1. The whole "gate" thing had actually dropped from the lexicon...

with the news orgs finally getting tired of everything being labeled " (whatever)gate" since the 1970's

So, of course, Trump resurrected it.

4. Trump makes Nixon look like Jimmy Carter.

Looking at all the shit Trump gets away with daily, it's hard to believe that Nixon had to go because he lied about a little break-in.

8. Watergate was so named because

that was the name of the building in which the Democratic National Committee was housed, and thus where the break-in took place: the Watergate Office Building. The Watergate Complex has 6 buildings, including coop apartments, a hotel, and the office building.

The “gate” was detached and came to b added to other political scandals. It has no meaning; it’s just a tag that has come to indicate “scandal.”
