The only way the administration of ‘President’ Trump could be seen as a positive thing, would be if its ethical madness causes subsequent generations to be determined never to allow it to happen again. The Teapot Dome Scandal, the Harding Administration, and Watergate itself now look almost quaint compared to what is playing out before our eyes.
As usual, Eugene Robinson chronicles our times for those coming generations, and this quotation within his piece is the only way to come close to describing what is happening as we speak.
“I spent years as a foreign correspondent in Latin America. To say we are being governed like a banana republic is an insult to banana republics. It’s that bad, and no one should pretend otherwise.”
