Fine piece, not that I needed any persuading. But you have to be pretty appalling to end up lower than the likes of Buchanan or Nixon.

An excellent summary in the Atlantic. The last paragraph caught my eye. Trump should never have his name on any government building or project in the future.

Congress must tend to American memory. It should establish a Joint Congressional Committee to study January 6 and the events and activities leading up to it, have public hearings, and issue a report. And it should bar the naming of federal buildings, installations, and vessels after Trump; his presidency should be remembered, but not commemorated.
