Hack #6

When the Professor was talking about the Watergate scandal with Nixon, it remind me a lot of the movie “Gangs of New York.” While this movie got history completely wrong in many ways, it showed a parallel to Nixon and the Watergate Scandal in which these gangs controlled everything in the city from elections of mayor to who controls the money. Much like how in the Watergate Scandal, Nixon and his “lackys” did all in their corrupt power to get what they want while also keeping a mask of being patriotic and a president who loves the country. Nixon most likely resembles the anti-immigrant gang leader William Cutting in a more concealing way.
