Nixon.
Reagan.
Dubbya.
Trump.

Who will stand in 10 years as the president who was Really The Worst?


#4

I feel like we already knew he’d done this. Is it that this is the first hard evidence?


#5

I have it in my heart that it will be Trump, hands down. It’s the ignorance, the self-interest above all, in which he acts that makes me believe this.


#6

The Trump movies are going to be brutal.

Assuming society still exists to make movies.

It’s long-accepted as historical fact, AFAIAA. Or at least it was in the history courses I took.

Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

But Clinton got a blowjob, libtards!


#12

Are any of the guys involved still alive?


#13

Well, there is Shrub (aka Dubya), you know. But I kind of think of him as a piss-ant of history, the enabler of true evil in the form of Cheney and his henchmen. Shrub was really just a mean frat boy, in the end.

Kissenger is. As is Anna Chennault. The rest of the people that are named in the NYT article are all dead.


#15

I wonder what a fan of Nixon, Reagan & W would think about this…


#16

…and Henry Kissinger is Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy mentor. Sigh.


#17

People have been calling for a tribunal against old Hank for the last 40+ years. He’s way too well connected to have to worry about that sort of thing though.


#18

Most of the senior figures of the GW Bush administration were GOP junior staffers during the Nixon years.


#19

Like these two arseholes:

These two who went to prison for Watergate are still around, at least.


#21

It’s far too transparent that there is no rule of law, but rather rule by an elite class. Kissinger should be in prison, and should have been there for a long, long time.
