I asked ChatGPT

Why wasn't Hitler a balrog?

Hitler was not a balrog because balrogs are fictional creatures from the fantasy world of Middle-earth, created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Hitler was a real historical figure and the leader of Nazi Germany during World War II. He had no supernatural powers or abilities and was not a mythical creature.
James Errington

Why wasn't Sauron a balrog?

Sauron was not a balrog either because, like Hitler, Sauron is a fictional character from the fantasy world of Middle-earth created by J.R.R. Tolkien. In the story, Sauron was a powerful dark lord and the main antagonist of the "Lord of the Rings" series. Balrogs were powerful demons that served Sauron, but Sauron himself was not a balrog. He was a Maia, a spirit of fire and magic, and took on various forms throughout the story, including that of a giant flaming eye.

I'm not touching Quora again until they get rid of the "It's OK to be White" topic.

I’m being advertised a comedy podcast called quorators where the hosts discuss a different quora q each ep — much as you don’t need to click thru from the digest emails (or even open them) to get the best from this site, I will never actually listen to this podcast but the latest ep is a good one:

Q: Why does Putin always keep his right arm still when he walks, only swinging the left one?
A: Putin's way of walking comes from his training with the KGB
