Tricky Dick’s equal finally found?

It took 43 years, but it would appear that at long last America finally found Richard M. Nixon’s equal – not that I’m surprised, mind you.

I know I should give the current U.S. president the benefit of the doubt, and I will, but I won’t hold my breath.

Also, please bear with me for reposting this clip, originally posted a couple of weeks ago (give it a go, it’s really, really good):

Comparing president-elect Donald John Trump to crooked president Richard Milhous Nixon would be doing both grave injustice.

After all, the latter didn’t make a total disgrace of himself until he had served more than one full term in office*, as well as several as VP.
