7. It's really disheartening to know that he has absolutely done this. We will need "Trump reforms,"

as happened after Nixon. But apparently even those created some new problems. It will take much longer to discover just how thoroughly Trump has rat-fucked this country. Add all the judges he's pushed through. Woe is us.

Largely driven by the revelations of Watergate, lawmakers in the 1970s passed a series of "good government" bills designed to repair the political process and rejuvenate public confidence in their elected officials. But holes in the new laws, and the lengthy investigations the reforms sometimes spawned, also deepened voter cynicism.
