There are 3 comments on Trump and Nixon: Separated at Birth?

  1. I want to remind that Nixon was a mass murderer: see Ellsberg’s book on the Vietnam war on the details. You cannot say this about Trump (yet?).

  2. Looks like the premise of the course has already provided the judgement and truly doesn’t allow for open discussion. I’m assuming most presidents/candidates can be compared to others as all are/were flawed, have their own leadership style, biases and country/worldview. Did the quote from the Evergreen student calling POTUS a “sleazebag” really need to be included? No matter what you think of the person, the position should garner some form of respect. I’d like to read about more classes that teach critical thinking and civility. That’s the best way to educate students for life’s challenges and success.

  3. No mention of: Nixon’s: passage of Title IX, the creation of the EPA, opening of China, visit to Moscow, ending of Kennedy and LBJ’s war in Vietnam or his DESEGREGATION of southern public schools. Terrible reporting, framed to be “cool” and “relatable” in a culture that favors headlines over real history.
