This is surprising coming from the Washington Examiner.  That's been like a Trump propaganda site for four years.  

And as such, it is meant not to encourage people who would vote against Trump, but to alarm and mobilize people who would vote for him.

Yeah, I didn't want to advertise it as a Road to Damascus conversion by them.  Its just as much as possible they need to recognize and despair.

We were scared of Nixon because he was all too good at being President. And really, he could have skated out of Watergate if he had  just thrown a couple of guys overboard after the initial story broke. People say he was too loyal, I think it was just hubris that they would never be able to touch him. And honestly, if the tapes hadn't shown up, he still might have walked - so it was a pretty close call. 

That’s one bright spot about despots: no matter how scarily effective they are, there’s always one Achilles’ heel that can bring them down. Nixon’s hubris is a prime example of that.

The difference with Trump, though, is that he is one big Achilles heel, and that’s not a bug. To the red hats, that’s his most attractive feature. And that’s why they will never—can never—desert him.

well, don't get too cocky - Franco managed 40 years and a natural death before Spain got a fresh start.

Franco had some military acumen at least.

In our timeline, "Macho Man" is not about gays, but instead refers to a whiny guy that wears make-up, a wig, a girdle, lifts, and has to pay for sex.

Trump might have problems with his social media campaign?
