Jeh Johnson: I hope Americans will come to realize Trump presidency was a 'failed experiment'

Former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said Sunday that he hopes Americans will come to realize that the Trump presidency was a "failed experiment."

Johnson, who served as Homeland Security secretary under former President Obama, told CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" that he thinks history will not remember the Trump presidency and "those who supported it kindly" even if the Senate decides not to convict Trump of inciting the Capitol riots earlier this month.

"Four years ago, we engaged in a very dangerous experiment by electing someone who was utterly unqualified for office, who had no moral or legal compass and frankly had impulses toward fascism and autocracy," Johnson said.

"My hope is that as time passes Americans will realize this was a failed experiment and we should never try it again," he continued. "Just look at the consequences of that over the last four years.

Most of us realize this but the fact is Trump never would have been president but for an archaic thing know as the electoral college.

3. I hope I never hear again in my lifetime

"we need to run the government like a business."

Hopefully Trump was a twofer - neither celebrities or business people should run the country. Although we didn't learn our lesson about D list celebrities with Reagan. And make no mistake about it, Reagan was just Trump with a smile and a nicer personality. He fucked up a pandemic also - remember AIDS? He tried to ignore it and ignore science just like Trump.

5. Fuck that!

History better well remember the Trump Presidency! If we don’t remember, we’re doomed to repeat it.

10. Yes. Let's not run the government like a business.

It isn't one. Can we finally put that completely discredited cliche to bed?
