27. Best case scenario

is that we get a more "conventional" President next time and things pretty much go back to "business as usual" (though hopefully we're all paying more attention to what is going on in the WH more) and most people come to historically view Trump as a complete aberration never to be repeated again. Or, worst case scenario, we get a ever-devolving succession of Trump-like Presidents until the WH is literally nothing but a corrupt and dysfunctional joke that is taken serious by nobody here or internationally. The good news is that we have serious and high-minded people on the Democratic/progressive side whom are infinitely more unlikely to be anywhere near as massively incompetent and/or corrupt as Trump and will support and will appoint competent and hard-working people to their Cabinet and do what they can to help advance progressive issues. The bad news is that the Republicans are the only place where Trump and Trump-like candidates can ever hope to find a home and Republicans know how to suppress and otherwise tamper with elections in their favor (and refuse to hold their candidates and elected officials accountable for virtually anything).

Frankly, what I'm worried most is how the Senate is going to look by the time Mitch McConnell is no longer in office or is no longer Majority Leader.
