Ask A Genius 441 – Waiting for the Shoes (and the Beat) to Drop (3)

November 12, 2018

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: Stupid stuff continues to happen and come out of the White House every day. So, I think that in the years to come; this period will be the focus of some movies, some books, similar to other crisis points in history, e.g., the Cuban Missile Crisis, Watergate, and so on.

All of those have been crisis points in the history of the country. With the Cuba Missile Crisis, it was supercharged for 10 days, where Americans didnèt know whether or not they would be blown up in a nuclear war.

Similarly, we donèt know how much damage will be done when Trump is held to account. It is not 100% certain if he can be held in check via normal legislative means. That’s it. We are in limbo.

We are in limbo with the real possibility of horrible stuff happening and now know what that horrible stuff will be.
