John Dean looks confused

John Dean on CNN looks confused. Back in his day, they would have long ago run Trump out of office on a rail. He flat out says what we already know is worse than Nixon. Then the "younger" panel has to explain to him how Fox, Twitter, and general assholes like Jordan and Nunes change things. You almost feel sorry for Dean. The new America, where a crook openly does crimes in the White House, is something he can't understand. Join the club, John.

2. John Dean is projecting his own decency.

He is the kind of person who doesn't understand when people act like assholes.

4. Like every decent human being, he left the Republican Party long ago

I think Dean can't even relate to the assholery that's going on now in the GOP.

9. and yet, during the bush years

he wrote a really good book, Conservatives Without Conscience, from which my takeaway is that republicans are authoritarians. did i add the sociopath back then, or only since trump? I don't know. but he shouldn't seem confused because of all people he saw this coming.

5. No, John Dean is 81 years old.

He is from The Silent Generation.

6. Boomers were all under 30

during Watergate. 1946 to 1964. John Dean was born in the late 30's. Nixon and his cronies were all greatest generation or silent generation.

Kids and this "boomer" business. Me and my Gen X brethren have been cleaning up their mess for far longer than anyone else.

11. I'm not aware that we made a mess.

I thought this slow-motion train wreck we're in started with Reagan. Although I must admit to not knowing what demographic put him over the top.

I need to Google some examples of okay boomer. I actually think it's kind of amusing, from the little I know about it.

15. It wasn't just the Boomers* who voted for Reagan, the two older generations did as well.

It's not all on your generations shoulders.



Edit to add: *By majority

17. I see a clear "generation gap" in your chart

There is a break at age 30.

A minority of those under 30 do not support Reagan. In 1980, that would be folks born after 1950 - meaning boomers.

It was the boomer's elder who brought Reagan into office, not the Boomer generation.

16. I'm certainly confused. WHAT is the reason that anybody finds him appealing -

would vote for him?

Unless they’re that gullible, or stupid, willfully uninformed (Pox Noise viewers), racist, sexist, jingoistic, homophobic, or as petty and vindictive and vulgar as he is.

My Trump supporting uncle isn't stupid. He just thinks as long as he's making money in the stock market everything else is gravy.

22. Interesting that Dean just addressed this on CNN

He acknowledges the conservatives have moved far to the right and deny reality. Trump would have been booted fifty years ago and Nixon would have survived today.
