Default Donald Trump and norms

For four years, many liberals accused then-President Trump of "smashing norms."

And, frankly, this complaint was not entirely unfounded.

But what Donald Trump did in this regard was practically nothing when compared with what his enemies have recently done.

Raiding a former president's house, after all, is surely the very epitome of smashing a norm.
"In his second inaugural address, [Franklin D.] Roosevelt sought 'unimagined power' to enforce the 'proper subordination' of private power to public power. He got it…"—George Will, July 8, 2007
