I’ve added U.S. Government and Politics to the many CrashCourses I’m watching now, and the current political climate is making for a weird viewing experience. The course was produced during the Obama administration, so discussion of now-contentious topics like Executive Orders is very colored for me. E.g., the host will make common asides to the effect of “hopefully this will never be used for evil, hehe”, or give benevolent examples — you know, past presidents using various powers to the benefit of most people.

And then I think about #45, or Scumbag Ryan, and shudder.

If only you’d known, CrashCourse. If only.
