Well, keep in mind it was a touch more French--which has "re" in it--and euphamisms like derriere were considered more pleasing than their counterparts. Consider, counter, and derriere all have consecutive "e" and "r" presses (ooh, press, there's another. And "here" or "there!").

It's actually quite easy to obtain a sample article from the "early days" of typewriters, and English wasn't half as lacking in "re" combinations as you think "er" ones may have been. Invoice (for sale on Amazon for almost $1300), letter; 1934, newsprint, etc. Well past the Shakespearian, Edwardian, and Victorian eras, wouldn't you say? And only a mere 30 years before cinematic photography really got rolling. Think about it: the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence are both pre-typewriter era, but most post-print (as in printing press) publications and documents are perfectly readable and understandable to modern English readers (excusing that whole f/s mess), with few exceptions.

This letter says it

E. Robert de Luccia, who received his degree in Civil Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1927, served in a number of capacities for both public and private organizations and firms. From 1938-1942, he was a consultant on hydroelectric plants for the Federal Power Commission, returning to the agency in 1945, when he was made Chief, Bureau of Power. During WWII, de Luccia was called to active duty in the Chief of Engineers Office, and he was placed in charge of the aircraft factory and modification center construction program. He later became operations officer of the Engineering Division, SHAEF, in the European theatre, for which Lieutenant Colonel de Luccia was awarded the Legion of Merit. A consultant to the Economic Cooperation Administration, de Luccia was also a member of the official U.S. delegation to negotiate an international treaty with Canada regarding the use of Niagara Falls as a source of additional power.

> That is, until Trump, the government functioned... as a state.

I don't know which is more delusional, the idea that the US government has ceased to function as a state, or the idea that personal policy making is novel.

If you truly think this sort of thing is unique to the trump administration, you're simply admitting that you have no knowledge of history. FDR set the price of gold based on what numbers he thought were lucky. Obama's principle foreign policy advisor was an [aspiring failed novelist]( Woodrow Wilson's primary diplomat was a texas fixer with no official job.

If you think that trump has single handedly managed to destroy the american state, well, there is no answer to that level of delusion. Refuting your your points individually would just a waste of breath, because you clearly have no interest in truth. You just want to scream orange man bad at the top of your lungs.
