You top president was a criminal that liked to abuse his power to attack his political rivals? How is Nixon anywhere near that list?

I only had time to skim your debate. Nixon does have some accomplishments as president. but to me being a massive criminal who abused the power of his office quite frequently seems disqualifying for being a good president, let alone the best president. 

Anyone forced to resign in disgrace because he was about to be impeached should not be on this list, in my opinion.

Bill Clinton should be up there with Nixon. Flawed men that worked to make changes to help the country.

Bill clinton wasn't forced to resign in disgrace. He lied about sex and then fully complied with the investigation. 

Nixon ordered men to break into the office of his political rivals. He ordered evidence covered up or destroyed. He ordered government agencies, such as the IRS, to go after his enemies. Bill Clinton and Nixon are in no way similar cases. Flawed and criminal abuse of power, are really the same thing.

1. Trump is unfit for office
The man rants and raves about nonsense and conspiracy theories. He has committed a number of crimes while in office. He is the most unfit president that america has ever had. 

2. Melania cried when Trump was elected
That's just a rumor. 

3. Trump colluded with Russia
This is well established fact. His team had over 100 contacts with russians they claimed never happened. This includes giving polling data to the russians and having a meeting with agents of the russian government in trump tower. 

4.Trump's impeachment
I'm not sure how this is a conspiracy theory. I'm guessing you mean the charges against him. But we now have conclusive proof he committed at least 4-5 crimes. So no, it really isn't.


5.Trump is racist
This is also well documented. Including, but not limited to, refusing to allow black people to live in his buildings, calling mexicans rapists, calling non white countries "shithole countries", etc.

Are whites not allowed to live in those shithole countries?

Can you get by with a spray-on tan? Maybe blackface?


Do these shithole countries do a DNA check at the border for the filthy EU gene?

He didn't order the break-in. He ordered the cover-up.

Bill Clinton was also a pretty good president. He might be my number 6.

It is hard to include Washington. He was awesome as a person and revolutionary leader. Probably my favorite American of all time. Just not president.

Calling countries that are primarily non white "shit hole countries" while simultaneously praising countries that are primarily white is racist. The full comment was:

Haiti? Why do we want people from Haiti here?" Then they got Africa. 'Why do we want these people from all these shithole countries here? We should have more people from places like Norway

So he is saying Haitians (who are primarily black) should go to Africa and America should get more people for Norway (which is primarily white). That is pretty racist.
