I wish I had a time machine to see how this plays out in the Republican party.

Bill Maher did a monologue about it a few weeks ago. The Reps did not get what they wanted with Trump (they would have preferred almost any of the others who ran in 2016). But they are getting what they need with two SCOTUS appointments, a slew of federal judges, heads of agencies sympathetic to the destruction of those agencies (e.g. EPA), etc.

It's playing out quite well for the Reps. The possibility of another SCOTUS appointment over the next 5 years likely has them giddy.

For all that they can excuse an inveterate liar, con artist, adulterous, treasonous, Russia-conspiring, white supremacist, wannabe-dictator.
