On Monday’s The Last Word, one would think that Nixon biographer and voracious student of presidential history Elizabeth Drew would be able to speak specifically about the political landscape when asked to tie the (tired) Trump-Watergate knot on MSNBC, and avoid trite partisan talking points.

Notwithstanding his avowed commitment to obfuscating biological truths about gender in the name of science/leftism, Nye spoke with unequivocal scientific certainty about humanity’s impending doom.
