Michelle Goldberg: Even Nixon in His Darkest Days Didn’t Pose as Much a Danger to the Country as Trump

‘It’s breathtaking what we’ve become accustomed to, the level of dysfunction we’ve become accustomed to’

RUSH EXCERPT:

GOLDBERG: "I mean, I think that if we had a sane and rational and decent Congress it would be near impeachment territory. And even Nixon in his darkest days was not as erratic, unstable and didn’t pose as much as a danger to his country as Trump poses. It’s breathtaking what we’ve become accustomed to, the level of dysfunction we’ve become accustomed to. And every single — good for Bob corker for speaking out. But every congressman, you know, senator or congressman who agrees with him who thinks that the president cannot be trusted with a blackberry should be doing everything that they can to get between him and the nuclear codes. And instead we just see this unbelievable cowardice."
