenburg.

To achieve full political control despite not having an absolute majority in parliament, Hitler's government brought the Ermächtigungsgesetz (Enabling Act) to a vote in the newly elected Reichstag. The act gave Hitler's cabinet full legislative powers for a period of four years and (with certain exceptions) allowed deviations from the constitution. The bill required a two-thirds majority to pass. Leaving nothing to chance, the Nazis used the provisions of the Reichstag Fire Decree to keep several Social Democratic deputies from attending; the Communists had already been banned."
Yes, Hitler ran in election. Came in second but manipulated the laws due to having the largest number of seats in parliament so his cabinet gained full control.
Go ahead and tell me again how the US unseated Hitler in a coup.
Hey, the secret to holes is that when you find that you're in one, stop digging.
You're frickin' hilarious.
