When America’s democracy goes down in flames like a Boeing Max 8, future historians will investigate the disaster. They’ll dig through the rubble of Trump’s presidency, seeking to learn how a once great nation crashed to earth so soon after a new pilot took the controls.
This aircraft had many pilots through the years, some better than others. There were smooth flights and scary ones. Some of the pilots flew high. Others were barely able to pull the plane out of a steep dive. One was so bad his pilot’s license was revoked.
