We are all in deep trouble with Trump, right-wingers included, but Congress, especially Republicans, can limit the damage by insisting on decency, honesty and fair-dealing from his administration. This will require principle and backbone, two characteristics in short supply in Republican leaders like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan.
It took resolute and honorable Republicans to bring down Richard Nixon. That was a long time ago, during a period when civil discourse and cooperation between the parties was at a much higher level than it is today.
What’s especially frightening is that compared to Trump, Nixon was a decent fellow.
